Dear Awbrey Park Families,

How are you connected to the world?  Come to our Community Cultural Night on Thursday, January 31 from 5-7 pm and find out how your children are connected.  Each student has come up with their own project, “I am From.”  This is where students have written poems with pictures and graphics telling about their past and how they are connected with others.  These projects show how students relate to the world around them by showcasing their background and family culture.  Students build cultural awareness, self esteem, and spread knowledge about ones’ background. Students get to celebrate their similarities and differences with others.  They are also photographed showing an important line from their poem.  The students lines are awesome such as: “I am from chocolate;”  “I am from never giving up;” “I am from sushi and legos.”
It will be a night of food, music, dance, photographs, and student projects.  We will have a free chili feed for all families.  Come anytime for a great experience.  We have professional photographers who are taking free optional family portraits.  We will give one copy to the family and another will adorn our walls to continue the tradition we started years ago.  Even when a family moves on because their child is going to 6th grade, they are still part of community in spirit and in photographs on our walls. 
Musical and dance entertainment will be provided
5:15–Community Performers
5:40–Kinder and 1st Graders

5:45–2nd and 3rd Graders

6:00–Haluu Hula O Na Pua O Hawii Nei

The end of the first semester is on January 31.  There is no school on February 1 because it is a grading day.  Report cards will go home with students on February 11 in the Monday Mailer.  If you don’t get one, please contact our office.
Please drive safely when picking up and dropping kids in the back of the school.  Cars should go at 5 mph or less.  Our kids are awesome and we want to keep them safe.  I know many families may be in a hurry to get to work or appointments.  Please drive safely.
PTO is on Monday, February 4.  We are planning our Craft Night which is on February 12.  Also upcoming is Family Funk Night which will be a family dance on March 1.
