School Community Council Survey

If you have a child who is currently enrolled at Hale Kula, we would appreciate if you would complete a School Community Council survey.  Your responses will help us to improve our school.  The link is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K8VSLC6
and it doesn't take long to complete.  Cut and paste the link in your browser.  One survey per family, please.  When you're done, please print out the "Thank you" page, write your name and email address and submit it to the school office.  One lucky respondent will win a prize!

2)  Our final Super Eagle of the Quarter celebration conflicts with Wheeler Middle School's 8th grade graduation ceremony.  Therefore, we will reschedule our Super Eagle of the Quarter event for Wednesday, May 22 at 5:00 p.m. in the cafeteria.

3)  Thank you to everyone who volunteered at tonight's Book Fair event and Talent Show.  The evening was a huge success!

4)  We hope you plan to attend our May Day celebration on Wednesday, May 15!  The students will all be performing with their grade level.  If you've never attended a May Day program before, you're in for a treat! Don't miss it!

Lunch Costs until the End of the School Year

Several parents have asked how much money they should deposit in their child's Accutab meal account so they will be covered until the end of the school year.

 Please know that if there are extra funds at the end of the school year, you will have the option to carry the funds over to next school year if your child will be returning to Hale Kula.  Otherwise, you will be getting a refund.

Here's a spreadsheet to show how much your child will need from April 15 until the end of the school year.  Be sure to read the note at the bottom of the spreadsheet regarding the deadline for accepting checks.  This is to ensure that checks are cleared in sufficient time, especially if you will be leaving the islands and Hale Kula.

Thank you for your cooperation!
