Kittredge Konnection – May 2, 2017

Screen-Free Week: In Progress

Monday, May 1st to Sunday, May 7th

We hope that many of our students and families are joining the fun and turning off their screens for 7 days. For entertainment, participants are able to read, daydream, explore, enjoy nature, and spend time with family and friends. This annual celebration gives children, families, schools and communities a chance to turn off screens and turn on life.

Screens can still be used for homework. The idea of this week is to find and enjoy other means of entertainment and socializing for seven days.


E.R.B. Testing Is Next Week for 3rd to 8th Graders

Please make sure your child is well rested, has a healthy breakfast and is at school on time for these standardized tests. Homework will be lighter than usual.


Kittredge Team Sports Shop Closes at Midnight Tomorrow

BSN Sports has worked with our PE teacher Ms. Gules, to open another Kittredge School Pop-Up store. The online store is open now through midnight tomorrow, May 3. Your order should arrive at Kittredge on May 25.

Everyone looks great in Kittredge gear and showing Kittredge pride!

Seventh Grade Parent High School Information Night – May 11 @ 6:00pm

All parents of 7th graders are invited (and strongly encouraged) to meet with Mr. Young to hear about the admissions process for High School. Now is a great time to begin organizing your calendar with dates and details so there will be less stress in the Fall! Students will have a lot of support next year so this meeting is for parents only.


Teacher Development Day – May 19th

Friday, May 19, is a scheduled workday for teachers so there will be no classes in session. With a minimum of 5 students, Extended Day will be open during the hours of 8:00am to 6:00pm and available for per diem drop in students ($40/day). There will be no charge for those with an Extended Day contract.

There will be a Survey Monkey form for parents to fill out so we can plan for Extended Day staffing. Thank you all in advance!


Talent Show DVDs are Available to Order

A DVD of this year’s wonderful Talent Show is available to purchase. Those of you who have already purchased one online will be receiving yours soon. If anyone else would like to order one, please send in the payment and your name. The cost is $20.00… quite a bargain and all proceeds go the KPA. Thank you Mr. Young!


There is Still Some Space Available in Summer School

Our 5-week program begins on June 19 and goes until July 21. Mornings are designed to keep students active and their grade level skills strong. The afternoons offer a variety of free play and structured activities. If you are interested, applications are available in the office or you can download one from our website.

Some space is still available for students who are entering 1st grade through 7th grade.


Planning for Next Year?

Our first day of school will be Wednesday, August 30. A complete calendar will be available after our Staff Development Day.
