Book Swap and Popcorn sale today was so popular despite the weather. It was great to see kids excited about books. Never have we sold out of popcorn so quickly (sorry about that) next month we will make more. Mark your calendars Thursday, Sept. 17 is the next one.


Join us Tuesday, September 1 at 1:00 p.m. to hear FBI Special Agent Leonard Feula speak about keeping our children safe online.  Find out how to monitor your child's online usage and how to have conversations about safety.  Special Agent Feula welcomes your questions!  Questions?  Email librarian Michelle Colte mcolte@halekula59.k12.hi.us https://goo.gl/iSpbCB


Intramural Volunteers:
If there are any parents who would like to help with Intramural Sports, please contact Mr. Bevacqua in D3. Intramurals take place between 12:30 and 2:00. There is a need for referees, scorekeepers, course marshals, etc.,


We have noticed that many children are moving around campus in the early morning without adult supervision.  If you walk your child to class, please stay with them until the 7:45 AM bell rings.  If you drop off your children, please remind them to wait by the cafeteria where we have school staff to supervise.  We also caution children to walk on the sidewalks and to try stay out of the mud, especially given the rain we've had of late!  We thank you for your continued cooperation.
