4th Quarter Student Tutoring Sign up here. We learned in Quarter 3 that offering tutoring to our struggling students proved to be invaluable. For this reason, in quarter 4, we are extending the tutoring opportunity to any students who want or need it.
This PM tutoring schedule is from 12:25 PM- 2:00 PM. Tutoring will run from April 13th through May 21st, Tuesdays through Fridays on student’s in-person instructional days. School will continue to end at 11:55 daily. Tutoring will not be offered on Mondays, as Mondays are designated as teacher meeting days. If you are interested in having your child(ren) participate in tutoring, please either fill out the hard copy flyer, which will be coming home with your child, or fill out the electronic form at the top.
Important note, we will be discontinuing our noon bus routes during this time. Students who ride the bus will be leaving school on Mondays after school at 11:55 (as they do now) but on Tuesdays through Fridays, the first round of busses (Hanamaulu, Lihue) will depart at 2:00 PM. The second round of busses (Koloa, Poipu and Lawai) will leave when those busses return, at approximately 2:35 PM.
If your child already has a bus application completed for the year, you will not need to reapply for transportation.

Panorama Survey Aloha Parents and Guardians, Once again, we would like to ask your child to participate in the Panorama SEL Survey. As you recall, students participated in the survey in September 2020. By participating in this survey again, we will be able to see how student's views may have changed/improved/declined as we near the end of this very challenging school year.
The SEL survey window begins on March 22 and ends on April 16, 2021, but CKMS students will take the survey sometime between the week of March 29-April 16, 2021. Students MUST complete the survey in one sitting.
If you do not want your child to participate, please contact Marcia Montayre, at 808-241-3200 ext. 237.
