Monday Message

Aloha to the good people in the learning community of Alaka’i O Kaua’i Charter School. I hope this message finds you enjoying the start of the annual Winter Break.

We had an exciting last week on campus complete with our Festive Spirit Week, the Christmas Craft Fair for animal preservation charities, the conclusion of the annual Food Hamper drive, and classroom celebrations just to list a few highlights that our unique charter school witnessed.

Festive Spirit Week included a Holiday Hat Day, a Silly Sock Day, an Animal Theme Day run in conjunction with the craft fair, a Red/ Green Day, and Christmas PJ Day and we are pleased to share that our school does have amazing spirit and engagement from our keiki and staff.

We loved the enthusiasm that everyone brought to campus and even Sunny got in the spirit by wearing Silly Socks in the Grade Three class.

The Christmas Craft Fair to raise awareness, support, and funds for endangered wildlife charities was a resounding success. The creativity and artistic talents of our learners were clearly on display as all the classes made crafts for the event.

Although your keiki may not have chosen some of the items in the photo, we thought it might be nice to share some of the wonderful work that our learners made to support this project.

We greatly appreciate the generosity of our learning community as we know that this endeavor raised over $2000. Once we have finalized the numbers we will share the happy news of the final count sometime after the Winter Break.

Speaking of generosity, the response to the annual Holiday Hamper Food Drive far exceeded our numbers from last year.

The Alaka’i O Kaua’i Charter School learning community clearly embraced our character trait focus of the month which was compassion as we were able to build dozens of food hampers to be distributed within our community first and then the island of Kaua’i.

As a social-emotional focused school, we greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with our learners to provide a real life experience to show compassion for others.

Mele Kalikimaka kakou and best wishes for a break filled with food, friends, family, and fun.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back on campus on Tuesday, January 4th, to start the new calendar year.

Malama pono.
