Our awesome students were honored today at a special luncheon for being great learners and teachers to others in school. We are proud of them for demonstrating A’o. Ho’omaika’i, Dara and Kalā!
Hoʻomaikaʻi to our students that were recognized for their hard work and achievements at the 2nd Trimester Awards Assembly. We cheered on students for their academic success and perfect attendance. Check out these pictures to see who received the awards.
Last week Friday was Jump Rope for Heart. Our kula ha’aha’a had a fabulous time jumping rope to raise money for a worthy cause. Students collected donations to help the American Heart Society in their mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Great job, keiki!
Papa ʻEkolu Students did a wonderful job in opening up their own businesses. Check out the smiling faces, cool products and fun that we all had at Market Day 2015. Mahalo to our families for helping out with the production of the fabulous products!
Yesterday two students from our Kula Ha’aha’a 3B classroom were honored for receiving the Hāweo Award for the month of January. Cadence and ‘Ailani both consistently demonstrate the Hawaiian value “A’o” by being active and engaged learners in their classroom. Hoʻomaikaʻi e na haumana!
Ho’omaika’i to our Third Graders for participating in our annual Kula Ha’aha’a Speech Festival! Those moving on to the semi-finals are:
Damien and Kāhili
Reece and Kalia
Lucas and Chayden
Cadence and Kahele
Good luck on Wednesday!
Papa ‘Ekolu students took a trip to downtown Hilo to visit the Farmers’ Market. Students are currently learning about the economy and were able to contribute to our economy by being consumers. They had a limited budget to buy items such as breads, fruits, vegetables, and more! In addition, students observed how the various vendors run their businesses. The students studied the way items were displayed, priced and packaged. This is in preparation for their own Market Day that is being held in February. It was an enjoyable day of outdoor learning!
A’o- to learn; to teach.
Our students honored at today’s luncheon were Kahele and Lucas. These two awesome students are perfect examples of A’o. They appreciate the opportunity to learn here at school and take their studies very seriously. Both Haumana are excellent role models for their peers. Congratulations, Kahele and Lucas!
Aloha e na Keiki,
After school today, Ms. Everett informed me that some of her students were having trouble with their blogs. I don’t know if our class is experiencing the same issues, but if you are, please don’t worry about completing the blog assignment for tonight. I will give you time to do it in class on Tuesday.
Congratulations to Reece and Kalukalani for consistently demonstrating A’o! These girls are true learners who are constantly trying to gain knowledge and share their knowledge with others. Way to go!
