Hale`iwa ❤️ Maui
Thank you to everyone in our Hale`iwa School Community who donated to our Hale`iwa ❤️ Maui fundraising campaign. Our goal was $1000.00 by collecting $5.00 from each family and staff member. As of today, we have collected $3000.00 – TRIPLE of what our original goal was. This could not have been possible without the generosity of so many of you. Not only did we collect three times what we had hoped for, but we also had a 90% participation rate among families and staff. It is so wonderful to see what we are able to accomplish when we come together for a common cause. As mentioned, a donation from the Hale`iwa School Community will be made to the Hawaii Public Schools Foundation, which will ensure that 100% of donations will go directly to helping with the recovery efforts for our Maui public schools. We hope that our small contribution can bring some relief to our friends and families on Maui.

All About `Ulu
They are "growing" a lot from this training ... in their teaching practices and also emotionally. They will be sharing their new knowledge with their students throughout the year.

Our Quarter 1 Reading Challenge:
Friendly reminders about contraband items:
This is a friendly reminder that cell phones are NOT allowed in school. If your child brings a cell phone to school please remind them to keep it in their bags and out of sight. Students are NOT allowed to use their cell phones during the school day. If they need to call a parent, they should ask their teacher or a school adult to use a school phone. Another contraband item is valuable jewelry. Students should not wear jewelry (gold chains, Hawaiian bracelets, etc) that is of high monetary or sentimental value. Cell phones and valuable jewelry cannot be “protected” by the school from loss or theft so it is best to keep these items at home.
