English 102 will be offered this summer. This course is FREE to all Kohala High School students. Deadline to register is MAY 1. Pls. see Mr. Hashimoto ASAP, if you are interested.

Students who will be attending the Summer College Tour in July need to attend a meeting during Morning Recess (9:26) today in Ms. Nietfeld’s room 17.

Did you let the deadline for buying a prom ticket slip by? Did you forget what day it was? Could you not find Mrs. Pasco in the Academy room? Were you too afraid to go in? Well, here’s your second chance. If you did not buy a prom ticket and still want to go, get your signed permission form, your $70 (cash or check), and your courage and head to the Academy room during morning or lunch recess before the end of today. Last chance.

We are nearing completion of the mural installation outside Room 34 (art room). Students in Mrs. Hoy’s Drawing & Painting class were asked in the spring of 2016 to select one of the original canoe plants that arrived via the Hawaiian migration. Sketching out their ideas and collaborating with another class mate, they were required to use colors that were opposite each other on the color wheel. After enlarging the design from their 9” x 12” pencil line drawing, students also collaborated on which colors were to go where in their design. The original panels for the artwork were actually recycled from the school’s gym. In the old days they were placed on the gym floor for dances and special events to protect the playing surface. They needed to be slightly trimmed to fit snugly, which was executed by Pat Hoy, Mrs. Hoy’s husband. Aliyah Page helped to design which panel would fit next to the other and painted petrogylphs to mirror the ones found in the Hawaiian Garden. She also airbrushed leaves of plants found around campus to make the transitions from one panel to the next seem like one unified work of art. Stop by during the Ho’ike to sign the guest book and celebrate with the students who worked on this project!
