What a busy time in the preschool and elementary! The entire school has been gearing up for today’s and tomorrow’s parent-student-teacher conferences (December 7 and 8). If you had walked into any class over the past few days, you would have observed students writing reflections for pieces they had chosen for their progress portfolios or students organizing and assembling their portfolios.
Here are some ideas about making the most of your conference with teachers:
Note: You may park in any available space near the elementary school, around the turnaround area, or by the gymnasium, Do not double park. Please do not park in the faculty/staff lot directly across from the Weinberg technology building.
At the conferences, you will be given a memo explaining the logistics for the Christmas program, which will be held on December 14th at 4:30 and 6:30pm. Please read it carefully. If there are further questions about the program, call 441-3801.
A reminder about the Manoa Christmas Parade: The annual parade is this Saturday, December 9, beginning at 6:00pm from Noelani School. The preschoolers and students/families from Kindergarten through Grade 5 who signed up will also walk in the parade. If you’re in the vicinity, stop and wave!
We have a number of lost and found items in the bin, located in the Dining Room. Many of the items are expensive pieces of clothing. Ask your child to check the bin, or you may come in and look for your child’s belongings. We will donate any unclaimed pieces to charity after December 15.
December 7, 1941. The tragedy at Pearl Harbor. The survivors and those who did not survive. We should always remember.
For our children,
