Aloha and welcome to F102's class blog! I am so excited to be here at Waikoloa School. More importantly, I am so LUCKY to be your child’s 2nd-grade teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures. I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for us. Please subscribe to our blog to ensure you won't miss out on the excitement and latest events in F-102!
Mahalo, Ms. Barsetti
Report cards will go home in the Thursday envelopes. I will also be sending their quarter two portfolios. Take a look at all the work they’ve done! If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. ~Ms. Barsetti
Yesterday, the students planned and sketched their bird feeder prototypes before building them! They had an exciting time with this process.
Mahalo for attending parent-teacher conferences. We had a great turnout! Also, take a look at the 18-19 Halloween album that I just uploaded!
Tomorrow, the students are allowed to wear their Halloween costumes. However, they cannot wear masks or bring weapons. I will present a Mystery Science lesson on the human skeleton and the students will complete an art project aligned to it! Students who do not celebrate Halloween will be provided an alternative learning activity.
Reminder for Conferences the Week of Oct. 29th
Conferences are next week. Students will be dismissed at 1:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, the students will be dismissed at 12:00pm.

Parent-Teacher Conferences and Canoe Cards
Please look in your child's Thursday envelope for the note regarding your child's conference date and time. If you are unable to attend, please call me to reschedule as soon as possible.
In the Thursday envelope, you will also find our Canoe Cards. If you would like to help our school raise more money for air conditioning, please sell as many as possible. Follow the information on the envelope. If you are unable to sell the cards, please return the envelope with all 10 cards.
