Principal's Message

First of all, we’d like to thank parents and students who took time out of their busy schedules to meet with their child’s teachers at our 4th annual Parent Showcase Conference.  We were glad to see so many of you and many had nothing but positive things to say about the showcase conference.

We have 4 more weeks of school left.  I know that our counselors have begun calling parents to inform them if their child is academically at risk of failing a subject or subjects.  If you are unsure of your child’s academic standing, please feel free to contact your child’s respective counselor.  Please continue to talk to your child about what they are doing in class, check their planners to see if teachers are writing comments, and remind your child to be on their best behaviors while in school.

As always, our teachers, counselors, and support staff have been busy all year long making sure that all students are being successful in school.  We are celebrating and appreciating our dedicated staff during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6 - 10, 2013).  Any parent who feels that their child’s teacher, counselor, or support staff went above and beyond the call of duty this school year and would like to personally commend them, I would appreciate your phone call.  You can reach me at 697-7121.

We are offering a few summer programs this summer for our current 7th graders and incoming 7th graders.  Applications were sent home to all students via your child through their homeroom teachers for 7th grade and to the elementary schools for 6th graders.  Your child can participate in an academic program for Math/Reading as well as other enrichment classes.  Some students have also been targeted based on Hawaii State Assessment data and those students are also being invited to attend an academic program for 4 weeks.  Enrollment is limited so get your forms in today.  If you didn’t receive a form from your child but you are interested in applying them for the summer program, please feel free to contact Kristy Wagatsuma at 697-7121.  Classes will run from June 3 – 27 (8 am – 12 noon).  Again, the program is FREE and lunch is also FREE for all who attend.

All students attending Class day activities will still be required to have their school IDs with them on Friday, May 3rd and dress code needs to be followed for students attending the 8th grade banquet.

Lastly, if your child is planning on participating in any activity next school year, it would be a good idea to have them take their physicals this summer.
