Volleyball season at KCS officially wrapped this week Tuesday.  Our girls team, seeded #4 in the Hawaii Sports Fellowship Tournament, faced Friendship Christian School for the third time this season.  After splitting the first two sets, the teams battled in a tight third set.  The girls fought off two FCS match points to tie it at 14. However, FCS scored the next two points to win the game 17-25, 25-18, 16-14.

The game concluded a successful season for the girls. They ended the regular season on a three game winning streak, which improved their record to 4-4 prior to the tournament.

Reflecting on the season, Mr. Kaji recounts numerous highlights which include watching his team pull out several exciting wins. He attributes the growth in his players to their hard work during practice. The upperclassmen of the team have also taken on leadership roles by encouraging the younger players.

The boys team finished the season at 1-7.  They didn’t qualify for the post-season tournament, but Mr. Seria is proud of the boys’ effort throughout the season.  He has seen growth in his setters and the team’s transition between offense and defense in games.  He remains optimistic for the future of his young team.  Go, KCS!

Classroom Connection: 3rd Grade Garden

Students from 3B are all smiles after watering their garden and planting kale.

Tucked away by the ‘Ekahi House, fronting Mahina Avenue, is a small garden under the care of our 3rd graders.  As well as giving the students a fun outdoor activity, the garden project is tied various classroom subjects, from science to Bible.  Miss Narimatsu’s 3B class has also used the garden for adjective practice in writing exercises. Miss Sun’s 3A class is growing herbs and plans to come up with a recipe that incorporates those ingredients.

The garden has built community within both classes and given the students a sense of stewardship.  Volunteers go down to the garden during recess times to water the plants and those with a strong interest in the project will check plant growth. Both classes look forward to enjoying the fruit of their labor in the coming months!

Mrs. Ahn addresses the 'Ohana Group task force.

It was encouraging to see the parents in attendance during Wednesday’s PTG General Meeting.  After reviewing all the worthy endeavors that the PTG supports, from student activities to special projects, parents and teachers broke up into task groups.

The following is a summary of the groups for 2014-15:

Fundraising: This task group oversees the two major fundraisers for the year and shared ideas for upcoming years. Grandparents: Reflecting on successful preschool and middle/high school events last year, this group hopes to expand grandparent events to other grade levels.  They look forward to partnering with teachers and room parents to find more ways to honor grandparents in the KCS ‘ohana.  
Summer Help and Supplies:  Peter Lum (PTG Vice-President/Treasurer) identified the importance of parents helping teachers in their classrooms, especially in the weeks leading up to the start of school.  Although most of the work for this group will occur in the summer, they are also open to opportunities to support KCS staff throughout the year.
‘Ohana:  As one of the largest groups, the goal of this group is to foster connections among families outside of school hours.  The group discussed ideas by grade level and looks forward to planning 1-2 events this year!
KCC Outreach:  KCC staff shared about some neat events the church has planned for the fall.  This group seeks to connect school families with all the wonderful opportunities offered by KCC.  The Harvest Festival is coming up on October 31!
