Our Hale Halawai Volunteers

Many thanks to our Army and community partners who are helping to build our Hale Halawai. The trees for our hale were delivered by our Army partners on Thursday. Teachers came out to learn how to strip the bark from the trees on Friday, under the direction of our PCNC Coordinator, Keith Boychuk. If you would like to join us in this project, we will be bark stripping on Saturday 2/27 from 9:00am - 12:00pm. More photos are linked to this article.

Unruly Splats - Combining Coding With PE

MakerSpace teacher, Ms. Tateyama and Grade 1 teacher, Mrs. Morikawa, collaborate to combine coding with a lesson on skipping. The Splat devices are coded for students to participate in a game called Four Corners. The students enjoy playing the game while getting much needed physical activity.

Kindergarten Students Emulate Jackson Pollock Art

"Jackson Pollock was an influential American painter, and the leading force behind the abstract expressionist movement in the art world. Pollock's greatness lies in developing one of the most radical abstract styles in the history of modern art, detaching line from color, redefining the categories of drawing and painting, and finding new means to describe pictorial space." (https://www.jackson-pollock.org/)

Using our Sphero devices to code their movements, Mrs. Villarreal, our Visual Arts teacher, guided our students to create art pieces that emulate Pollock's works. Follow this post to see the finished artwork and videos!
