Dear Mililani ‘Ike Families,
Hope everyone had an enjoyable Holiday Season! This year is already moving quickly. We are almost in the month of February with many exciting and important events.
February marks the beginning of African American History Month. We would like to celebrate the many influential leaders that have and are continuing to make significant contributions to our country. This is a terrific opportunity to have learning discussions with your child. Here are a few resources for you to preview and share with your child:
· Education World: www.educationworld.com/a_special/black_history.shtml
· Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH): https://asalh.org
· National Park Service website:
This month we will also be hosting a Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation committee. The visiting committee will be on our campus from February 4 – 7, 2019. During this time, the team will be meeting with teachers and staff, visiting classrooms, and speaking to students and parents. Their goal is to learn about the different learning opportunities happening at our school.
Our fifth grade student council representatives are coordinating a Pedestrian Safety Week from February 19 - 22. These students discussed and researched problems in our state. Through their research, they came to the agreement to focus on pedestrian safety. The students discovered that pedestrian accidents are the second leading cause of death of children.
As an early reminder . . .
Please also save the date for our May Day program! This special day will be held on Friday, May 10, 2019. More information will be sent home with your child in the upcoming months.
We have a full quarter! Please continue to have your child share what he/she is learning in class. Find interesting topics for your child to read about and ask questions. Our goal at Mililani ‘Ike is to champion all students to become critical thinkers!
