KMS FLAG FOOTBALL – We want a touchdown!

Cheer on our Ali’i Warrior flag football team as they take the field on 
Saturday, September 29 at 10:00 am at Kalihi Valley District Park (near 
Dole Middle School and Kalihi Police Station).  Be there and support Coach 
Stephens and the team!

In order to have a more positive learning experience at school, all students
are reminded:

  • Start your school day by being on time to class.  Why?  When you are

           late, you disrupt everyone’s learning and you may miss important 
           information that is being shared.  Join in – don’t be left out!

  • Take care of your belongings.  When you leave your backpack, water

            bottle or other personal items unattended, they will be picked up and
            and very possibly not returned to you. If you value something, keep it 
            close to you or put it in your locker.

  • Do your best to be kind, considerate and respectful of one another –

           that will be the first step in having a great school year.

REFLECTION – “Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping them up.”

                                               – Rev. Jesse Jackson, civil rights activist

Please let us know if you prefer not to receive our weekly KMS UPDATE.

alternate email address, please advise us.
