Aloha Families — Mahalo for supporting your children in their home learning environments.  Whew…we are making to the last week of April.  We know it’s been a long stay at home order…Thank you for doing your part.  Let’s continue to keep our community safe.  In addition to the academic learning our teachers are providing, we are sure that you are also doing the curriculum or lessons of the home.  Teaching responsibilities such as how to do laundry, wash dishes, house cleaning, keeping the rooms tidy, cooking, feeding the animals and pets, etc…VERY IMPORTANT!   If you would like to send us a picture of the lesson from home, we would be glad to post them on our Facebook page.  Just email your child’s teacher along with a picture, and we will post it!

So back to our New information and friendly reminders…
