Wacky Day… Tomorrow, November 4

Show your school spirit by wearing all things wacky.



Spanish Field Trip for 6th Graders This Thursday

This Thursday, November the 5th, our sixth grade students will be visiting “El Barrio de la Mission”. They will visit the murals of Cesar Chavez School, have lunch at the Taqueria Guadalajara and go to the Mission Cultural Center to see the exhibitions of the altars that local artists have made for the “Dia de los Muertos”. Students will leave Kittredge at 10:00 am and be back to school by 3pm.

Kittredge is covering the cost for transportation and the exhibition but we would appreciate it if each student could bring $13 for the taqueria.


Eighth Grade High School Recommendation Forms are Due Now

We are asking all 8th grade parents to help their children turn in all teacher and principal recommendation forms with stamped, addressed envelopes. Forms can be printed off most school’s websites and should be turned in by Thanksgiving Break to be sure to meet the deadline.


See’s Chocolate Fund Raiser… Get your Holiday Shopping Done the Easy Way

A note from Emily Wells, Chair

Back by popular demand the KPA is sponsoring this holiday fundraiser again this year. We chose See’s because of its fine reputation for quality. Your children were given the order information last week and the sale ends November 18.

Since all of the students will benefit from our fundraiser, we would greatly appreciate everyone’s cooperation. So please, help your child by taking orders from friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers.

Candy will be available for delivery to your customers, the second week of December.

Thank you for helping to make our fundraiser a BIG success! Please remember that all orders must be accompanied by a check made out to the Kittredge Parents Association (KPA).


New Month – New Friday Lunch Orders

Please return a Hot Lunch form for any Friday lunches you want to order in November. Forms need to be turned in to the office by noon on Thursday so we can count your child’s order. Just click here for a form: HL Nov

Habit of Mind for November:

Questioning and Problem Posing

“The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

~Albert Einstein

Effective problem solvers know how to ask questions to fill in the gaps between what they know and what they don’t know. Effective questioners are inclined to ask a range of questions.

“Knowing the answers will help you in school. Knowing how to question will help you in life.”

~Warren Berger


We hope to see lots of parents at the Parent Book Club (PBC) this Thursday at 6pm.
