Students Celebrate Dr. Seuss Day

On Monday, March 2, students and faculty at Maryknoll School celebrated the birthday of American writer and cartoonist, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to most by the pseudonym Dr. Seuss.

Students in the Kindergarten D class constructed and decorated their own personalized hats based off of one of Seuss’ most famous pieces: “The Cat in the Hat.” Seuss was the author of over 60 children’s books, and the Kindergarten D students had a great time celebrating Seuss and his imaginative accomplishments through their own artistic and literary adventures.

Robotics Team Takes Two Titles at State Competition

On Sunday, February 22, the Maryknoll Elementary School Robotics Team competed at the Hawaii VEX IQ State Championships, held at Pearlridge Center. Presented by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation, the VEX IQ Challenge featured students from the top qualifying local school programs.

Our students worked incredibly hard, and were awarded fifth place at the competition! Not only this, but they were also awarded “The Create Award.” This award was presented to the team who was judged to have had the most creative engineering solution to the game task. We are so proud of our brilliant students, and of these amazing accomplishments. It has been a wonderful adventure for all of those involved, as our students were even granted a segment on Hawaii News Now on Tuesday, February 17, as a precursor to the competition. Congratulations to our team, and to their robot named Buddy!

“Bagels with Bishop” at Maryknoll

On April 10, 2015, Maryknoll Senior Students participated in the diocesan Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry’s event, “Bagels with Bishop.”

As seniors begin to prepare for graduation and start planning for college, the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry (OYYAM) and Bishop Larry Silva assist the youth of Hawaii’s Catholic high schools over the course of a few months by engaging in the annual “Bagels with Bishop” program. The bishop provides advice geared towards assisting the students with their major upcoming life transition, including providing the teens with Catholic resources that are available for them in college.

The senior students began their morning by meeting in the Maryknoll Clarence T.C. Ching Gymnasium. The bishop led the students in prayer before beginning a delicious breakfast meal, followed by a discussion with the bishop structured around the concept of “fun and faith building.” A ‘Question and Answer’ segment with the bishop concludes the event.

We at Maryknoll School would like to thank OYYAM and Bishop Silva for spending time with our students, and for providing insight towards how they can develop a personal relationship with Christ. Our Spartans enjoyed a great morning of faith and learning. (And, of course, a handful of “selfies” with the bishop. What more do you need?)

Maryknoll School Participates in Hawaii Council of Economic Education's 2015 Economics Challenge

Twenty-eight Maryknoll students competed in the Hawaii Council on Economic Education’s 2015 Hawaii State Economics Challenge on Thursday, April 2 which was held at the University of Hawaii. Students (in teams of 4 members) participated in both the Adam Smith (AP) division and the David Ricardo (non-AP) division. During initial rounds, students demonstrate their economic understanding in challenging written tests. The final rounds of the Economics Challenge involve a “first-to-the-buzzer” format as teams answer questions on microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics, and current events.

 In the David Ricardo division, Ethan Chun, Jonathan Lau, Cortney Okaneku, and Tasia Ramos’ team score from their written tests qualified Maryknoll for the buzzer round finals against Iolani for the state championship. Tasia Ramos opted to let another Maryknoll student—Jade Wu—take her place in the buzzer round. Although the students did not win the buzzer round, they all found the experience unforgettable and extremely worthwhile.  

Congratulations to all the students who participated in this annual Economics Challenge and to the students who placed as state runner-ups in the non-AP division!  A big thank you also to Economics and AP Economics teacher, Ms. Kit-U Wong, for preparing our students extremely well for this event!

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.

Ash Wednesday: The Beginning of Lent

In his Lenten message for 2015. . . , Pope Francis asks us to "make our hearts firm" (Jas 5:8) and to be "merciful, attentive and generous." Embrace his call to mercy by reaching out to those in need.  Be attentive to the Lenten call to prayer; be generous with your time and treasure. 

"Through prayer, charity and humility before God, people receive a heart "which is firm and merciful, attentive and generous, a heart which is not closed, indifferent or prey to the globalization of indifference," Pope Francis says in his Lenten message. Lent begins February 18 for Latin-rite Catholics.

Raise Up. Sacrifice. Offer.

Take inspiration for your Lenten journey from the pope's message and our calendar.

This Lent, you are encouraged to raise up the needs of the world in prayer, to sacrificeby giving up food and material wants, and to offer your time, talent and treasure as good stewards of the gifts God has given you. 

"…how greatly I desire that all those places where the Church is present, especially our parishes and our communities, may become islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference!" — Pope Francis, Message for Lent 2015. . . 

During Lent, the Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms. The fasting that all do together on Fridays is but a sign of the daily Lenten discipline of individuals and households: fasting for certain periods of time, fasting from certain foods, but also fasting from other things and activities. Likewise, the giving of alms is some effort to share this world equally—not only through the distribution of money, but through the sharing of our time and talents. Contemplate the meaning and origins of the Lenten fasting tradition in this reflection.

In Lent, the baptized are called to renew their baptismal commitment as others prepare to be baptized through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, a period of learning and discernment for individuals who have declared their desire to become Catholics.

The key to fruitful observance of these practices is to recognize their link to baptismal renewal. We are called not just to abstain from sin during Lent, but to true conversion of our hearts and minds as followers of Christ. We recall those waters in which we were baptized into Christ's death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ.

On these pages, you will find a variety of suggestions and resources to help you "raise up," "sacrifice," and "offer" during this Lent and to embrace your baptismal commitment.

Catholics are also encouraged to make going to confession a significant part of their spiritual lives during Lent.  The U.S. Bishops' statement, "God's Gift of Forgiveness: The Pastoral Exhortation on the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation" can be distributed and shared in parishes.  Dioceses are encouraged to make the sacrament available often during Lent and to use these resources to promote participation.  We also have resources to help individuals who have not been to confession in a while "rediscover" the sacrament.

CRS Rice Bowl

 

Maryknoll School will once again participate in the Catholic Relief Services "Rice Bowl" campaign. During Lent, we are called to fast, pray, and give alms, so it is more than fitting that we live up to our motto, "Noblesse Oblige" and respond to CRS Ricebowl's call,  "What you give up for Lent changes Lives". 

To help with your journey and for more information on CRS Rice Bowl, please see the following links:

May God bless and keep us during this most holy time...
