Caring and Kindness of Kupuna Celebrated

To celebrate the special role kupuna play in their lives, students in grades seven to 12 welcomed these special members of their 'ohana to campus on November 15 for the school's annual Grandparent' Day festivities. 

Over 300 kupuna joined their granddaughters for a special program showcasing some of the school's outstanding performing artists before sojourning to classrooms to get a glimpse into student life. They also participated in some fun and spirited activities, including Bingo, "Name That Tune" and even a session making and "personalizing" a Gak-like concoction with bright colors.

The celebration of Academy grandparents continues on November 17 when 300+ kupuna of those in grades Pre-School to six descend on campus!

Coming Together For Good Cause

Wizards, witches and even Wonder Woman were spotted across campus on October 21 as the school 'ohana celebrated Halloween - with a good cause in mind. 

As part of the "Costumes For a Cause" campaign, students donated $3 to "dress-down" or "dress-up" for the day. 

Proceeds from the Lower School will benefit Aloha United Way, and the High School's efforts will go towards the National Catholic Educational Association's Hurricane Relief Fund to assist Catholic Schools devastated by recent storms.

Does Java Actually Jolt Growth?

As part of their unit on cell division, the "biologists" in AP class recently set out to confirm or cast doubt on the belief that coffee inhibits growth. 

The students soaked pieces of garlic in three different substances - coffee, water and growth hormone and prepared a slide for each sample. Then students carefully studied the reaction in each garlic piece under a microscope. And, using a cell phone they captured a close-up image to document the action and count the instances of cell division.

Their surprising findings? Coffee actually made the garlic "grow more!"
