Aloha Waimalu Ohana,
I hope you had a restful and exciting spring recess. We are down the home stretch of the 2017-18 school year. The month of April will be a very busy month for all of us as we start to prepare to close out the year.
All students in grades 3-6 will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA). This is our “high stakes” test that the state and federal government use to measure our students’ proficiency in reading and math. Our teachers and students have been working hard to be ready for the “big day.” You can also help us at home by making sure that your children get to bed early the night before, come to school on time, and have a good breakfast on the morning of their assessment.
Our third and fifth graders will be taking their assessments on April 19, 24, 26, and May 2. Our fourth and sixth graders will be assessed on April 17,18, 25, and May 1.
If you have any concerns that you would like to discuss with me, please feel free to stop by. If I am not available, our school secretary Ms. Kacie Kurisu will be happy to schedule an appointment for you.
Glen Iwamoto, Principal
