Congratulations to William in KB and Leigh-Ann from KA, as they were able to complete the kindergarten level in IXL Math! Awesome
job! They have both moved onto the first grade level and learning more
everyday. William and Leigh-Ann were able to receive a special prize of
their choice from the treasure box!
Earlier in the year, Mrs. Pai’s class took part in a lemonade-making math lesson which integrated skills such measurement, ratio, and proportions. As a culminating activity to our lemonade math lesson, as well as a means of modeling sustainability, papa `elima was able to plant their own Meyer lemon tree. We hope it will someday provide our kula with many lemons to make our own lemonade. Soon our fifth graders will pass on the kuleana in caring for this plant to our fourth graders. Mahalo to Mrs. Pai for purchasing the lemon tree, and to our awesome grounds crew: Uncle Kenny, Uncle Kawika, and Uncle Greg in assisting us with this project. Finally, thank you to Mrs. Samura for her time and showing us how a simple activity such as making lemonade can incorporate so much math!
Last month Mrs. Pai’s class was rewarded with an `onolicious pizza party! They were able to master the most ixl skills amongst the upper elementary grades during the second trimester. All of their hard work allowed them to master over 600 skills! Awesome job 5A! Mrs. Derr’s kindergarten class was also able to enjoy a pizza party, as they were able to master the most skills from grades K-2.
Look at all of these happy keiki! Why are they smiling? That’s because they are all winners for the month of February. Their names were drawn amongst all of their classmates who were able to master seven ixl skills. Congratulations to: Kacie, grade K; Lucas, grade 1; Hulali, grade 2; Kaimi, grade 3; Kylan, grade 4; and Gia, grade 5. They each won a Yogurtland gift card!
Robotics night on February 27th was attended by nearly 300 keiki and `ohana. Our special guests, Mr. Dale Olive and his awesome Waiakea High School robotics team and teachers provided a night full of fun and excitement. Students were able to work with their `ohana to build a brushbot. Then they were able to race against fellow classmates to see who could obtain the fastest time. Incredibly enough, there were brushbots traveling 50 centimeters within less than 3 seconds! A big mahalo goes out to all the participants and faculty who helped to make this a memorable night!
