Band Students Honored by Music Association


On Sunday, February 15, eighth graders Renceh Flojo (8B) and Jamie Lacno (8D) performed in the Oahu Band Directors Association Middle School Select Band concert, in conjunction with the Hawaii Music Educators Association State Conference.


Renceh and Jamie, distinguished trombone players, auditioned to perform in the concert and were selected out of 150 students to be a part of the 70 member Select Middle School Band, which was conducted by Mr. Steven Hirahara. The concert was held at McKinley High School, and was a cumulative production of both the Middle School Select Band and the High School Select Band. This is a very distinct honor, and we at Maryknoll School are so proud to have such talented musicians among us!

Yes, Virginia

yes virginiaMaryknoll School students, fourth through eighth graders, have joined together to put on this season’s holiday performance, “Yes Virginia The Musical.” This original production is based on the true story of 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897, inquiring about the existence of Santa Claus. The production, meant to share a message of love and generosity, is part of the Macy’s “Believe” campaign and their school musical program.

Opening night will be on Sunday, December 14, at 3:00 p.m. in Bachelot Hall, with a closing the next morning on Monday, December 15, at 9:05 a.m. in Bachelot Hall. The production is just a supplement to the entire “Believe” campaign supporting Make-A-Wish®. During the holiday season, Macy’s collects letters to Santa. For every letter collected, they donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, helping to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Bring your letter to Santa to the Santa Mail letterbox in the Macy’s store of your preference.

Join us in watching this season’s performance of “Yes, Virginia The Musical” at Maryknoll School on December 14 and 15. Together, we can ring in the holiday, support the keiki, and spread some compassion.

Students Learn Physics Principles by Constructing Rollercoasters

On November 3rd, Mr. Hickel's freshman physics students built and showcased their very own roller coasters. Combined classes met in the library to create an amusement park right here on campus. The prototype roller coasters allowed the Smart Spartans to demonstrate their knowledge of the different forms of energy. Other teachers came by to hear the students explain their work, along with their ingenious coaster names to include "Coaster Rica," and "The Procrastinator."

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...

Your gift, large or small, makes all the difference

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.

Your support of our annual fund, which goes directly to school programs, is an investment in quality education and ensures continuation of all that makes Maryknoll special.

We're in the home stretch for the 2011-12 Annual Investment in Maryknoll campaign.  We have until the end of June to meet our 2011-12 goal of $425,000.  The education of our Maryknoll children is a partnership - your participation in this mission through your gifts makes all the difference and we see it every day in the faces of our children.
