Robotics State Champions!
by Mr. Haiola
I want to thank our kids for the hard work and dedication throughout the season coming in everyday, before and afterschool. All through the event, our kids showed class towards all their competitors guiding them in every way to score points. As dominant as our kids were, they remained humble, yet very proud of what they had accomplished.
To our Haleiwa staff and community, this is for you. Congratulations, Haleiwa Cane Fires!!!! Up next, The 2022 Vex World Championships in Dallas, Texas...Woohoo!!!!

Kindergarten: Butterflies and Lettuce
by Ms. Brooks
by Ms. Mori
This week in Ms. Mori’s class students have been harvesting their lettuce they have been growing in their garden bed. They have tried out different techniques of harvesting such as breaking it off with their hands and cutting it with their scissors. Everyone loves cutting the lettuce with their scissors. They even got to taste their harvest in class. Now that we have harvested our lettuce we can’t wait for our carrots and green beans to be ready for harvest!

Literacy Corner: Vocabulary Fun Spring Break Family Activities
Our school is part of a 4 year Comprehensive Literacy State Development Grant and our focus this year has been to increase our vocabulary words and comprehension. For our parent activity, we would like to invite all of our families to participate in an engaging review during Spring Break.
We have created a Vocabulary Fun Spring break folder for each of our students. Please make sure to look for them in your child's backpack.
The folders include:
- parent brochure with vocabulary tips
- vocabulary words for the grade levels (these are the words classes have been working on this year)
- a vocabulary choice board with explanation of some of the activities
- additional pages to help families complete items on the choice board.
The goal is for students to work on their vocabulary words during the break so they can continue to practice. Parents, please email us pictures of your family doing 2 or more activities and you will be entered into a prize drawing. The activities are meant to be fun and educational- we hope you decide to participate with us!
Dental Screening and Sealant Event Coming to Haleʻiwa
by Nurse Connie
Tooth decay and cavities remain the number 1 disease in childhood. I am happy to announce that your child’s school will be offering dental screenings and dental sealants to all 2nd grade students whose parents or guardians would like for them to participate. This event will be held on Tuesday, March 29, 2022. Please look out for the consent forms sent from school and please check yes.
Since this pandemic created less access to dental care, Hawaii Keiki’s school based oral health screening program aims to bridge the gap in the prevention of tooth decay in children. Dental sealants can be applied to back teeth (molars) as long as they are healthy so they can be protected from cavities. Preventing tooth decay in children improves overall health and helps children achieve academic success.
