We’ve arrived at year’s end, at the doorstep to a new year, and we continue as before in the face of difficulty. We follow the path set forth by our ancestors to assure educational success for our Nāwahī students. We are fortunate to have the shared motivation and cooperation among our school and home families enabling us to look ahead and ensure success and safety for everyone this school year.
I mea e mau ai ka holomua o nā haumāna, ua kālailai hou ʻia ka papahana o ka hapahā ʻelua a loaʻa nā loli no ka hapahā ʻekolu. Eia ke hōʻike hou nei i ka mākaukau o ke kula no ke kono i ka hoʻi kino ʻana mai o nā haumāna papa mālaaʻo me ka papa 1 i ke kula. Aia ma ka pōkāmana ka papa manawa kikoʻī no nā pule mua ʻelua o ka makahiki kula a no ka papahana kūmau ma hope mai. Inā nō naʻe loaʻa he kānalua i ka hōʻea kino mai o ke keiki i ke kula, e ʻoluʻolu e leka uila koke mai i ke kumu ʻUo Mamo ma mua o ka pau ʻana o kēia pule. He kōkua nui ma ka hoʻolālā me ka hoʻomākaukau ʻana no ke aʻo ʻana i nā haumāna.
To assure continued student progress, we have reviewed and adjusted our second quarter program and made changes for the third quarter. We are prepared to invite all students in kindergarten and grade 1 to return to in-person learning. The schedule for the first two weeks and remainder of the quarter is in the attached powerpoint. If you have concerns about your child returning to campus, please email the ʻUo Mamo teacher before the end of this week 12/25. This will help us plan and prepare for your child’s continued learning.
E hoʻomau ana nā pae papa ʻē aʻe mai ka papa 2 a i ka 12 ma ke kālele keleaʻo. E like nō me ke kau mua, na nā kumu e kono mai i ke kula i nā haumāna nele i ka pūnaewele ʻole, nā haumāna kūlana kīnānā a me nā haumāna kūlanalana i ka puka ʻole ma ka papa.

Distance learning will continue for students in grades 2-12. As we have established in the first semester, students who do not have internet connection, who have special needs and those who are showing signs of failing will be invited by teachers for in-person learning. Select students will be invited to stay until 2:00 for extended in-person learning. Although students have responsibility, it is important that the family is attentive to confirming their engagement in learning. Please communicate with teachers when there are problems or concerns, so the school can help support and problem solve. We are committed to working with you to assure that your child succeeds during each quarter of the school year.
Me ke aloha a me ke kūpaʻa mau,
Na Kumu Kamanā
