Lower School Principal Message

Parents have been asking for parenting resources and book recommendations. There are quite a few that are really popular. These books are books that either parents have listed as their favorites or that we have used in book clubs:

  • How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haimes
  • Positive Parenting by Rebecca Eanes
  • Scream Free Parenting by Hal Runkel
  • Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids by Dr. Laura Markham

 

OPEN HOUSE
Thank you for recommending our kindergarten program to friends! The Kinder Breakfast was a success! We have our Open House approaching in November for preschool – high school and we need your help in spreading the word of this event. Please forward this RSVP link on our website to interested families!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IB!
Today is the International Baccalaureate's 50th birthday! We are giving the students a special gluten free treat in celebration!

 

HALLOWEEN
All parents are welcome to join us in the loop at 9:15 for the annual Halloween parade on the 31st. All classes will parade around the loop and be given a treat from the PFA. Remember candy should not be brought to school so remember to keep the trick-or-treat goodies at home!

 

WORKSHOPS  
On the 31st from 8:00 – 9:00, we will have two parent workshops for those waiting for the 9:15 Halloween parade start. One session will be on MAP and understanding your child's information sheet and the other will be on video games and screen time. If you have time, please join us all together in the Wang for coffee; stay green and bring your own mug!

 

LUNCH SIGN-UPS

Have you ordered lunch for next month? Sign-up for lunch here.

 

GIRLS' SOCCER PROGRAM

Supplemental practice/tryout happens this Saturday. Click here for more soccer information.

 

BLOOD DRIVE
The LJA blood drive will take place on Nov. 8th from 8:00 – 2:30pm. Please consider parking your car on this day and donating blood. We were recently awarded the highest student participation in a school in the state of Hawaii; let's keep supporting our community by a successful drive!

 

MAP TESTING DATA
All MAP scores should be uploaded into ManageBac by the end of the day on Friday. Once you log in, click on Reports on the left hand column. The MAP tests are formatives tests, not summative. This means the tests are one way we measure student knowledge as well as use them to look for patterns in our delivery of the subject area. An information session will be held on the MAP tests prior to the Halloween parade on October 31st.

 

HOMECOMING ASSEMBLY
November 2nd is our Homecoming Assembly starting at 1:30pm in the gym, followed by a fun game of flag football between the junior and seniors. Students are encouraged to dress in white to support the seniors and blue to support the juniors. Parents in attendance are welcome to stand above the bleachers on the second floor.
