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.

Sen. David Ige, Duke Aiona, Rep. Takai and Charles Djou visit Maryknoll for WeVoteHawaii Rally

Maryknoll School Spartans vote! On Wednesday, October 22, the school teamed up with WeVoteHawaii to get special guests like Senator David Ige, former Lieutenant Governor Duke Aiona, former Representative Charles Djou, Representative Mark Takai, and Representative Della Au Belatti to visit the school.

Guests were greeted with paper-chain leis made by our grade school students and welcomed with so many smiles. Guests then had the opportunity to speak and interact with the entire student body made up of more than 1,250 students in the Maryknoll Community Center Gym. This WeVoteHawaii Rally was able to set a real impression on the Spartans. As a group, they learned about the importance of voting and civic engagement.

After speaking in the gym to the whole school, our special guests were able to sit down and have a smaller session with the high school senate officers. Those in the room heard about the great benefits that come from becoming a leader, what makes a leader, and what kind of hurdles they may have to overcome when representing a large amount of people. This experience has had an all-around positive impact on the students, staff, faculty, and entire school. Know the value of your vote, and go cast your ballot on November 4!

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.

2014 Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass

December 12, 2014 celebrates Our Lady of Guadalupe, who in December 1531, revealed several miracles on Tepeyac Hill, Mexico.  In honor of that occaison the Maryknoll High School Advanced Spanish class, lead by Profe' Jennifer Bauer, performed a skit and several readings in Spanish. 

The celebrant of the mass, Fr. Allen DeLong, reminds us that Mary (or Our Lady of Guadalupe) does not replace or is put above Jesus. She is honored and remembered like a loved family member whose kindness, love and grace has helped us get closer to Jesus and God. Which is always needed but especially during the Season of Advent. God bless!

A Teacher's African Dream by Abby Underkofler (class of 2000)

"I am SO grateful for the support of the Maryknoll community and all of the alumni!  This has truly been a dream of mine for many years, but after teaching for the last seven in Catholic education, the urge to serve has grown exponentially.  I feel very confident in the program that I've chosen with African Impact.  I did not want a "teach abroad" type of experience, rather I want to be fully immersed in the community that I'm in, and serve them the best that I can.  African Impact strives to sustain the culture and community where volunteers are placed.  Luckily I will be placed at one school for the 6 weeks that I'm there, and I will be able to learn so much from the teachers and students that I will be working with.  I am also excited to work with like-minded volunteers that want to give back to the world in a positive way.

Again, thank you so much for your support!"

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.
