    I would just like to say MAHALO to all of you for making our CAPS DAY and our PINK OUT DAY such a success this past week!! Both events were held in support of Cancer Awareness Month and it was amazing to see the high number of students, community and staff members participate in both! Mahalo for your continued support!

    We are entering the last week in the month of October and it will continue to be busy for us….J

    Parent Teacher Conferences are still running this week and end on Friday, the 31st. As a reminder, school gets out at 1:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and at 1:10 pm on Wednesday so please be sure to mark your calendar with those change in times. Mahalo to the many of you who’ve already attended your scheduled conferences and to those of you whose appointment is this week, we look forward to seeing you! 

    Our 1st Quarter Awards Assembly has been rescheduled for this week Tuesday, the 28th. Mahalo for your patience and understanding with the change to our new date. We hope you can join us in the celebration of our students! Mahalo Mona for coordinating our assembly!

    Our 2nd ‘Ohana Night is scheduled for Wednesday beginning at 5:30 pm. Our focus for the evening is on Reading!! There will be 3 sessions running at the same time and attendees will move through each session in 30-minute increments. One session will focus on our new core program, Reading Wonders, led by Kumu Loke. The second session, lead by Kumu Taum, will focus on the new computer based program, I-Ready. The third session will focus on another computer based program known as Achieve 3000 or Kidbizz. This session will be led by Jody Ward, our Achieve 3000 representative. Wow!! It’s going to be an amazing night of learning for all of us! Mahalo to our session leads and to Jandi for coordinating our ‘ohana nights!

    Halloween events are scheduled for students on Friday! Permission forms were sent home to allow students to participate in our Haunted Hall (upper grades) or our Obstacle Course (lower grades). Please turn in your forms as soon as possible. Mahalo to Chandon, Ms. Masuhara and all of our Student Council members for putting this event together! Happy Halloween to everyone! Be safe as you “trick-or-treat/trunk” Friday night!

    And lastly, a letter was sent home on Wednesday regarding our upcoming Tsunami/Off Campus Evacuation drill scheduled for the first week in November. Please review it carefully and call us if you have any questions…
