Happy October Pūʻōhala Families & Students,
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the first quarter of our school year 2020-2021 and remind all of us to continue to be resilient, to adapt and strive for positive outcomes, in adverse situations. I also want to recognize your resourcefulness in finding imaginative and skillful ways to succeed in this new and challenging journey to learn through non-traditional and unfamiliar methods. Please make time to highlight your familyʻs and students' triumphs, to reflect upon the big and small accomplishments for overcoming technological complications, creative ways to provide comfortable learning environments in your homes, families coming together to provide supervision and care for our students, and for giving them the best opportunity to learn. Mahalo nui loa.
As we move forward in quarter 2, I am providing you with a little information regarding Pūʻōhalaʻs plan to transition students back onto campus for learning in a safe manner.
There will be more information and details released weekly as our staff continues to train and practice our Pūʻōhala safety guidelines leading up to November 23, 2020.
When we work together, I know we can accomplish great things and Pūʻōhala School values the benefits of working together to forge lasting relationships for our flourishing community.
Mission: Pūʻōhala School empowers students by developing strong foundations of ʻike kupuna, positive relationships, and lifelong learning.
As we prepare to return to learn, these are some ways that you can do daily wellness checks at home. Click on the button below for a printable PDF version.

The Community Works in 96744 youth council created a Fun & FREE family boardgame: “Right Way Out”. The game will teach your children about making healthy choices and will serve as a great conversation starter about issues around underage drinking and substance use. If you are interested in having a FREE boardgame sent to your family, please send a dm to @cwc_96744 or email email@example.com. Boardgames are limited to the first 50 families so hurry and reserve yours now!
Side note: We feel this game will be most appropriate for grades 5 and up but that is up to the parents’ discretion.
