MAHALO NUI LOA!
It’s hard to believe that we are
already in our sixth month of
school & that our enrollment
has increased to 18! Our
success is largely due to you &
your willingness to be
enthusiastically involved with
your child’s school.
We would like to thank you for
your incredible support during
our recent move from our Hawi
campus to Waimea. We could
not have done it without your
help!! Kau’i’s Grandpa, Ken,

ADDISON

brought a trailer and 2 strong
friends (Kaleo Kaae & Steve
Brenner), to carry all our heavy
furniture to Waimea. They
loaded everything else into
Jasmine Schuester, Amy
Kitendaugh & MJ Allison’s
vehicles to bring to Waimea &
then carried what we weren’t
bringing to the storeroom. Eric
Olsen & Ryan Kitendaugh
carried the refrigerator, file
cabinets & rugs, loaded up with
playground equipment & the
rest of the stuff & took it to
Waimea.

ZOEY

On the Waimea side, Summer &
Robyn assisted with unloading
all the cars, trucks & trailers. On
Saturday, Estri Doe cleaned the
Hawi campus, while Haunanai
Tamashiro, Rebekah & Henry
Evergreen helped clean & prep
the classrooms for all the new
materials.
We are happy that four of our
students from Kohala have
joined us in Waimea. Andrew,

DAD’S NIGHT - APRIL 24TH
Dad’s Night is one of the
children’s favorite school
events. The children enjoy
showing Dads their favorite
work at school, as well as
serving & sharing fruit salad
they will prepare.
Dads are invited to come to
school with their child anytime
between 5:00 & 7:00 PM & stay
as long as they want. Don’t
worry Dad, it is very casual &
relaxed & lots of fun for
everyone. We are asking each
child to bring at least 2 pieces
of fruit to school on
Wednesday, April 23rd to add to
the fruit salad they will be
making for Dad’s Night. We will
have a sign up sheet available
at pick up and drop off for the
Dad’s night fruit you will be
bringing. Thank you so much
for your help. Please make sure
to pick up your child by 4:00 PM
on Thursday so that teachers
can get the classroom ready
for this special evening.

CAR SEAT INSPECTION

SUMMER SCHOOL

Did you know that 3 out of 4 car
seats are installed incorrectly?
Correctly used child safety
seats can reduce the risk of
death by as much as 71%.

We are making summer plans &
need to know how many
students are interested in
attending summer school,
along with your session
preference. The six weeks of
Summer Fun will start in June
and run through July with half
and full day programs
available. Please look for the
survey that will be emailed by
next week.

On Saturday, March 29th from
9:00 AM - Noon there will be a
free car seat inspection at the
Waikoloa Community Church
(68-3625 Paniolo Ave.,
Waikoloa). Visit
www.bigislandmops.com/
events for more information
and to make an appointment.
All appointments will be
entered to win a prize
giveaway! Hurry, appointments
are limited! Drive-ups also
welcomed.

FALL REGISTRATION
Please indicate (on the same
survey as Summer School) if
your child will be returning in
August for the 2014-2015 school
year. Your prompt reply will
help us plan our program to
better serve you & your child.

Help Make Preschool A Reality For All Keiki
An amendment is being
proposed to Article X, Section 1,
of the Hawaii State Constitution
to permit the appropriation of
public funds for private early
childhood education programs.
The amendment on this
November’s ballot is critical to
Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s push for
universal preschool. He has said
that combination of public
preschools, private preschools and
state-funded slots in private schools
is likely needed to serve all of the
state’s 17,200 4-year-olds.
The state Constitution prohibits
public funds from being spent to
support or benefit private
educational institutions. The

INSECTS & SPRING
will be the new unit of
study this month.

amendment, if passed, would allow
the state to contract with private
providers to build capacity.
Join the campaign! Tell at least 3
relatives, friends or colleagues to
ask their legislator to fund
preschool opportunities for all 4year-olds.

DID YOU KNOW?
- 85% of a child’s brain development
happens before they’re 5 years old?
- Kids who attend preschool are more
likely to graduate from high school &
attend college?
- Investing in young children stimulates
the state’s economy now & in the
future?
- Hawaii is 1 of only 11 states
without state-funded preschool?
- Nearly half of Hawaii’s
kindergarteners didn’t attend any
form of preschool?

- Please remember to
send utensils with your
child if needed.
- Please send fruit for
d e s s e r t in s t e a d o f
cookies or sugary
treats.
- Teachers will let you
know if your child
doesn’t have enough
food OR will send home
uneaten food if there’s
too much.
