Congratulations to Room 8, Mrs. Rivero's class, for having the highest percentage of College Shirt Day participation - 88%!
Congratulations Mrs. Sumida!
Mrs. Sumida, our school librarian was awarded the SLJ Buzz Award, sponsored by Brain Hive. It recognizes K–12 school library programs that are developing innovative new ways to raise awareness of reading by bringing students digital learning activities that increase reading, improve engagement, spark social interaction, and inspire a lifelong love of reading to help kids reach their full potential.

Mrs. Sumida's library program demonstrated a use of digital content to increase reading engagement in digital and print formats and improve literacy and learning. Mrs. Sumida's library program received a $1,000 cash award, plus $1,500 in Brain Hive Bucks® for use during the 2014–15 school year. Mrs. Sumida also received a trip to the 2014 SLJ Leadership Summit in St. Paul, Minnesota, as a guest of Brain Hive, and her winning program will be profiled in the December 2014 issue of School Library Journal.

WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU MRS. SUMIDA! Thank you for nurturing our keiki!
