This Week’s News
Habits of Mind
At last Wednesday’s assembly, Ms. Pon-Barry and Ms. Gules introduced this month’s Habit of Mind, Applying Past Knowledge to New Situations, with a game of trivia! Students broke out into groups and tried their hand at answering questions written by our teachers, using knowledge they already possessed to form their answers. See photo and videos of our assembly on instagram.

Cross Country’s first meet is officially over. A big thank you to all of the parent volunteers who made it possible! The next meet will be next Wednesday, September 28. Races are at 4:30 and 5:00 pm.
Volleyball season has begun! The team’s first game is this Wednesday, September 20, at Burkes. Players should arrive at the gym by 5:20pm, and the game begins at 5:45pm.
It’s that time of year already! Fall Holiday is on Monday, October 9. School will be closed, and will resume on Tuesday, October 10.
Join our first KPA meeting of the year this Thursday, Sept 21st at 6-7pm at Kittredge. This will be one of our only meetings that will be in person, with free childcare and pizza for the kids. Also, snacks and drinks for the adults! Zoom link sent day-of for those who cannot make-it in person. Now’s your chance to make a difference! The goal is to spread-out the volunteer jobs so that they are manageable for busy parents. If we all pitch-in a little, it builds a big community for our kids to enjoy and gives us ways to help our teachers to feel appreciated.
The KPA is looking for a Treasurer for next year. A special thank you goes out to Anna Malyala, (Ishwar's mom, 7th) and current KPA Treasurer, who has given many years so that the KPA funds would grow and be put to good use. This is the perfect year for her to help transition into a new volunteer (or two). Questions? Email Jessica May-Shah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
