Hāweo Luncheon

Congratulations to Kai and Trinity! These two outstanding haumana were recognized today at the Hāweo Luncheon for demonstrating Kūpono throughout the month of March. In fact, these students consistently demonstrate this Hawaiian value the whole year through. Kūpono means honest, decent, appropriate behavior at all times. Our awardees are awesome students that model impeccable behavior in and out of the classroom.

Mahalo to Kai’s and Trinity’s ‘ohana for joining in on this celebration today!

Jump, Jump, Jump!

Whew! My legs are tired and a bit sore after jump, jump, jumping away the afternoon today. But it was all for a great cause… to raise money for the American Heart Society and their fight against heart disease. Every year our keiki look forward to Jump Rope For Heart and so do I.

Jumping is such a great way to keep our heart and body healthy. I love to see the keiki exercising and having fun while doing it. Some of the kids attempted to teach me a trick or two, but this teacher’s younger days are gone and the body doesn’t work like it used to. But mahalo, children, for trying anyway! I enjoyed jumping with you!

Fabulous Fabulists

Our annual Speech Festival was held today at Lunalilo Hale. Four fabulous fabulists retold fables that were originally written by a Greek writer named Aesop. Trinity and Sid recited “Jupiter and the Queen Bee” while Hina and Napua performed “The Donkey, the Lion and the Rooster”. Students from other grade levels entertained us with their own selections from a variety of genres as well. Excellent job, girls!
