To say that it's been so very interesting, does not suffice or encompass the rise to the many challenges to make SY20-21 a learning success for na haumana and kumu. EO, ke ora, as we segue to Spring Break, March 15-19, 2021. In times of change and reinvention, simple wisdom of Na Po'e Kahiko, look back from where we came from, look ahead at the horizon, the journey.
Three quarters have quickly slipped through the recovery hands of C19. We've adapted to maintain school according to health and safety standards and are realizing a renewed Eschool due to circumstances. Your child needs to be commended for their integral help to get us through these interesting times and new decade.
Quarter 4 will include end of the year SBAC testing in ELA and Math. Be sure to visit alohahsap.org for student & families to be aware of how to maneuver on the testing page, and see samples of ELA and math assessment questions. A complex "virtual" Science Showcase and on-campus Curriculum Fair will culminate our 20-21SY.
