Come Join Us

What a fun week it has been! We’ve been showing our school spirit for I mua week by wearing our athletic wear and school logo wear. Tomorrow is Blue and White Day, so remind your keiki to wear our school colors.

Kula Ha’aha’a will be celebrating Halloween with a parade on Thursday, October 30th at 12:25 p.m. starting at Ha’aeamahi. Students should wear their SCHOOL UNIFORMS to school that morning and will be allowed to change after their specials class. Send your child to school with a canned good to donate to the Hawaii Island Foodbank.

Papa ‘Ekolu will be having a pilina activity following the Halloween Parade from 1:15-2:15 p.m. We invite family and friends to join us for an hour of fun, games, laughter and treats in Kina’u Pod. This will be a great way to end the first trimester of this school year. Hope to see you on Thursday!

Princess’s Ball

Papa ‘Ekolu’s annual Princess’s Ball was held on October 24, 2014 at Nani Mau Gardens. This event was held to celebrate the life and legacy of our beloved founder, Ke Ali’i Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Prior to attending this ball, Third Grade students researched Pauahi’s family roots, education, travels and more by reading books and watching videos about her. The Princess’s Ball provided the students with an opportunity to partake in many of the things that Pauahi enjoyed doing, such as appreciating the beauty of flowers in a garden, dining on fine foods, conversing with others, and of course, dancing. It was a joyful celebration to show our gratitude to an extraordinary woman with a generous heart. Mahalo Ke Ali’i Pauahi!

Generous ‘Ohana

Mahalo nui loa to Chayden’s ‘ohana for their generous makana to Team 3B. Each student received a screen protector to place on his/her iPad. We truly appreciate the thoughtfulness of Chayden’s family. Our iPads are a valuable tool that has made our learning in school engaging for the students. This gift will help us keep our iPads in tip-top shape.

As a reminder, the iPads will not go home over the Fall Break. Important updates will be made next week to ensure that the apps work properly. Look for a letter coming home tomorrow from our IT Department regarding Apple IDs.

Have a wonderful vacation!

Genius Hour = Engaged Learners

Look at what made my day today… students who were totally engaged in learning about topics they were truly interested in. During Genius Hour, students were enthusiastically watching videos, reading books and articles, searching the internet, and taking notes about volcanoes, ponies, baking, baseball and more! Boy was it a wonderful sight to see. Not a child was off-task. Just look at the pictures below. Some of them didn’t even notice me taking their picture.

More research needs to be done. We’ll continue our acquisition of knowledge next week. Until then, no one should be doing any projects at home. We need to be geniuses about our topics first, then we can start to work on our presentation to share our new knowledge with others.

I mua Team 3B!

We ARE Bloggers

Last week students created their very own blogs using their Google accounts and an app called Blogsy. Now the students will be able to share their daily thoughts, activities, learning and more with you and the world. If your keiki is in 3B, ask them to show with you their website address and feel free to comment back to them on one of their posts. Learning has never been more engaging and fun!
