Kittredge Konnection - May 28, 2024



Our Annual Beach Clean Up was a Blast!


Thank you, Kittredge community, for the wonderful contributions you each made to our Beach Clean Up! Our delicious feast of pasta, salads, hot dogs, and organic fruits and veggies was a sight to behold - you've really outdone yourself! We could not have asked for a better or more beautiful day to take care of our dear neighbor, Baker Beach.


Last Konnection of the Year!


It feels impossible but it's true -this is the last Konnection of the school year! It has been such a pleasure to share the wacky, wonderful, weekly updates of Kittredge with you all.


Summer Mailing


Parents, you can expect a few things to roll into your inbox in the first week of summer. You should receive supply lists and reading lists from your students' upcoming teachers, as well as report cards from the office.


This Week's News


Yearbooks


This afternoon Kittredge is abuzz with students signing each other's yearbooks and sharing sweet memories from the last year. Every student receives a yearbook to commemorate the year!


Take Me Out to the Ball Game!


Tomorrow the 7th and 8th grade classes will take MUNI with Mr. Young and Ms. Mara to a Giants game!


Students should either bring lunch, or money to purchase lunch at the ballpark. Please note that Oracle Park is cash-free, and students who plan on buying lunch should bring a debit card, device for ApplePay, or plan on converting cash to a card at the park.


Our 7th and 8th graders should return to Kittredge by 5:00pm.


7th Grade to the Legion of Honor


This Thursday, our 7th grade class will join Ms. Mara for a trip to the Legion of Honor! Students will walk to the museum from Kittredge and take in an exhibit of Japanese prints.


7th graders should come to school with a lunch, comfortable walking shoes, and money for treats.


Students will also have a surprise guest.... next year's 8th grade teacher Mr. Vance Whipple! We so look forward to the opportunity for our incoming 8th graders to meet their new teacher.


8th Grade Paddle Boarding and Mini-Golf


Also this Thursday, the 8th grade class will go paddle boarding in Marin, followed by mini golf! Parents, you should have received an email from Mr. Young with all the details. Please reach out to the office if you have questions.


Field Day


It's time...... Field Day is THIS FRIDAY!


For those who do not know, Field Day is an amazingly fun day where students will be participating in activities all day long with their friends and schoolmates. Activities range from 50 yard dash, relay races, football toss and an epic game of capture the flag! 


This year, Field Day will be at Lindley Meadow in Golden Gate Park,


We ask that each student wear their team color to show their team spirit for the day. You can find a list of team colors in your Konnection email. Each student will be given a Field Day T-shirt to wear that day, so we suggest you get creative with your team color! This can be pants, shorts, socks, shoes, headbands, hats – even wigs are encouraged! 


Please have your child bring a healthy, hearty lunch and their own water bottle, marked with their name.  There will be plenty of water for students to refill at the event.  It is going to be a long, active day, so don’t forget sunblock and a jacket! Blankets are encouraged for the giant picnic.
