December 7 all school library books must be returned. Mahalo
If your child comes home and informs you about a problem with another student, please relay that concern to your child’s teacher or an administrator. We will follow up with this concern. Parents should NOT investigate on their own by confronting the other student. We have procedures which must be followed and offer every child due process, the opportunity to tell their side of the story. When the administration makes a decision regarding consequences, this information is only shared with the students’ parents or guardians. Please do not ask us to violate confidentiality procedures by demanding to know what kind of disciplinary action is being taken.
Remember that “discipline” means “to teach” and in elementary school, we are teaching students about following rules, treating others respectfully, and learning from their mistakes.
Edline Parent Code
If you did not receive your Edline parent code to access certain information on the school web page (www.halekula.k12.hi.us), please email Principal Iwase at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you the letter with your code.
Jingle Bell Run
Our 8th Annual Jingle Bell Run will be Wed. Dec. 5 but we will collect differently this year. Instead of bringing gently used toys to donate we are making a cash donation to Laulima Giving Program. Each child is asked to bring $1.00 to the field before walking or running to holiday music for 20 minutes. Laulima means cooperation and working together. This program helps Hawaii’s struggling families’ by providing them with life’s basic necessities, year round emergency assistance and a brighter holiday season. Thank you for your donation.
If you are PCSing or changing schools please let the office know ASAP. They usually ask for 2 weeks notice to get a release packet ready for the next school.
