5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Tuesday at the Kaua‘i War
Memorial Convention Hall
A group of teachers and students from Kapa‘a Elementary, Middle and High schools are interested in learning more about Kaua‘i’s history, economy, culture and social fiber through the experiences and perspectives of its residents. The “Talk Story” project is sponsored by the Department of Education, Kaua’i District and the Japanese American National Museum with a planning grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Brief stories will be collected to create a pool of interviews for the implementation stage of the project, which will develop oral history-based curriculum for use in classrooms.
8 a.m. to noon tomorrow
at the Easter Seals Center
Easter Seals Hawai’i, Kaua‘i Early Intervention Program, provides therapeutic and developmental services to children from birth to three and support to their families.
The sale will be from 8 a.m. to noon tomorrow at the Easter Seals Center at 3115 Akahi St. in Lihue, between Big Save and Wal-Mart.
Bring almost anything in clean, good condition n clothes, household items or toys. This is a fundraiser for Kaua’i programming only. Drop donations off at the Easter Seals office or for larger items call for pick up. Call Eileen or Raquel 245-7141 with questions.
Kaua‘i High School
Here is an opportunity for students, families, teachers, administrators, faculty and staff to mingle and get to know one another.
It begins in the gym for a welcome and brief presentation. Students class schedules will be available for pick-up. To alleviate waiting in line for your child’s class schedule, ask your child for a copy beforehand and bring it with you.
Then the festivities continue in the relaxed, casual atmosphere in the library courtyard with a light dinner made possible by the PAIRS-PTSA and Mr. Michael Ng, the cafeteria manager and his staff.
Next parents and guardians will attend their student’s class schedule. When the bell rings, they have five minutes to reach their teen’s first period class. Parents will spend approximately 15 minutes meeting teachers — learning what they’ll be studying, class expectations, how they’ll be graded, what some of their projects will be, and how to stay in contact. When the next bell rings, it’s 5 minutes to their second period class, and this will continue until parents have visited all six of their child’s classes.
For more information call the Parent-Community Networking Center on campus at 274-3176 or 274-3173 x 114.
