Five students recognized in special edition Keiki Day paper
KCS is pleased to announce that the Keiki Day edition of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, published on Tuesday, May 9, features the work of five of its students! This special newspaper supports Parents and Children Together (PACT), a local non-profit that has helped Hawaii families in the areas of “early childhood education, domestic violence, family strengthening, behavioral health support, and community building” since 1968.
For this year's contest, students submitted entries centered on the theme "Inspire Hawai'i's Future." Congratulations to grade-level winners Kainoa Kanakanui '34, Noa Termini '34, Makena Holm '26, Noah Sumikawa '25, and Aliyah Kurian '24. The Keiki Day paper published Kainoa and Noa's drawings and Makena, Noah, and Aliyah's poems. According to Leigh Morrison, PACT’s Community Engagement Director, the contest received “hundreds of entries from over thirty-five schools." With five winners from KCS, she also shared the following: “The judges were very impressed with all the entries from Kaimuki Christian School and wanted to pass on that you have a fantastic writing program.” Way to go, Keiki Day creative contest winners!
