Kittredge Konnection – March 6, 2018


Project Cicero Bay Area is At Kittredge This Week!

The Kittredge community is partnering with Project Cicero Bay Area. We are taking part in a children’s book drive designed to create and supplement classroom libraries in schools that desperately need books. Many other San Francisco schools are participating, and together, we hope to collect and distribute thousands of books to over 300 teachers, reaching 10,000 students in need this year.

Books in need are: Beginning Readers, Picture Books, Board Books, Early and Middle Grade Chapter Books, Young Adult Fiction, Graphic Novels, Classic Literature, Geography/History, Multicultural Literature, Biographies, Poetry, Plays/Drama, Up-to-date Reference. Please no Adult Books or textbooks.


Habit of the Mind for March: Thinking Interdependently

Thinking interdependently means to be able to share ideas, listen to each other, build ideas collaboratively and draw on each other’s individual strengths. Interdependent thinkers know that we all benefit from sharing ideas, inventions, and problem solving.

We will see the results of Kittredge students working interpedently at our Talent Show later this month. Their classroom performances are the outcome of each grade listening to each other and collaborating with their Performing Arts teacher.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~Margaret Mead



Important KPA Information from Jennifer Buzick and Linda Hughes

We can’t wait to see you this Saturday, March 10th from 6 to Wine:30 for the KPA Spring Social, generously hosted by Devon & Nick McConnell. For those able to join us and make some “pour” decisions, please do not forget to bring your wine, your vino, your grown-up juice, your spare libations!

There will be a small token of our appreciation in it for you. And if that’s not incentive enough, remember your generosity directly benefits your child! Any questions, donations in absentia, love notes or life tips can be sent to Jennifer (Holden’s mom) at:

Also, please remember to come “double fisted”… along with wine for the auction, please bring a potluck dish to share. It’s always nice to be able to mix some food with our drinks!

And finally, please note that the McConnell’s live on Portola Street (not Portola Drive or in Portola). They are in the Presidio… the last house on the left. Their exact address is on the evite.

See you on Saturday between 6 and 9:30. Cheers!


Enrollment for Next Year

We have received reenrollment confirmation from every family who is returning… thank you all! We look forward to another year together with you and your lovely children.

The next step is creating a Tuition Agreement by choosing your payment dates, options, and methods. TADS sent that link out to you last Friday and the information needs to be completed by Monday, March 12.

Thank you to everyone who has already completed that step. Please let us know if you have any problems or concerns.


No Study Hall Next Thursday – Extended Day is Open

Please remember that because we have no classes scheduled next Friday, there will be no Study Hall on Thursday. Extended Day is scheduled as usual and Study Hall students may join Extendo until 4:30 if you need the coverage.


Our Second Trimester Ends Next Friday, March 16

No Classes; Extended Day will Open for 5 or more Students

There will be no classes next Friday so that our teachers can have a workday. Please complete the survey monkey form so we know if your child will need Extendo.

The Kittredge School Talent Show is Thursday, March 22 at 6:30

***Important: Extendo will close at 5:00***

Please join us at Kanbar Hall in the JCCSF for a great time! The doors to Kanbar Hall will be open at 6:00. Please make sure that you are there by 6:15 so you don’t miss a minute of this wonderful evening.

Classes are working on their group performances with David. Each child’s role in the class production is important so please let us know if your child will not be attending the talent show.

We hope all students and families will attend. Have your child show you what they are doing!

Important information from David Silverman: All music must be edited to no longer than 3 minutes and turned in by Friday for your child to be able to perform this year. Some music received has been too long and some music that has been promised has not yet been received. Thanks for your help with this Friday deadline.

Save the Date! Details will follow.
