Quarter 2 Update #1

Aloha Lions Ohana,

Welcome back Lions!  I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing fall break.  We are all so excited to have everyone back for the start of quarter 2 and we are ready to SHINE!  Today marks the beginning of our Safety Week.  In this safety week, we go through all our drills including, Earthquake, Fire, Lockdown, Mass Evacuation, and Shelter-in-place.  Please remind your children to think about safety at home, school, and when out in the community.  Life-altering events don't happen when we want them to, so we have to plan for every possible event.  Your family should have a plan for fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, or bad weather too.   We have a few other announcements today as well. 

  • Our scheduled parent workshop for this Wednesday, October 12th will be postponed until next Wednesday, October 19th as we need to get a count of participants.  Please be on the lookout for a sign-up sheet later this week so we can have the right amount of supplies. 
  • Our voluntary COVID vaccination clinic will be this Friday, October 14th.  If your child has signed up they will be automatically picked up, so no action is needed on your part, just be aware they may feel unwell the following day. 
  • Our quarter 1 awards assembly will be on October 26th, in person.  Parents will be welcome to attend.  It will be filmed and then posted on our school website.  We learned last year that our school's bandwidth isn't strong enough to broadcast live so a recording will be posted within 48 hours of the event.  PreK through 2nd grade will be from 8:15- 9:00 and 3rd through 5th grade will be from 9:00-9:45.  

Mahalo nui everyone for coming together for our first quarter to make it very successful!  It wasn't perfect, nothing ever is, but it went very well because we band together to improve, support each other, and choose love.  We do this as a family because, We are the Lions. We are the Future!
