Happy Halloween!

Decorating huge pumpkins with our 7th grade buddies were so much fun.  Besides working together in their big classroom, we got to know our tall pals. They are the best because every one of them helps us and are so kind. We're anxious to view our two silly pumpkins and the other pumpkins from the different grades in the 'Gallery of Pumpkins' in our Aloha Garden.

What is Halloween? Here are our thoughts.......

A note from Mrs. Lee:

There are a number of educational apps available for a small fee or free that you may have downloaded on your iPad.  When you select apps, consider those that teach or practice curriculum and skill, are interactive, provide immediate feedback, and possibly with multiple users.
Here are a few top picks from my collection:
  1. Bob Books Reading  Magic Lite - Reading with this phonics-based intereactive game
  2. Toontastic - Create Cartoons
  3. Futaba - game for 2-4 players
myON Reader is also available for your iPad.  You can download up to 20 books for your child to read without  quizzes. Isn't that convenient for you and educational for the children?

Please remember:
  • Tuesday, October 30th - Book Share due.  Each keiki needs to bring a book s/he enjoyed recently to share with the class.  S/he will read the title and author of the book.  S/he will show an illustration and explain why it was their favorite part of the book. Please email me whether your child plans to share on Monday, October 29th or Tuesday, October 30th.
  • Wednesday, October 31st - Halloween Parade, 8:30am. (Please have your child come to school dressed for the occasion.) The HMS ghosts, princesses, and other creatures will emerge from their classrooms at 8:30am. Each grade level, beginning with the PreK 3 year olds, will parade around the blacktop two times. At the end of the parade, the children will return to their rooms and change to school attire.  If you plan to attend this event, you might consider arriving early to place your chair in the coolest spot. You are also extremely welcome to assist your child in changing back to his/her school clothing after the parade and taking their Halloween costume home. 
  • Friday, November 2nd - Scholastic Book Orders due.
Happy Trick-or-Treating,
Mrs. Lee
