Today's Ha'awina and Report...

Aloha Kakou,

Today's ha'awina is as follows:

- At least 1 hour math (homework, on-line lectures, quizzes,, wherever you are at...)
- At least 1 hour of project work (remember we need to be done with phase one by the end of this week.)
- Talk or email Uncle Kala about who Noenoe Silva is.
- Write (by hand or type) a minimum 200 word reflection on the following question: What do you think is the purpose of going to Mauka and Makai labs? I want a word count visible on the top left corner of your first page (and of course your name and date on the right side) and this assignment is due by the end of school on Friday, August 29th, 2008.

About Today:

Today was a good learning experience for our 'ohana who went to ka lo'i kalo o Waipao. There was good work done and Uncle Cal really taught us about why we use raised beds for kalo to grow. As he hypothesized (and probably knows), kalo grown that way tends to grow quicker than kalo submerged in water. It was interesting to learn that Uncle Cal learned this method from our 'ohana in Cook Islands.

Our 'ohana needs to remember what Uncle Cal said that we need learn: how to focus and work hard. Some of us were not as industrious as we could have been because of the desire to talk story with our friends.

We should always be grateful for the instruction we receive from Uncle Cal and others whose intention is to help our growth to be well.

I also learned about how warm water is not good for kalo and causes it to rot rapidly.

Please remember time is flying in this block as it ends on September 19th. Phase one should be finished by Friday and you should be ready for your pre-evaluation.

Aloha to Everyone,
Kumu Feki
