Aloha, Alaka`i O Kaua`i families,

We are so grateful to our community for the support they show our Alaka`i O Kaua`i learners. On Tuesday, January 14, our learners were visited by the Rotary Club of Poipu Beach and given dictionaries to support their learning and build their vocabulary. This was a very exciting day for all them, and they were all happy to receive these dictionaries from the Rotary Club of Poipu Beach.   

This is the second year in a row that the Rotary Club of Poipu Beach has given dictionaries to our Alaka`i O Kaua`i learners, and we really appreciate such great support! Our Alaka`i O Kaua`i 3rd graders were grateful to receive and begin using their new dictionaries!
