Kapalama High School

 

Summary Daily Bulletin for Friday, May 25, 2018

Students grades 9-12 are reminded that Kekūhaupi‘o gym facilities are off limits, unless attending a class or assembly supervised by a teacher.

Maintaining a safe campus for students, staff, and visitors is everyone’s kuleana. One of the most common risks to community safety is unsafe driving habits. There were 48 motor vehicle-related accidents on campus between August and December 2017. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured. Driving safely on campus always calls for extra awareness due to large groups of students moving about the campus, vehicles entering/exiting parking lots and the presence of school buses, operations vehicles, delivery vehicles and utility vehicles. With the start of the 2nd semester of the school year we ask for everyone’s kōkua and drive with Aloha while on-campus and while driving in the neighborhoods beyond our gates and exits. It should be noted that Honolulu’s Mobile Electronic Devices ordinance has also been revised to include pedestrians viewing their phones while crossing a street. While the State and County traffic code (with exception of Disabled Parking violations) cannot be enforced on campus we ask that you follow the rules of the road so that our haumāna, faculty, staff and visitors will be safe during their travels on and off campus!

Summer Drivers Education Class June 12 thru June 29, 2018 Monday thru Friday 1pm to 3pm Class will be held on campus at the Akahi Student Center. $199.00 (Class Certification Only). For more info go to: http://driversedatks.com/ Call 808-383-5160 email: mail@driversedhawaii.com

Congratulations to JAKE UYECHI for winning the 2018 National American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) Energy Challenge! This is the second year in a row that Jake has won this competition. Jake’s project “Optimizing Microbial Fuel Cell Power Output for Off-Grid Renewable Energy” won the grand award in this national competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development. Jake will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to present his project to high-level government officials and dignitaries. Jake’s goal was to increase the power output of his microbial fuel cells using mud from Kānewai Lo’I and He‘eia Fishpond, and to provide a sustainable source of energy for Hawaiiʻs farmers. Congratulations to Jake for representing our school so well. Mahalo to technology kumu Mike Massad and Honors Science research kumu Gail Ishimoto, for their support.
