New Student Leaders Elected

September 08, 2017
By KCS Staff

On September 7, students in 1st – 12th grade gathered in the Worship Center to hear speeches by the seven students vying for Student Council Officer positions. Candidates shared about themselves, their qualifications for the positions, and the fresh ideas they could bring to student leadership. 

Under the guidance of Advisor Mrs. Trapasso, the newly elected team of Justus Ahn (President), Shereyna Shinbo (Vice President), Skylar Yoshimoto (Treasurer), and Heather Yamauchi (Secretary) looks forward to “giving back” to KCS. Projects planned and implemented throughout the school year will aim to reflect Student Council’s goals to serve humbly and give God all the glory. Officers will work with grade level representatives to serve KCS families and reach out to the community. 

Student Council begins their work right away, as they will hold their first meeting next week to discuss October’s service opportunity. Monthly recycling resumes on October 5. Special thanks to Henry Tobita, who has volunteered his time to transport recyclables to the redemption center! 

KCS approved to accept international students

In early August, KCS received verification it had been approved by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to allow international students (K-12th grade) to apply for admission to KCS. As a SEVP certified school, KCS can generate an I-20 form for non-immigrant students to obtain their visa. 

As school leadership sees a growing market in Hawaii for international students, the process for approval began in late 2016. The procedure included submitting documentation, training for designated school officials, and a site visit and interview by a local field representative from SEVP. 

Principal Mrs. Ahn was recently interviewed for a Private School Special Report in Pacific Business News. In an article covering the topic of international students, she shared these thoughts: “As the pool of international students coming to Hawaii increases, we have seen an increase in inquiries, so we are really excited to grow in this area.”

"It's not my school; it's God's school," proclaims the new principal of Kaimuki Christian School, Mrs. Robyn Ahn. Mrs. Ahn's faithfulness to the Lord strengthens her work as the school's new leader, a position that she feels blessed to have received. Mrs. Ahn aims to use this opportunity to help students experience God's great love and kindness through the workings of our growing Christian school.

To accomplish the school's great purpose to glorify God, Mrs. Ahn desires to encourage students to build a personal relationship with the Lord during their time at Kaimuki Christian School. She also strives to ensure that children know who they are in Christ and teach them to be aware of their importance to Him. Not only does Mrs. Ahn intend to impact the lives of the students, but she also prays for God to use our school as a light to those in the surrounding community. She hopes that others can be inspired by the values of our school.

Mrs. Ahn feels very blessed to have received prayers from many around her. Touched by the overwhelming support, she has felt greatly encouraged. She prays that God will continue to equip her with wisdom and guide her to carry out His purpose for the school.
