The Achieve 3000 program contains 1000+ current events articles. Each article is customized to match
your child’s reading level and comes with a variety of fun activities to improve your child’s
comprehension, vocabulary and writing skills. As his/her reading level improves, Achieve 3000 will
increase the level of difficulty so he/she remains challenged and interested.

   5. Have your child go back to the article to find the answer before responding to each question; We
       are encouraging each child to get at least 85% correct on his/her first try;
   6. Answer the thought question;
   7. Vote in the poll;
   8. Explore other Kidbiz/Teenbiz features, including other articles, the Stock Market game, puzzles,

Every child in grades 2 through 6 uses this program in his/her classroom. Now, you can also share in
the fun at home, or anywhere a computer is connected to the Internet. We hope you enjoy exploring
Kidbiz/Teenbiz with your child.

                     Deployed Parent-Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Honolulu recognizes how hard it can be on a family to have a parent
deployed, and so started a program for children with a deployed parent earlier this year. They
match each child with a mentor and the group spends time together once a month on a Saturday
doing different activities, some outings are Hawaiian cultural events, art projects with a teacher
from the Honolulu Academy of Arts, hikes, learning ukuleles, etc. Many of the “Big Brothers”
or “Big Sisters” are from the Hickam Air Force Base Medical Group, but there are others as

The “Little Brothers” and “Little Sisters” will get the opportunity to spend time with an adult
outside of the family for added support and friendship, but also get the opportunity to gain new
experiences. Parents will need to drop off their children at Nimitz Elementary School for us to
meet up before going on to our activity. Each mentor is screened thoroughly. “Matches” are
also welcome to spend time together outside of the one time a month meeting.

Children whose parents have recently returned from deployment or will be returning soon are
still welcome to join. Please contact the school’s counselor, Darla Thomas, for an application if
you are interested and someone will be contacting you. You can also call Karen Poggi at Big
Brothers Big Sisters at 695-4601.
