Graduation 2017


Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! A new year is upon us providing wonderful opportunities to start fresh, to start strong, and enduring courage to attain our goals/resolutions. May 2018 find each of us modeling “Ho’omau”…persistence, perseverance and renewal. To continue, to perpetuate, to never give up. Together we make that positive difference for our students and community. What we do matters!!!

Personnel Changes:
Kera Parker , Grade 9 HUI: Kera will not be returning this semester and relocating to the mainland with her fiancee later this month. We thank Kera for her good work and wish her the very best! Interviews for a new grade 9 HUI teacher will be starting shortly and during the interim, Ines Roberts will be substituting.
Beth Sette, English – Grade 9 HUI: Beth returns to our faculty as she will be covering for Kahele Keawe who is on sabbatical leave this semester. Great to have Beth back and know that she’ll have great support as she transitions back to Kapaa High.
LTC Vince Morikawa – JROTC: With the recent retirement of LTC Roberto Levoit, LTC Morikawa will be joining our faculty in mid-January to take charge of our JROTC program.

Classroom Furniture & Lighting Upgrades:
Classroom/offices are being upgraded with new LED lighting systems with nearly one-third of the rooms/offices completed. Replacement of new student/teachers’ desks and chairs are also taking place. Mahalo to Head Custodian Andrew Winchester, his custodial crew, and DAGS electrician for the splendid ongoing work. Replacement efforts will continue per available funding support. Please take time to recognize our dedicated custodial crew as they also were able to make time to clean/wax several classrooms during the winter break. They had a heavy load and truly blessed with the tremendous amount of work accomplished!
