Thank you Cobra families for your generous donations to our Student Council led canned food drive.  Students brought in a total of about 1,384 pounds of non-perishable food items, which will support needy families in our State.  Way to go Cobras!

A warm mahalo to Niu Valley Middle School’s students and world class music department for engaging and entertaining our students.  Among the musical delights, was a selection from the Disney Pixar Incredibles movie, which was a big hit for our Cobras!  We look forward to seeing you back next school year.

 

Thank you to our Student Council for sign waiving to cap off our Connect & Respect week as we stand together against bullying!

Our Kaiser Complex Connect and Respect Week this school year runs from October 29th-November 2.  Students, please participate in the various activities as we intentionally stand together against bullying.

A warm mahalo to our community volunteers who, in conjunction with a Boy Scout Eagle project, repainted many of the exterior walls along our central covered walkway.  Thank you for spending your Saturday afternoon to engage in acts of service.

Join us for our next Engage & Innovate Workshop on Tuesday, October 16th at 6:00-7:00PM in our cafeteria.  Mr. Chris Koanui, a local comic book artist, colorist, and creator of the Nightmarcher comic book, will share with our students how he draws comic book characters and will share some drawing tips with our students.

No prior character drawing experience is required, just an open mind and a willingness to learn and to use your imagination.  Developing visual arts skills is one way our students can become better communicators.

Online Registration Period will be from Monday, September 17 – Monday, September 24.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED

Students will be notified via hardcopy by September 27, 2018, as to whether they were registered given the limited number of spaces available.

For our first Engage & Innovate series workshop of the school year, we had a STEM night that featured our students making their own desktop hydroponic kits with the partnership of Hardware Science/Ben Franklin Stores.  Our students planted basil and we hope their green thumbs yield healthy plants like the one in the above photo.  Go Cobras!
