  • Last Week of the 1st Quarter.......

    Aloha e Keaukaha ‘Ohana!

    “Don’t worry about failures,

    worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”

    ~ Jack Canfield 

    It’s the last week of the 1st quarter and we are heading to the one week Fall Break! Time has really flown by us this quarter!

    Your children have worked so hard every single day learning in our new Reading and Math programs. Times have really changed and the state standards our students are expected to meet truly require a higher level of thinking.

    Some of you got a feel of how math is being taught in our classrooms during our recent ‘Ohana Math Night on September 24th. There is no one-way to solve a problem. Students are expected to learn multiple ways to solve problems and be able to explain how they reached their answer. It’s really teaching our students to be critical-thinkers, be problem-solvers and to be able to justify or explain their thinking! This is a stretch, a different way of thinking, for many of our students and our staff, including myself. J But, we still make learning fun!

    If you can make it, please attend our next ‘Ohana Night scheduled for October 29. The focus will be on Reading. We will share with you information on one of our new reading programs, Reading Wonders, and on two computer-based programs being used by our students, Achieve 3000 and I-Ready. Both of these programs are available for your child to use while at home with you. Come join us! We look forward to seeing you there!

    If we don’t get to see you during this last week of the 1st quarter, have a safe FALL BREAK. Our students return to us on Monday, the 13th.

    As always, if you have any questions or just need to touch base with me, don’t hesitate to stop by. 

    Mahalo for all of your support!

    Be Strong, Be Proud, Be Pono!

    A Hui Hou!
