On Wednesdays, teachers convene from 2:00 - 4:00 to learn about the latest in curriculum, instruction, and assessment strategies. Recently, our teachers took part in a professional development session to learn more about Next Generation Science Standards using the 5E Model. They constructed a SUPER INSECT using a lesson from our science curriculum, StemScopes.
Today, Kahala students, staff and The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) joined a national movement for inclusive, nurturing learning for all. October 24, 2018, is Unity Day so everyone was encouraged to wear orange to show we care about safe, supportive schools, and communities. Let’s show solidarity during National Bullying Prevention Month. To support this positive movement, all students and staff received orange bracelets with the message Unite for KINDNESS, ACCEPTANCE, and ALOHA. In addition, students were encouraged to wear orange shirts today instead of their red Kahala shirts as we usually do on Wednesdays. Together we will show our unity for a safe, caring and supportive learning environment for all.
