Scholarly Tribute Set For Kaala
Kaala Elementary School has taken an honorable step toward nurturing dependable, studious children, and it will all come together on Thursday.
The Wahiawa school has been granted a charter to establish a National Elementary Honor Society, which means official recognition for outstanding students “who demonstrate excellence in scholarship and responsibility, including the ability to be a responsible student at school, at home and in the community.”
The school, at 427 students and growing, will induct its first seven members, all fourth-graders at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the cafeteria, recognizing them for leadership, service, citizenship and character. Students from Leilehua’s NHS chapter (including a Kaala alumnus) will assist at the program, which includes candlelight, a pledge and a reception. For more information, call vice principal Teri Thorstad at 622-6366.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals granted Kaala its charter for the NEHS chapter, which was established as a program in 2008.
