Changes in 2015-2016 School Calendar

Our May Day Celebration will be held this year on May 13, instead of May 6, as written on the original school calendar. This has been decided in order to avoid conflicts with championship tournaments in spring sports, which fall on that weekend. In past years, these athletes have had to miss our May Day program in order to compete.

Please mark your calendars, as you won't want to miss this impressive celebration of our Hawaiian culture that involves the entire student body.

Changing this date changes our A and B schedule slightly as well. Please download this calendar and replace the old one. And - always check the calendar on Google for changes

Middle School Artists Complete Compelling Animal Designs

Middle School art students just finished a labor-intensive project, creating abstracted animal designs on scratch board. First they practiced drawing silhouettes of their chosen animals.  Then they transferred them to scratch board. Using special tools, they scratched away all the white areas.  They tried to create an interesting arrangement of black, white, and patterned shapes that would represent the spirit of their animal.  "I think you'll be inspired by these students' powerful artwork," said Miss Penny!
