Solomon Elementary will be hosting the Aloha Aina 3R's Recycling Program to bring waste awareness and action to our campus. This program empowers students to engage and educate the school community about the 3R's: REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE. Please click on the header to see how you can help. Bring in your recyclables on Saturday, November 17, 2018 between the hours of 9:00 am and 12:00 pm. Items will only be accepted on the day of the event. We are looking forward to seeing our community all pitch in to help our school and the environment!
The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is encouraging students and staff to join a national movement for inclusive, nurturing learning for all. Wednesday, October 24, 2018 is designated as Unity Day and everyone is encouraged to wear orange as a simple statement of support for Kindness, Acceptance, and Aloha in our school communities.
In addition, to support this positive movement, HIDOE will be distributing orange bands with the message, "Unite for KINDNESS, ACCEPTANCE, and ALOHA" for our students.
We have had a couple of cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth disease within our school community. It is a common childhood disease that can be prevented and contained with hand washing and early detection. Please check your child's entire body and extremities daily. If you see red spots or bumps around the mouth hands and/or feet, take your child to the doctor for confirmation. Please alert the school if your child has this infectious disease so that we may keep our community healthy. Furthermore, continue to practice hand washing as we approach the cold and flu season. Thank you!
Kudos to the parents/guardians of Solomon Elementary School for teaching their children to eat fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet. Cafeteria staff have remarked that our students are eating a lot of the salads and fruits served as part of the school lunch program. This is great news. Keep up the great work in promoting healthy eating and physical activity as part of a child's total wellness.
