Pearl Harbor Kai recognizes that homework is an integral part of the school curriculum and supports the General Learner Outcomes of students becoming Self-Directed Learners, Community Contributors, Complex Thinkers, Quality Producers, Effective Communicators and Effective and Ethical Users of Technology. We believe that the purpose of homework is to help students establish a sense of responsibility, become more independent learners, and reinforce skills.
The amount of time spent on homework will increase through the grade levels and maybe assigned on a daily basis. As an AVID school, we ask that you please review and sign the school planner daily. At the beginning of the school year, classroom teachers distribute their specific classroom assignment policies.
If a child is absent from school for three (3) or more consecutive days, you may request for homework by calling the school office. A 24-hour notice is needed for teachers when a homework request is made. You may pick up the homework at the front office after 2:30 pm of the day following your request.
All elementary schools in the State of Hawaii implement a Standards-Based Report Card. The Status Report given at the end of each quarter provides a standards-based grade of the student's achievements for each quarter. The Status Report given for the year provides a standards-based grade of the student's achievement for the year.
Parent-Teacher and/or Student-Led conferences are scheduled in October. This is a time for sharing of goals and plans of action for each student. Parents are also encouraged to contact their child's teacher if there is a question or concern (808-421-4245).
