Tom Kitayama Elementary
The first day of school is Wednesday August 24, 2016. Your student can arrive on the playground at 7:45. School starts at 8:00 and ends at 2:05 for grades 1st to 5th. The Kindergarten day will end at 11:20 until September 26, 2016 when their school day will end at 2:05.
Watch for summer sales and pick up your student's supplies early, so you can coast through summer with a breeze. Available for download here, in both English y Español.
As we know how it can be after school with traffic, and with the partnership of our UCPD has been working with us to help monitor/alleviate violations, please help remind parents/families about the drop off/pick up zones. We've had parents ticketed for parking in the red zones, blocking crosswalks, and parking illegally which creates safety issues for pedestrians and motorists this year. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students safe.

Come join us at Kitayama tonight for our annual Science Fair and Silent Auction! Students have worked very hard on these science displays, and teachers and PTA parents have created some amazing baskets, each one presenting an amazing value for the money. The money, by the way, goes straight to the classroom of the teacher associated with the basket, so you will be supporting our teachers and students with your purchases! Read More »»

New Haven Schools Foundation is donating money to each New Haven elementary school in celebration of the Bubbles of Fun Run community event. Every New Haven elementary school is being given $250 and the donation will increase to $500, if there are at least 40 elementary student registrations. Also, there is a new $5 race category for students that only want to run one of the kid races (400 meters, 800 meters, 1 mile). More info: https://nhsfoundation.org/
Are you wondering where your child's jacket went? Did they have a sweater or gloves that you can't seem to find? Please come check our Lost and Found in the Multi-Purpose room before April 1 to see if those missing items are sitting and waiting for you to find them!
Just a reminder that this week we have our last Kitayama Night Out for the year at Rose Garden in Union City. Unlike most of our others, this one is actually "3 nights out" since Rose Garden has committed to donating 15% of your food purchase to Kitayama beginning this Thursday, December 17 through Saturday, December 19. The flyer, which you will need to take with you to the restaurant to get the donation, went out on Peachjar and I have attached one here as well. Read More »»
