Class in Session for Parents

September 26, 2014

Grade 6A parents work on constructing a periscope in Science class.

This week Wednesday and Thursday marked our annual Visitation Days for 6th grade parents.  These two days are a unique opportunity for one parent (or grandparent) to shadow their 6th grader for the entire day.  From homeroom to the core and elective subjects, parents learned alongside their child as they moved from class to class for seven periods.  Parents scheduled on Wednesday got a workout in Mr. Seria’s PE class, while parents on Thursday experienced Mr. Kanakanui and Mr. Wilcox’s Band/Chorus class.  We hope parents enjoyed their day in the life of a KCS middle schooler!

Congratulations to this year’s 2014-15 Student Council officers.

Students in 1st to 11th grade gathered in the Worship Center on Tuesday to listen to speeches from our 2014-15 candidates for Student Council Officer positions.  A number of students submitted applications for the four positions.  After candidates presented their speeches, explaining their qualifications and ideas for serving their school community, students and staff had their chance to vote.  

The votes have been counted, and we are pleased to present Treasurer Samuel Stone (Gr. 10), Secretary Charis Ahn (Gr. 11),  Vice-President Kylie Umebayashi (Gr. 11), and President Kanoe Fisher (Gr. 11) as our student leaders.  Advisor Mrs. Trapasso looks forward to working with this group.  She said, “The officers elected have great energy and should be wonderful leaders in fulfilling the mission of serving our ‘ohana and local community.”  

As a service oriented group, the Student Council will be leading the student body in various projects throughout the year.  They look forward to collecting recyclables on October 2 and organizing a drive to collect hygiene products for the River of Life ministry next month.

Middle School Camp Recap

8th grade girls on the Kaena Point Hike.

Was it Colonel Mustard, in the Billiard Room, with the wrench? While our students weren’t exactly solving murder mysteries, a biblical spin on the popular board game provided the theme (“Clue”) for this year’s middle school camp, held on September 10-12. Pastor Valente shared a series of messages that tied elements of the game (gathering information and making deductions) to understanding how “clues” are dropped by the kind of life we live.  Through scripture and practical applications, he challenged students to live in such a way that their “clues” point people to the truth of Jesus.  In keeping with the theme, Mr. Kwong planned a scavenger hunt that tested the students’ biblical knowledge as they searched for clues across the campgrounds.

Students also enjoyed a variety of outdoor activities at Camp Erdman. For many campers, highlights included conquering the Odyssey high ropes course, climbing the Alpine Tower, or navigating the Climbing Wall. As students and staff interacted with one another, our hope is that the fellowship, team-building activities, and small group time created lifelong memories!

From Kaimuki to Kenya!

Pastor Ron and students pray over the suitcases, asking for God's blessing on the kids that will receive these items.

Last week, Pastor Ron shared in chapel about his upcoming trip to Africa.  While we are building a school for the kids of Kaimuki, KCC and KCS families are also going to build a school for the kids of Kenya in the Mathare Valley slums outside of Nairobi. Pastor Ron encouraged students to help him fill four suitcases with items for the kids in Kenya.  He asked students to bring a cap (new or used, but clean) and a few small school supplies items (pencils, erasers, pens, crayons, etc.).

Throughout the week, the suitcases slowly filled up! The KCS 'ohana responded by donating over a hundred caps and tons of new school supplies for children in the Mathare Valley.  Former KCS parent Joe Littlefield will also be traveling to Africa with Pastor Ron, and this morning in chapel, they expressed their gratitude to the student body for helping them meet their goal of filling four suitcases.  The items are sure to make a lifetime impact on their recipients!

Pastor Ron leaves for Kenya September 16.  Please pray for his trip and the kids in Kenya - that they would feel Jesus' love extended from Kaimuki!
