Heads Up…We will begin collecting those Pennies for Pauahi on Mon., Nov. 27th. Save your pennies for a good cause to help others who are less fortunate to go to school!
The haumāna and I will also be working together to plan “Project Kahiau,” a service learning leadership project, that will require ohana kōkua. Students will be planning ways to “share aloha” & putting it into ACTION soon! This project addresses our yearlong essential question: “What is Our Kuleana?…As KSH Haumāna, As a Hawaiian, As a Global Citizen?” They get to create a meaningful service learning project that will impact our community, our lāhui, our world…changing our world, one heart at a time! Stay tuned for more info in the coming days!
*Great convo started with keiki, what is your kuleana? How can you/we touch a heart? What can you/we do to make a positive difference in the community we live in, our world? 5th Graders CAN make a difference! Remember Texas! Be creative, have discussions, strategize, plan, and share the aloha! We are blessed!
