Dear Mililani Waena Families:


We hope you had an enjoyable Spring Break and were able to re-energize for the 4th quarter.  As we get back to work, let’s finish this year on a strong note. We still have much to accomplishand as always, your involvement is needed.


Once again will be involved in testing and assessing your child’s academic growth. Students have been working diligently to obtain knowledge this year. If your child is in grades 3 – 5, they will take the SBA (Smarter Balanced Assessment).You can help your student make the most of our Spring Testing Window by asking questions about their studies, setting an early bedtime, and encouraging plenty of exercise and fresh air. Even as we turn more to technology, it is paramount that children have time to explore and play outside, to exercise their bodies, and to learn to solve real world problems. Limiting video game and TV time is also a great help to a "testing frame of mind". We extend our thanks in advance for the help you can give us.


Please feel free to contact me with your questions, concerns, or ideas.  Thank you for your constant support and trust in Mililani Waena Elementary.
