LAHAINA - Wow! Time's flying. I want to thank our LIS Wrestling Club coach, Nathan Williams, and the LIS staff who are active in providing a competitive extramural sport for our middle level students. LIS ended this year's wrestling season, overall, in second place in the Maui District. Hooray to all of our wrestlers! Good job!
The LIS Volleyball Club has been active all year long thanks to paraprofessional Charmaine Nuesca-Ganer. Our annual Volleyball Tournament is scheduled for April 4-5. Exciting!
On Feb. 22 at 6:30 p.m., there will be a Middle School Massed Band Concert at the Maui High School Gym. Please attend if you can. Experience a gym full of middle school students performing selections of their band teachers as one mass band. Participating schools are Iao, Kalama, LIS, Lokelani, Maui Waena and Lanai High & Middle School. It is awesome. See you there!
Nominations for our Honors Program have been received, and data for all nominees is currently being placed on the rating matrices. The process of selection will be completed, and parents will be notified whether or not their child(ren) was selected in April. Good luck to all the nominees!
Parents and guardians of students who have Ms. Mau for sixth grade Math and Study Skills, please be aware that Ms. Mau has decided to remain with her family on the Mainland for the remainder of this school year. Adjustments are being made. Changes took effect Monday, Feb. 18, to accommodate her Honors Math students. Letters to affected students will have been sent home by the time this message is published. If you did not receive a letter, please ask your child about it. The letter was hand carried home last week. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
