This Week's News
Thank you to the Kittredge teachers, parents, and students who participated in last Thursday and Saturday's open houses. Zoe, Jessica, Cerys, Flynn, Minh, Tate, and first grade parent Jaclyn did us proud! Thank you for sharing your time and your Kittredge experience. We appreciate you and are so lucky to have you in our Kittredge community!
This Week in Sports
This week we're starting off strong with a volleyball game today, October 10th. Kittredge will face off agains KIPP Bayview Green at Shipwreck. The game begins at 4:00pm.
This Friday, October 13, is our next Cross Country meet at Hellman Hollow/Polo Fields. The race begins at 4:30pm, but students should arrive at 4:00pm for the walkthrough.
It's hard to believe but we are already halfway through our first trimester! Now is the perfect time to check in on your child's grades and make sure they are on track.
Parents can access their child's grades via the TeacherEase website. If you are unsure of how to use TeacherEase, have no fear! There is a TeacherEase Youtube channel full of helpful videos that will guide you through the the website. For a video guide to accessing your child's grades, click here.
K-3 go to the Pumpkin Patch
This Thursday, October 12, our K-3rd graders will go on a field trip to the Petaluma Pumpkin Patch! This fall field trip is one of our favorites, and we can't wait to hear about all the fun when they return. Students should wear comfortable walking shoes, layers, sun protection, and should bring a hearty lunch and a water bottle. Get ready for a day of fun!
Green Energy Project
Green Energy Challenge is BACK at Kittredge this year by popular demand! This innovative, after-school, hands-on educational program teaches kids about climate change and energy science (click here for a brief video). This program, aimed at grades 3-7, will be taught by Kittredge alumni, Jacob and Ari Bushler, and other student educators from St. Ignatius College Preparatory. The previous courses taught at Kittredge were enthusiastically received by both kids and parents, so space will be limited. Please CLICK HERE to fill out a Green Energy Challenge Interest Form for your student.
Log On, Log Off.
This is a gentle reminder to our families to check in with your child about shared devices. Computers at school are shared devices and we encourage our students to log out after each session. You can support this practice by logging in and out of home devices too. We thank you for your help as we teach our students healthy technology practices.
