8th Grade Ho'ike - Thursday, March 7 - 5-6:30 p.m. STEAM Learning Center - 2nd Floor 

Our teachers are committed to helping prepare students for the 21st century world and workplace and this is what our 8th Grade Hoʻike is all about -- helping students develop the tools to succeed.

These tools can be defined as “The Cs” – collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and compromise! 

Please join us for a casual stroll through upstairs classrooms in the new STEAM Learning Center to check out exhibits and mini-presentations by 23 student teams.  There will be light refreshments and if its anything like last year, it will be an inspiring celebration of student learning! 

All 8th grade students are encouraged to remain at school after dismissal that day.  They will be setting up their projects, eating an early dinner, and practicing presentations.  If students are unable to stay after school, please plan to have them arrive back at school no later than 4:45 p.m.  

Families make an important contribution to student learning.  We would like each student to have at least one adult family member in attendance and can’t wait to see you there!

Parking:  The back entry gate will be open.  Itʻs OK to park near the STEAM Learning Center but please do not drive or park on the field.  It is OK to park on the grass fronting Mala’ai garden, and along the edge of the entry drive and also in the parking lot near College & Career Center.  We recommend dressing warm or bringing a wrap/jacket. 



Student-Led Transition Night - All families with incoming 6th graders invited!  

Please RSVP and all who do so will be eligible for door prizes including clear water bottles and clear backpacks.
