MYP Minute

Krista Quint, MYP Coordinator & MS Dean of Academics


Aloha LJA families,


Friday, February 15th is our regular Managebac check-in date. Please see below some quick helpful links that show you how to access your son/daughter's grades and feedback.


Signing in to Managebac
Navigating Managebac
Viewing your Child's Calendar
Viewing your Child's Academic Progress
Switching between Children


Please do set aside some time to sit down with your child and let them explain what they're doing in their classes and what their grades mean. Teachers work hard to help students understand what they're learning and why, as well as the criteria and the expectations for each task they're given. Discussing these things at home will help to support what we're doing in our classes.


Have a wonderful long weekend!

Athletics Survey


Aloha LJA Student-Athletes,


For those of you who participated in the ILH winter sports season, we want to congratulate you on the completion of your season (except varsity boys basketball), and thank you for competing and representing LJA. 


We ask that you please take a few minutes to complete a survey for us evaluating your experience in athletics this past season.  Please click here to access the survey.  This will help us to review any commendations and areas that we excel in, and to address any areas of concerns or needs.
