GOAL 1:   STUDENT SUCCESS:   

Bridge Project – Grade 9

The Bridge Project will begin within the 9th grade classrooms starting today 5/28.  The competition will be held in the gym on Thursday May 30.

Commencement Ceremony

Thank you to all the families, friends, faculty, and staff that attended commencement on Friday May 24.  Once again, it turned out to be a great evening of celebration for the 230+ students who graduated.  Special thanks to the countless number of volunteers who organized, set-up, and broke down for the ceremony.

Student Support

With this being the last week of the school year, asking teachers to please ensure that parent/guardian contact has been made for all students who are in jeopardy of failing a course.  Please continue to work with every student until the very end as we all need a little extra boost during this very stressful time of year.

Conduct

Administration will continue to do tardy sweeps and monitor appropriate school wear daily.  Having students in class on time and dressed appropriate has definitely had a positive impact on the Kapaa HS community.  Teachers, please immediately notify administration of students who are not wearing proper school attire as they enter your classroom.  This will help ensure that all rules and expectation can be addressed equitably across campus.

GOAL 2:   STAFF SUCCESS:

Master Schedule

All Teachers

As we close out the school year I am open to meeting with any teachers who have concerns and questions regarding next year, or anything to reflect on this last semester.  I am always looking for ways to better support our teachers and students while continuously improving Kapaa HS to get to where we need to be.  Your input is extremely valuable in this process.  I am available until 3 pm Tuesday, and all day Thursday and Friday.  Please stop  by if you have a chance.  If you can’t make it, I just would like to say thank you for all your hard work as we transition into next year.  I am looking forward to continuing to work with all of you.  Have a great summer and we will see you at the end of July!
