No School Monday: In observance of the Prince Kūhiō Day holiday, there is no school on Monday 3/27.
Parent and Community Night this Thursday 3/30: ʻĪao School values our close partnerships with parents and the community, in support of students. This Thursday, 3/30, we are hosting a Parent Information Night and Community Meeting along with the Maui Police Department. Information will be shared about risk factors faced by middle school students, and the School Community Council will be seeking input on the 2023-24 Academic Plan. Our improvement as a school is dependent on your feedback. We will start at 5:30 PM in the Cafeteria and end at 7:00 PM. All parents and community members are invited and refreshments will be provided. Please visit this LINK to view the Parent Night flyer.
2023 Summer School: ʻĪao School will be offering a variety of free Summer Enrichment and Bridge programs, open to current 5th, 6th, and 7th graders and running for the month of July. The purpose of these programs is to offer fun learning opportunities, orient new students to middle school, and make positive connections with peers. Registration information will be shared in April.
2023 Summer Recovery: Current 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students that fail one or more core subjects (Math, ELA, Science & Social Studies) will be required to attend Summer Recovery and may not enroll in Summer Enrichment or Bridge. Students that do not recover core Fs risk losing electives or repeating the grade the following year. Teachers and counselors are communicating with the parents of students at risk of failing and working to support them in passing. Parents are encouraged to reach out as well with questions or concerns. LINK to staff directory.
Home Computers Available through Emergency Connectivity Funds (ECF):
At the end of this school year we will be collecting all school-issued student computers. Next school year computers will only be available for students while at school and we will NOT be issuing computers to all students to bring back and forth between home and school. However, we understand that access to a computer while at home is crucial for students to complete homework and be successful. To support students that don’t have computers at home, we are offering the following opportunity through ECF. Please read on to see if you qualify.
Your child is currently a 6th grade student at ʻĪao School and plans to attend ʻĪao in 7th grade.
Your child does not have full access to a computer at home whenever they need it.
Your family is not receiving discounts on devices under the federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).
If your child qualifies, please print/complete the attached form, “Parental Certification of Student’s Unmet Need While Off Campus”, and return it to their Homeroom/Advisory teacher prior to March 31, 2023. Hard copies of these forms are also being distributed to all 6th graders in Homeroom. The first 100 students that submit this form will trade-in their current school-issued computer and receive a new ECF computer. The ECF computer will be brought back and forth between school and home for the rest of 4th quarter. The ECF computer will not be returned to us at the end of this school year and will be kept at home until the end of 8th grade or upon withdrawal from ʻĪao. Please contact our Technology Coordinator, Nicholas Kawaguchi at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808)727-5222 if you have any questions about this program.
