Third Grade: Is TV Good To Watch?

Our third graders have started turning our 5-sentence paragraphs into 5-paragraph essays!

Fourth Grade: Hula Performance
by Ms. Yonekura
The very special part of this event is that 41 other 4th Graders around the island of Hawaiʻi also simultaneously danced this song together! The 4th Graders practiced daily in school, and at home. Each student was so excited to be part of this special event. With the help of Kumu Kuʻuipo we incorporated Hawaiian Cultural practices and created our own Kiheiʻs with our own Ohekapala artwork. Each studentʻs designed their own kiheiʻs with our school colorʻs, which purple was also a favorite color of the Queen.
This hula performance helped us learn many new skills, and most importantly, we learned the importance of helping each other, dancing together, and creating our sense of ʻOhana amongst our students, families, and staff. Very awesome job 4th Graders! You represented our school, community, and your families well. Mahalo Nui Loa for all that you do.

Sixth Grade: Recycling
by Robert Turley
Our sixth grade robotics team at Haleiwa Elementary is hoping to gather HI5 recycling to fund our trip to the VEX Robotics World Championships in Dallas, Texas. There are six of us on the sixth grade robotics team, and there are many expenses to cover during our travels such as the flight to Texas, the hotel payment, and the competition itself.
All contributions would be a big help. But you won’t just be helping our team, you will also be helping the planet by recycling your waste instead of throwing it away and ending up in landfills or oceans. Collectively, out of the 254 million tons of trash Americans can produce in one year, we recycle about 34.3 percent of it.
Every can or bottle is worth one nickel and anything will help.
We have worked hard to get to the Robotics World Championships in Dallas, Texas. So we want it to be worth it every step of the way.
If you can donate bottles to us, we will be very grateful. So please, consider donating to Haleiwa Elementary School Robotics Team. All the proceeds would go to the robotics team. Any donation will cover some of our expenses. We hope to have our entire robotics team travel to Dallas, Texas. Our parents will appreciate the support to help us go to the championship in Dallas, Texas. It would be very nice if you could donate to us. Not only are you helping us, but you're saving this planet. Each can in the ocean or on land is very harmful for the environment and sea creatures.
Our robotics season has come so far this year and has been very rewarding. It would be even more rewarding if you partner with us by donating to help us. MAHALO!
