Reminders for Parents

Aloha kakou,
Spring Break has arrived! Hope you and your keiki enjoy the next week playing and having fun.

A few bits of information:
  • Tuesday, March 27th -  Swim class continue. Please write a note to Mr. Kimura and Ms. Whitney if your child will not be able to participate.
  • Wednesday, March 28th - Ohi`a play, Voices of the Rainforest performance in the Social Hall. Hau`oli, the happy-face spider will introduce the students to the forest inhabitants of Hawai`i's past and present. Through their stories the keiki will learn the valuable lesson of maintaining balance and harmony in nature to preserve what is left of our precious rainforest.
  • Monday, April 9th - Dole Plantation field trip. Please have your child in school by 7:45am.

To celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day, K-1 entered an Earth Day Project  collaborating with classrooms around the World to create a recycled material monster or sculpture. Meet Keola, (the life, the health, the well-being) our Hawaiian monster robot.  It was named because it represents what the students knew they must do to preserve our planet. They want to protect our plants, air, animals, and water.  Pictures of Keola and the class were submitted to the coordinator of this project, an Art teacher from Hartland North Elementary in Hartland, Wisconsin. The point of contact was Mrs. Julia Atliano, whose Kindergarten class has been Skyping with us . What a great way to learn about global Earth Day inspired creations.

Malama pono,
Mrs. Lee
