We had some issues with the A/C last Thursday and Friday. We are hoping it will be fixed for this week, but if the A/C is out, we will find a shady place to learn outside. Please come prepared with water and sun protection this week as we may be spending more time outside.
SCHOOL IS CLOSED WEDNESDAY, 9/12. However, students will be sent home with Thursday's virtual for Social Studies, Polynesian Triangle Webquest. If you want to get ahead (and have less work for later!), please work on it when you can. We will also have Spelling Test 3 on Friday so study for that. Last, PowerSchool is updated so you can check your grades and any missing work there. Your login info is on your slip. Thanks, stay safe!
In class Wednesday we handed out two forms for parents:
We also passed out planners. Students need to write their virtual assignments each morning (in as few words as possible) and check off assignments as they finish. This will help keep students focused and on top of any missing assignments. Please start today.
This Wednesday, we will take our school vans to Maalaea Harbor for the voyaging canoe field trip. Drop off and pick up will remain the same: 12 and 2:30 at the middle school. Bring water, snack, and sun protection. You do not need your backpack. Please pay for the field trip (at the front desk) and return your waivers (to the teachers) by today! If we do not have your waiver (and your emergency packet), you will not be allowed to join this field trip.
Virtual is the same as last Wed, Thur, Fri but please read it carefully. The most important assignments are the iReady reading and math tests. These MUST be completed by the end of the week. Students cannot get any help and will need a quiet place to work on a computer, with paper and a pencil, for up to an hour or so. Students should finish 1 test pr day in one sitting.
If you finished all the virtual from last week, read your book, finish your spelling handout and perfect your spelling, and try to learn something new on your own! Email us about what you learned!
Plan on meeting everyday 12:00 - 2:30 at the middle school building until something changes. We will keep you posted with any information that we receive. Thank you all for being so patient. Lastly, families, if you have any talents or skills (particularly with classroom design) you'd like to share with the class, please reach out to us! We're working on starting a project and need all the help we can get!
Because of Hurricane Lane, school will be cancelled Wednesday, 8/22. Virtual is posted for the rest of the week; feel free to work on it if you can but please stay home and stay safe! Email us if you have any questions.
On Wednesday, August 29th, we will be going in the vans to a field trip to Maalaea Harbor to tour the Mo’okiha o Pi’ilani wa’a. All students must have turned in their emergency packets. We will also send home a waiver for parents to sign. The price is $5 each and should be paid to the front desk (the other side of the laundromat) due 8/25. If you have any questions, please email Ms. Bridget.
We will also begin traveling in the vans to PE this week so please make sure your emergency packet is turned in and complete.
Virtual will now be posted daily more often. Please check GClass every morning for assignments. We will be flexible with due dates but please try to work before in-class time each day. We will meet at the old building on Lipoa from 12 to 2:30 for the rest of the month.
Be sure you have your virtual work and packets from last week!
Beginning Monday, August 20, 4th Grade will meet daily from 12:00 - 2:30 at the 6th grade building.
Pick-up and Drop-off will continue taking place along the side of the building.
Welcome to our 4th Grade ‘Ohana! Weebly is a great way for parents to stay informed. We will use Google Classroom (GClass) for virtual assignments. Students, please use your KCS email (see below) to add yourself to the class using the code below.
Class code: 626g3vx
Complete the assignments there. Virtual should take about two hours per day for the next two weeks. Check each morning for specific due dates. We are available via email during normal school hours so it is best to do virtual before afternoon classes.

Students, we will see you tomorrow in the previous KCS 6th grade building at 12:00. Please bring a snack, water, a journal, pencils, and one set of art supplies (like colored pencils). Eat lunch before you come in.
Here is what is posted on the GClass for this week’s virtual assignments. After this week, all virtual assignments will be posted on Gclass only.
Welcome to your first week of virtual! Virtual assignments are a wonderful way for you to become fluent in technology and self-directed learning, which are both important 21st Century Skills! Due dates are posted in parentheses below. Most assignments should be completed before afternoon classes but we understand that this is a new way of learning so work at your own pace.
Next week you will only come to school on Tuesday and Wednesday. The schedule is:
Tuesday: Exhibition. Students arrive by 9 am for set-up. Families are welcome at 10 until 11:30 to visit and learn about all the amazing things we worked so hard on and learned about this year. Students are dismissed at 11:30 after clean up is finished.
Wednesday: Field Day. All families are invited to come play with us at Waipuilani (Sunset) Park up the street from the school from 9 am to 11 am. Students are dismissed at 11 am. I hope you all have an amazing summer and use your summer journals to keep your memories! I have loved teaching you this year.
Today you have 4 assignments.
This is the last week of learning via virtual assignments. I know that your independence and self-direction skills have strengthened. I have loved helping you with virtual this year. I think you are all so brilliant because you can do all this on your own! Keep working hard and trusting yourself! Thanks for a great virtual year!
On Friday I gave you a Summer Journal. Please think of this as a fun treat and not summer homework. Do whatever you want with it but I promise if you fill it with memories, you will enjoy it so much in the future! Writing down goals is also a good way to make them come true! BRING this journal everyday this week!
Homework this week: Perfect your Historic Site building (to bring to Exhibition!) and improve your Exhibition station.
Today you have 4 assignments.
