This afternoon we were all a part of showing the true meaning of Christmas….which is in my opinion, giving to others who are most in need. Each of you has been a true blessing not only to this family but to everyone who may have given a little this Christmas to someone in need because of your example of kahiau.
How did it make you feel to be a part of this Holiday Gift Giving Project? Please explain in 3-4 sentences.
During this holiday season when all we see is ads for toys, food, games, clothes, ipads, and large screen t.v.’s let’s not forgot the true meaning of Thanksgiving. It is a time to remember and give thanks to all the people in our lives that love us unconditionally. Thank you to all my students for being a blessing in my life. I am thankful for each and everyone of you.
We’d first like to say “mahalo nui” to all those who helped make our huaka’i a great success! We appreciate each and every one of you. We give another warm mahalo to Mr. Kamisato from the middle school who took beautiful pictures of our little “princes and princesses.” You can find these pictures at the link below. Please come back soon for more pictures from Nani Mau Gardens.
If you are interested in just bringing in a toy/item I will have two show boxes that you can help fill. One will be for a boy 5-9 years old and the other for a girl 2-4 years old. Please bring in items by next week Wednesday.
You can also fill your own shoebox if you are interested. Please bring those in by next week Wednesday as well.
Remember this is all optional, so if you are unable to participate please don’t worry about it. Mahalo!
Good Morning Boys and Girls,

Are you wondering when you can work on it? Well, you may do so every morning before oli, during snack, study hall, and anytime you finish an assignment early.
Directions:Create a drawing, message, or scene of what God’s peace looks like to you. You can include words or phrases.
When you are done, email it to Kumu Shonnie at firstname.lastname@example.org
In your email, please include at least 3 complete sentences explaining what your creation is about.
Good luck peace creators!
Hello Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins! Are you ready to show off your costume for all to see? I know that I am looking forward to seeing all the creative costumes you will come to school with on Thursday. Here is the info for the parade on Thursday:
When: 11:50-12:15 Change into costumes
12:25-12:50 Parade (Starts at dining hall)
What to Bring: Your costume, bag to collect your goodies in, and a canned good to donate to the Hawai’i Food Basket
After the parade we will be having our 1st trimester celebration in our pod. You can change back into your uniform right away or keep it on for the celebration. If you decide to stay in your costume you will need to change back before 2:40.
In our Social Studies unit on government the students are learning about what makes citizens super duper. We even watched videos of kids being super citizens. They were then asked to identify characteristics of what they thought a Super School Citizen was. Here is a compilation of their thoughts:
CARING SWEET LOVING HELPFUL HONEST RESPECTFUL
RESPONSIBLE POSITIVE SELFLESS TRUSTWORTHY FRIENDLY
PATIENT HARD WORKERS EMPATHETIC FAIR
The class was then asked to brainstorm a project that could be done in or around our school to show that we can all be Super School Citizens. Helping our kindergarteners was voted as the number one choice. Tomorrow will be our first day working with Mrs. Derr’s class. Ms. Manliguis’ class will be teaming up with Mrs. Nihipali’s little ones. Our third graders will be reading a nonfiction book to one kindergartener while they take notes of their learning. We will then return next week Tuesday to help the keiki create a poster using their ipads!
Excitement is definitely in the air! Come back soon to see photos of our project!
This fall break I traveled to the island of Maui for a few days. Here are two photos of the beautiful sunset from my hotel room in Lahaina. All I remember was the sound of hundreds (well, it sure sounded like hundreds) of birds chirping, chirping, chirping in a tree not far from where I was sitting. Maybe the sunset makes them excited…?
Please leave a comment on this post about a highlight you had over your fall break by Friday, October 18th. You could share a special memory you made, somewhere you went, someone special you saw, etc… If you have a photo or object that you took/bought/found and would like to share it with the class, bring it in on Thursday or Friday to share during our Morning Meeting.
