Aloha e nå Ohana,
Mahalo for the kåkou effort to make Student-Led Conferences a success! We,the students and I, appreciate you joining us in celebrating the many successes and courageously facing the areas we are striving to improve on! “E hana püala kåkou!” Together, WE CAN!
As mentioned at conferences, trimester #3 is the “strong swim” to the finish for 5B! This is where we put all our ‘ike gained in the previous trimesters into “action!” A call to take a stand as the “waves keep rolling in.” Hoping that the info that you find on our class blog can offer support at home or please feel free to call, email, or write a note in the planner for me! Please read this whole post of important events!
