KCS 'ohana expresses love and gratitude for Pastor Ron and Dee Arnold

A warm embrace of love and appreciation surrounded the Arnolds this morning, as a special combined chapel honored Pastor Ron and Aunty Dee's 25 years of service to the church and school.

Each class, from P3 through 12th grade, presented the Arnolds with a heartfelt gift. Classes prepared pictures, notes, photos, and verses of encouragement to express their gratitude for Pastor Ron and Dee's leadership and faithful support of KCS. Miss Kang's 2nd grade class shared the song, "Eye of the Storm," and the high school presented a dance to "Joy."

The KCS 'ohana surprised Pastor Ron by joining with him to sing "Raise the Cross," a song he wrote with former KCC Worship Minister Tony Tam Sing. During the Worship Center expansion process in the late 90s, Pastor Ron stood strong in his convictions to "raise the cross" that boldly stands as the focal point of the exterior of the Worship Center, a symbol of hope and healing to the Kaimuki community and beyond.

Elders and KCC/KCS staff gathered together to close the celebration in prayer. Inspired by the Arnolds' milestone of ministry at Kaimuki Christian, Principal Mrs. Ahn pledged, "We, the staff of KCS, will continue to Raise the Cross of Jesus."

In March, senior Emily Kuwaye was recognized as the 1st place winner in the high school poetry division of the 19th annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest. As part of her prize, Emily Kuwaye participated in an all-expenses paid study trip to Los Angeles in June. She joined other winners from across the country, touring sites that included the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, the Museum of Tolerance, and the Japanese American National Museum. She also had the honor of meeting Holocaust survivors and hearing their inspiring stories.

As Emily's poem, "Your Memory," was the first entry from Hawaii to receive thisrecognition, she garnered the attention of the local media this summer. Michael Tsai featured Emily's story in his Honolulu Star-Advertiser "Incidental Lives" column (subscription needed to read full article). On July 17, Emily and her mom, Mrs. Watanabe, made an appearance on Hawaii News Now Sunrise.

"Annyeonghaseyo!" The Korean greeting echoed in the hallways on Tuesday, August 14, as 19 students from Jinhae Institute visited various elementary and middle school classes.

The visit was coordinated by UH West Oahu as part of their international student recruitment process. The Korean students, who range in ages from 5th to 10th grade, visited several schools on the island, giving them a taste of the American school experience.

Jinhae students joined their KCS peers in classes that included social studies, Chinese, art, and music, and enjoyed a pizza lunch with middle school students. Both KCS and Jinhae students seemed to embrace this opportunity to establish new friendships and learn from each other!
