Therefore, for the second quarter or until funding runs out, all Kanoelani families (and families statewide) can pick up FREE meals daily for each school-aged student (Pre-School to 12th grade).

Good evening Kanoelani Families. This is VP Tominaga and I have two reminders for you tonight.

First reminder is to complete the Parent Teacher conference survey by 10/2/20. You can find the survey on our school website and also through the Seesaw account. Filling out the survey will help us to schedule your teacher conference on a preferred date. Thank you parents for your assistance with filling out the survey by tomorrow.

Second reminder is for Grades 1-6, please come and pick up school supplies tomorrow from 8:00-3:00 and Saturday 8:00-noon. Parent we need your help to pick up supplies since we will be continuing to learn from home mode until the end of 2nd quarter.

As quarter one comes to an end tomorrow October 2nd, we want to wish everyone a safe and fun Fall break! The second quarter will start on October 12th. Please continue to practice Unity, Patience, and Serenity. Thank you and goodnight.
