Brie Bella of Maryknoll School wins 2014 USA Judo Youth and Scholastic National Championship

On March 22, Maryknoll’s own Brie Bella won the 2014 Female Intermediate 2 -28 kg. division at the Youth & Scholastic National Championships.

Brie travelled with her team, Hawaii Tenri Judo Club, to Irving, Texas to compete with more than 600 of her peers from all over the United States. Brie has been doing judo with Hawaii Tenri Club since she was five. Her father and brother are also judo champions, so the love for the sport runs in the family. 

Brie has a strong passion for the humble sport, and she works hard to accomplish her goals. Her winning attitude matched with diligence and determination has helped her to become the strong athlete she is. 

Even as a three-time champion, Brie, like most accomplished athletes, still got her fair share of jitters before it was her turn to get on the mat and compete. Her focus was quickly regained as soon as she got her first grip, and she went on to be undefeated throughout the entire competition.

I love judo, and I am so happy for my win!  But I know there's a lot more for me to learn. #judoalwaysonmymind.” (her Instagram tagline) says the young champ. With her new acquired gold medal, Brie was awarded a spot on the USA Judo Junior World Team.  This honor allows Brie to compete internationally, including the upcoming Ilioupolis Cup International in Athens, Greece and the Grand Prix Marcinelle in Marcinelle, France.

Eighth Grade 2014 D.C. Trip

Maryknoll students embarked on their annual and much anticipated eighth grade trip on Thursday, March 20. Each year, the eighth grade class travels together on an educational and very memorable trip that they wait for all year long. An excited bunch of 40 students and four teachers are taking part in the “2014 D.C. Trip.” Currently, they are experiencing some of America’s greatest treasures.

Pictured are our eighth graders in front the Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home in Virginia. The house is on the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) list, regarded as one of the most prized landmarks in the world.

The trip will continue until March 30, and will include visits to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and a multitude of memorials. Keep up with the students on Vice President Kris Kern’s blog that will serve you with photo and video updates along with more information outlining the trip at http://kriskern.weebly.com/blog.html.

Living Noblesse Oblige - Suzeth Carreon - High School Teacher of the Week

Teacher of the Week: Suzeth Carreon

Living Noblesse Oblige

            Suzeth Carreon, Religion teacher at Maryknoll High School since 2001, is seen in the picture above sharing her thoughts during a faculty discussion about school culture at Maryknoll High School and what can be done to help our students make the most moral and ethical choices in their lives. Others take interest in hearing Mrs. Carreon because she exemplifies what it means to be of service to God, others, and to live as Jesus did.

            Born and raised in the city of Manila, Mrs. Carreon’s mother worked as a librarian and her father as an entrepreneur in the Philippines. She attended Bonifacio Elementary School as a young kid, where she found her passion for dancing and singing. She took her talents with her through to Canossian College, an all-girl Catholic high school where she continued sharing her talents with others. After high school, Mrs. Carreon applied to Manuel Quezon University, where she attained an undergraduate degree in Foreign Service (better known in the U.S. as International Relations).    

            Mrs. Carreon could have become a foreign ambassador like some of her classmates did after graduating from college. Instead, she chose to support her husband who worked as a Civil Engineer and travelled to Samoa to raise her family. Mrs. Carreon’s time in Samoa made a big impact on her. All three of her children were born and raised in American Samoa. During her time there, she found her passion for teaching and taught the subjects of English, Language Arts, American Literature and Writing at Samoana High School and South Pacific Academy. After attaining a scholarship to study at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, Mrs. Carreon made the decision to move to Hawaii with her family to complete her MA Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction in 1995. Soon after, she attained a teaching position at St. John the Baptist School on Oahu and taught Religion, Language Arts and Social Studies from 1999 to 2001. The next year, she was hired at Maryknoll School to teach Religion and she has been here ever since.

