August 2019 Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians, Students and Community Members,
       Welcome to our new Kindergarten students!  Thank you to our parents/guardians for attending our Grades 3-5  Open House.  The event was well attended!  The Open House for Pre-K, K, 1 and 2 will be held on Wednesday, September 18th.  Field Parking will be available at 5:00 p.m.  Enter via Maunaloa Ave.
       We held our Welcome Back to School Assembly to introduce students to our 2019-20 SY teachers and staff.  Welcome to the following teachers and staff joining our school ohana:
       Ms. Caitlyn Cortez, English Learners Teacher from Lihikai Elementary
       Ms. Kara Funakoshi, Grade 2 from Lanakila Elementary
       Mr. Gregory Serve, Grade 4 from Kalihi Kai Elementary
       Retired Teachers:
       Ms. Atsuko Sakumoto, Kindergarten Part Time Teacher, from Kapalama Elementary
       Ms. Nancy Kulp, Kindergarten and Grade 1 Part Time Teacher, from Punahou 
       Ms. Eileen McCool, Part Time Counselor/Mindful Teacher, from Punahou 
       The Aina in the Schools Program began with our Garden Party coordinated by Mr. Marsh.  Kindergarten students will participate in the Butterfly Garden and Grade 2 students will participate in the Nutrition/Wellness Program with Ms. Jan Yap.  Kumu Lino and students will care for our Hawaiian Garden.
       Exciting events are forthcoming!  Mr. Art Kimura, will be igniting enthusiasm for Science on September 11th for Grades 2-5!  Spaces were limited and parents/guardians were required to pre-register on a First Come, First Served basis. Fifty-five registered and unfortunately the workshop is now closed.
       Parent/Teacher Conference forms were sent home in this week's Thursday folder.  A reminder to list your first, second and third choices.  We will try our best to accommodate your choices.  Conferences will be held for nine days in October.  If you did not receive your form, please inform your child's teacher as soon as possible.
       Feel free to contact me or Mr. Oide, Vice Principal for further information at 733-4850 from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
