Aloha Haʻaheo Community, Family & Friends,
With 2018 coming to a close, we are now half way through the school year. It is also a time for reflection and a time to be grateful for all that we have and all the blessings we have received throughout the year. For Haʻaheo, we have had an amazing first semester and I just cannot wait for all the good things to come in the second!
We have had a handful of successful family events such as Open House, Literacy Night and Fall Festival. Makahiki Games and whole-school student performances was something new to this year’s Fall Festival. It was a memorable night and my heart swelled with pride watching our students give their all, while showcasing all that they have been learning in Hawaiian Studies.
Please join us for our final family event for 2018. On Wednesday, December 12th we will be hosting our Holiday Family Night at 5:30pm. Flyers for this event were sent home in today’s Tuesday Folder. To help us plan, please turn in your RSVP by Friday, Dec. 7th. We look forward to seeing you there!
On Wednesdays, student performances continue as each class performs based on this quarter’s Hawaiian Core Value: Hōʻihi. Next quarter we will focus on Kuleana (Responsibility). If you havenʻt been able to come by and watch your child perform, you can now look for it on our school website. This is the second year that we have been implementing these Core Value performances. The students are becoming more creative and comfortable being in front of the school showing off their Haʻaheo pride.
We need your help in reminding your child(ren)to wait properly at the bus ramp after school. We have had a high volume of complaints about students not following school rules or being insubordinate to the adults assisting and supervising. We expect all students follow school rules before, during and after school. It is a safety issue due to the volume of cars, high levels of noise and a large crowd of students congested in a small area. We would appreciate your assistance in discussing this with your child(ren), as we have given them multiple, school-wide reminders thus far.
Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!
Mrs. Jennifer Sueoka
