12/7 - 12/14

Principals Message
As we approach the holiday season, we notice that our students are especially active and often need many reminders about behavioral expectations.  Since teachers will be giving end-of-the-quarter assessments, we need our students to be focused and do their best to show us what they’ve learned since school began.  Please support us by reminding your children about the expectations for them when they’re in school.  We find it helps a lot when parents and school staff are repeating the same message.  With over 1,000 students registered at our school, it can be challenging to keep our students focused on school when their minds are on the upcoming holidays!  Thank you for your support!
         I would like to personally thank all of the parents who have volunteered at Hale Kula this semester.  Your assistance and support are very much appreciated.  We are always looking for ways to increase volunteerism, so if you have any great ideas that may have worked elsewhere, we’d love to hear from you.  Call me at 622-6380, e-mail me at, or speak with our Parent Community Networking Center coordinator, Ellen Petry, in room P14. 
         Enjoy the holiday season, be safe, and take care! Mahalo!  Jan Iwase, Principal

Lunch supervisors
Aloha, Once again we are looking for lunch supervisors both permanent and substitutes.  Lunch supervisors work either an hour and a half shift or a two hour shift both at $8.00 per hour.  If you are interested but aren't familiar with our cafeteria, I strongly encourage you to sit through our lunch block 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM in order to see what the lunch supervisors are responsible for.   If this looks like a job you are ready, willing, and able to tackle, please leave your name and phone number at the Main Office to schedule an interview.  Thank you, Agnes Leinau, Vice Principal 622-6380 ext 225

If you are not continuing at Hale Kula next year, please let the office know now. The teachers need to prepare a final report card. Teachers are not here over break, so all your exit paperwork will be delayed due to alte notification.
