Leo or Leona the Lion

Ashley Robinson, 1st Grade, Sacred Hearts Academy
Academy 1st graders are learning to “draw from reference,” which means looking at a picture carefully, and drawing what you see. Students practiced using their knowledge of the different line families to determine what type of line to draw next: straight, curved or angled.

Next, they used their imagination to create a more realistic or imaginary setting for the lion. Some really show off their sense of humor by including details like the lions underwear hanging on a hanger in their room, or a heavenly lion on cloud wearing a halo.
Kanoe Kostiha, 1st Grade, Sacred Hearts Academy

Drawings were colored in with markers, and oil pastel for the background. They experimented with using the side of the oil pastel to create a bumpy texture, coloring like a crayon or “smudging”  it for a softer look.

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!
