Schol­arly Trib­ute Set For Kaala

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Highlights -

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.
