Quarter 1 Update #1

Aloha Lions Ohana,

Holy moly this year is starting up fast and fun!  This first week and a half have flown by and it feels as though we are halfway into the year already.  I have a number of announcements for you today. 

  • Please join us in the cafeteria tomorrow morning at 8:00 am or online at meet.google.com/ovg-orky-ysw for our parent workshop.  We will be doing a make-and-take activity.  We are excited to see you there!

  • For dropping off and picking up, please only use the cafeteria parking lot, following our JPO's directions.  The office parking lot is not open for drop-off or pick-up.  Also, pedestrians, please do not use the cafeteria driveway to come onto campus, it is dangerous.  Please use the pedestrian gate by the Gulick bridge or the open gate just up the road from the parking lot to go in and out of campus. 

  • Picture Day is Tuesday, August 16th. Ace Portrait Studio envelopes will be coming home this Wednesday. If you would like to order your child's photo, please fill out the envelope, include payment, and have it ready on picture day. Orders turned in after picture day will be charged a $10 late fee. Ace accepts cash (exact amount, no change will be available) or check (made payable to Ace Portrait Studio).  All students will be photographed for their school ID and yearbook. Ordering pictures is optional. 

  • There is no school on August 19th and 26th. 

  • Anyone interested in the Monkey Pox Vaccine please call 808-586-4462 to confirm eligibility and to make an appointment with the Department of Health.

I am sure we will have many more announcements soon, so please remember to check our school website often at kwes.org.  Have a wonderful rest of the week and remember, We are the Lions. We are the Future!
