Aloha Lions!

Can you believe it!  We are on the last school day of the year. Wow, has this year been a crazy one.  I cannot express the sadness we will feel tomorrow to close up the year without students on campus.  For our 5th grade students, I say to you, you will be forever in my heart as the first class I met when I first got here on campus and you have made a spot in my heart forever.  If ever any of you need assistance or help in any way, I will be here for you. 

We have a lot of announcements for everyone and all of them are important. 

  1. 5th-grade students, please stop by the school Thursday to check for any last items put out by teachers, staff, and the office as well as see the sendoff posters made for you by the staff.
  2. The 5th-grade promotion video is available to watch and on our school website tomorrow. 
  3. The awards assembly video will be available to watch on our school website later tonight.

  8. Kalihi Waena will be opening for summer feeding as of June 8th.  We will be having free breakfast and lunch for all children 18 and under all weekdays except holidays.  This is for drive-up or walk-up, grab-and-go only.  No dine-in service.

    2. Lunch 11:30 AM- 12:00 PM
  9. Report cards will be mailed out next week.  Please expect them to be delivered by June 12th

Every year I have a chance to reflect on my fondest and most challenging moments of the year.  I have to say this year has been unique as both events are equally to the extremes.  My most challenging moment was the realization that my Keiki, my ohana, my LIONS were not coming home to campus to finish their learning this year. I know we got work to you all and that many of you learned a lot via the internet, but not nearly enough.  My fondest memory was on the first day of school when I realized that this truly is my school, my home, my ohana, my LIONS, and I had the privilege of loving and caring for all of you while you joined us in learning.  To you all, I say aloha until we meet again, hopefully, sooner rather than later.  

Remember.  We are the Lions.  We are the FUTURE!

With Aloha,

Mr. Larkin
