Each year we teach your students Internet safety lessons in the library. Attached is the PDF Family Tip Sheet.
In Kinder students will be able to ...
1. Discover that the Internet can be used to visit far-away places and learn new things.
2. Compare how staying safe online is similar to staying safe in the real world.
3. Explain rules for traveling safely on the Internet.

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… »»
