    We are in our last week of February! It’s so hard to believe that we have only 3 more weeks left of the 3rd quarter!

    A special shout out goes to our 4th grade students and staff! Students in grade 4 took their 2nd round of HSA Science testing last week and they did very well! After our first round of testing in November, we were at 55% proficiency. With this 2nd round of testing, we are now at 68% proficiency!!! That is SUPER AMAZING!! Mahalo nui to Kumu Foster, Kumu Agbayani, Kumu Harada, Kumu Yung, Aunty Kaci, and to all of our 4th graders!! Hulō! Hulō!

    Our 4th ‘Ohana Night is scheduled for Wednesday evening. Our focus is on a Healthy Heart with Preschool and Kindergarten leading the sessions this evening. In addition, I will also use this time to encourage families to participate in the student school uniform survey and share current school information with our families. Please come and join us!! Mahalo to preschool, kindergarten, Jandi, Mona, Chandon and all those who were involved in making this evening possible!

    Just a friendly reminder, our school student uniform survey is still open. It will remain open until the evening of our ‘Ohana Night. The URL address for the survey was provided in the January and the February monthly bulletin. The survey has been open since December 30, 2014. Please log on to the website and share your thoughts with me about this topic. Thank you to the many of you who have already logged on to take the survey!

    Our 1st College and Career Day is set for this Friday, the 27th! Students in grades 3 through 6 will listen to guest speakers share information about their careers and college experience. The whole intent to this day is to build awareness and expose students to the various career options that are available. I’m excited to see our students participate on this day. Mahalo to Chandon, Lena, Jandi and Janel for putting this event together!

    As a reminder, next week (March 2-6) is our school’s Spirit Week. Please mark your calendar for the daily themes and remind your child to “dress up”.  Daily participation by homerooms will be counted. Mahalo to our Student Council members, Chandon, and Janel for coordinating the events during the week!

                Monday – Pajama and Crazy Sock Day

                Tuesday – Career Day

                Wednesday – Crazy Hair and Moustache Day

                Thursday – Sports Day

                Friday – Homeroom Competition and Talent Show Day

    Have a great week, everyone! 

    Be Strong, Be Proud, Be Pono! 

    A Hui Hou!
