Aloha mai kākou. Please review information about a free mathematics workshop being offered to all KES parents.
DATE: Tuesday, March 4, 2014
TIME: 5:00 – 6:15 pm
PARTICIPANTS: KES parents
LOCATION: Princess Ruth Keʻelikōlani Performing Arts Complex
TOPIC: Mathematical Thinking (NOTE: workshop content is new and is not a repeat of the September 2013 parent workshop)
PRESENTER: Greg Tang is the author of several bestselling, innovative picture books that teach math in a whole new way. His books and workshops encourage participants to use creativity and common sense to solve problems, rather than formulas and memorization. Parents attending the workshop will gain confidence, learn effective computational and problem-solving skills, and develop a new appreciation for math. Greg’s goal in each session is to show parents first-hand how fun and rewarding problem-solving can be. His lively sessions are fast-paced and interactive, and participants often leave truly inspired about math.
CHILDCARE: Kama`āina Kids will extend their care for the day to 6:30pm. Your KES child may attend Kama`āina Kids directly after school, until the end of the parent workshop. If your child is not a registered member of Kama`āina Kids, the $5 drop-in fee will apply.
If you would like to drop off you non-KES keiki (minimum age of 5 years old) to Kama`āina Kids for the duration of the workshop, you may drop them off at 5:00pm. The $5 drop-in fee will apply for these keiki as well. If you have any questions regarding child care for March 4th, please email our Student Activities Coordinator, Shelley Wee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
REGISTRATION: We are able to accommodate 650 parents at this event, however registration will help us adequately prepare for the parent workshop. Please complete the following Surveymonkey link by Friday, February 28, 2014.
A confirmation email will be sent prior to the event.
Mahalo for supporting your child’s education.

Aloha KES ‘Ohana,
Christmas is quickly sneaking up on us and will arrive before you know it. Na Keiki o Ka ‘Aina, The Chapel Team and Bible Clubs, and ‘Aha ‘Öpio would once again like to partner with the entire KES ‘ohana to help O‘ahu’s families in need. We encourage you to participate in The Christmas Box service project, which will help provide a bit of Christmas joy to some of our island’s keiki. It is unfortunate that some of O‘ahu’s families are in need of assistance, but with all of us working together we are able to support them in a small way. We are blessed and it is our desire to extend our reach beyond our campus walls to make a difference in the community. Continue reading

The new 2013-2014 school year has gotten off to a great start. Itʻs hard to believe the first quarter is already coming to a close. We continue to engage our students in a rich variety of learning experiences that are WEO infused, challenge them to think critically and apply new learning. They use a variety of resources to continue to build their background knowledge, and strengthen their intellect and abilities.
