Your children are encouraged to read daily through books they have at home. HMS also offers an effective  personalized online reading program, myON Reader, so  please continue to support your child  to improve their reading skills.

All the students enjoy our online 'Mathletics' program which is a fun way to practice and challenge their Math skills.  Therefore, additional tasks have been assigned on a more challenging level.  Please help your keiki if they some assistance logging in.  Due date is Friday, May 11th.