            Over the years at Maryknoll, Mrs. Carreon has taught many religion courses including Morality, Catholic Social Justice, and more. She appreciates the smallness of the campus, where students can get to know each other very well. Mrs. Carreon is thankful for the opportunities Maryknoll has given her to grow as teacher and as a person. She is most proud of Maryknoll’s commitment to teaching students about Catholic values. Along with Campus Ministers Leo Delgado and Christopher Casupang, Mrs. Carreon has led eleven Kairos retreats and one Emmaus retreat. In addition to this, she has exposed hundreds of our students to God’s Works of Mercy by asking students to join her in feeding the homeless, visiting the sick and more.

            Mrs. Carreon takes her job very seriously and spends many hours planning and prepping lessons to be used in the classroom with her students. She lives for the glory of God and wants to “teach like Jesus, love like him and live like him.” We thank Mrs. Carreon for being an example of “Noblesse Oblige” for our students by continuing to live a life of service to others. Mahalo Mrs. Carreon for being an important part of our Maryknoll family for so many years and for modeling the Christian values that makes Maryknoll School so special.

Hawaii Business Magazine Recognizes Maryknoll School as one of Hawaii’s Best Places to Work

Hawaii Business Magazine honored Maryknoll School by naming the institution one of the Best Places to Work in Hawaii, for the fourth year in a row.

In the April 2014 issue of Hawaii Business, Maryknoll was recognized not only as one of the best places to work, but also the most family-friendly medium-sized employer, the top non-profit employer, and the only school to be recognized for any award on this year’s list.

“As Hawaii’s largest Catholic School, we recognize the impact our employees have on such a tremendous number of youth.” Said Loryn Guiffre, Maryknoll School Director of Marketing, “It is in our belief that maintaining a healthy environment for our staff will help to do the same for our students. We believe that happy teachers make for happy students!”

Maryknoll is guided by the motto “Noblesse Oblige,” meaning, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” Maryknoll School employees work as leaders in our community, continually growing with traits of professionalism, creativity, pride, service, and the ability to nurture dreams in themselves, as well as and others. Maryknoll’s 166 staff and faculty members understand that each child deserves caring, respectful, strong leaders to help them instill those same values into their own lives.

You can find Maryknoll School featured on the pages of the Hawaii Business Magazine April 2014 issue. We appreciate all our staff and faculty members, and all that they do for our school, students, and Maryknoll community.  Read more here: http://www.hawaiibusiness.com/Hawaii-Business/April-2014/Best-Places-to-Work-in-Hawaii-2014/

PTG Hosts Kindergarten Event

Mahalo to all the Kindergarten families who were able to join us on Saturday, August 18th for the Parent Teacher Guild’s Kindergarten event! In order to help our keiki transition into the school environment and feel comfortable with their new classrooms and teachers, Kindergarten students were able to experience what their first day of school will be like. The students learned the daily student routine, brought in their backpacks and learned to store them in their personal cubbies, met their teachers and peers, participated in a craft activity and played on the playground! Our Kindergarten parents also had the chance to meet other parents and become more familiar with our Parent Teacher Guild. We hope that this event will make it a little easier to drop of your children on their first day of school this week! Welcome to Maryknoll grade school, a nurturing community where your students embark on the exciting adventure of learning.

Journeying Through Lent

Our Lenten journey began this year with an all school Ash Wednesday Mass.  Lent afforded us the time to be other-centered by focusing on more intense prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Our campus was filled with many opportunities for reflection and action: celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Living Stations of the Cross, AGAPE Retreat, KAIROS Retreat, Senior Service Day, classroom Lenten reflections and activities, Seder Meal, Operation Rice Bowl, faculty/staff book reflection, our upcoming all school Holy Thursday prayer service, and your continued personal witness.  The faith life of Maryknoll continues to foster and define who we are - a faith filled community in service to one another.

As you travel through Holy Week may the blessings of our loving God be
upon your family.

Have a blessed Easter.

From kindergarten through 12th grade, Maryknoll's students are challenged each and every school day to develop mind, body, and soul.  Science and robotics programs, economics, theater and band, art, extracurricular activities, athletic programs and retreats all develop the whole child.
