Principal's Message

  • Entering the 3rd Week of the 4th Quarter....

    Aloha e Keaukaha ‘Ohana!!

    “It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;

    it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”

    ~ Red Jacket

    This week is another full week for us here at Keaukaha!

    Our students in grade 3 through 6 will participate in statewide testing (HSA Bridge) over the next two weeks. This is our last and final round and the schedule is as follows:

             4/ 7   Monday – Set up of testing area

             4/8    Tuesday – Grade 5 Reading (Fa’anunu only), Grade 6 Reading (all)

             4/9    Wednesday – Grade 4 Science (all)

             4/10   Thursday – Grade 3 Reading (all)

             4/11   Friday – Grade 3 Math (all)

    Good luck to all our students taking the assessment!! Please help us remind our students that it is not only about hitting the target of 300, but it is also about showing GROWTH since their last test. Demonstrating growth over a period of time is the focus for everyone!!

    Our last and final ‘Ohana Night is scheduled for this Wednesday, 4/9. Kindergarten and grade 1 teachers and students will take the lead with a focus on Science! From what I gather, it is sure to be a great night of learning!! I hear Robotics activities are in store for us! How exciting!! Please join us that evening!

    A big MAHALO to our community, parents, staff and students for all that you do in making Keaukaha one of the best places to be!!

    Be Strong, Be Proud, Be Pono!

    A Hui Hou!
