Erosion & Deposition, Honoring the Last Queen of Hawaii

Erosion & Deposition

By Miss Brittney Guro, 6A Science & Language Art Teacher

The sixth graders would like to say thank you to the Tamashiro family for donating the Rocks, Minerals & Gems” book for their research, along with all the other families who donated books to the classroom library.  We appreciate your generosity and support!

Honoring the Last Queen of Hawaii

By Mrs. Kathy Johnson, 1A Teacher

A week later,  grades 1-3 visited the Queen Lili’uokalani statue at the State Capitol on a field trip and saw her palace from afar.  What a treat it was for the first graders to further their connection to such a historical person of our past!
