Principal's Message- Nov/Dec 2022

Please join us at ‘Ohana Night, our Period 8 Showcase, on Wednesday, December 14 from 5-6:30 p.m. at our school campus. I use a three-legged stool to explain what’s most important at Olomana School. Each of the legs on this stool represents a pillar in teaching and learning. I wrote about one of our pillars, PROJECT-BASED LEARNING, in a previous parent newsletter. In this brief I touch on WELLNESS, which is a second pillar. Believe it or not, our Friday, Period 8 classes promote wellness. When students build surfboards, hike with a purpose, broadcast news, and cook ono kine grinds, they are making connections to school, each other, their teachers, and their own aspirations. They get frequent practice in some of the skills found in wellness lessons, such as career planning, communicating and collaborating with others, and reflecting. The biggest impact comes when these skills are practiced in the context of authentic and meaningful topics and meaningful relationships. We invite you to learn more about our Period 8 classes and how our students are building skills and relationships on December 14. Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to [email protected] by December 2. If you're still wondering about our third pillar, it is literacy. I'll write more on how we are helping our students become independent readers in a future article.
