We are excited for the return of our boys & girls varsity basketball teams! It has been a long-awaited two years since our students and coaches have been back to compete on the court. Tonight's season-opening games include a double-header at home for the boys and our first away game for our Lady Spartans!
🏐 Huge #SpartanShoutout to our Class of 2022 senior libero, Rozalynn Cabuena, on being named this year’s ILH Girls Volleyball Division II Player of the Year alongside her teammates who also achieved First Team and Honorable Mentions this season!
📣 DAY 1 IS A WRAP 🤝 Mahalo to all our students, moderators, and alumni speakers for making our first Spartan Career Day a success! Grades 6-12 were able to participate in a dynamic panel of alumni speakers to help them learn about becoming future leaders and global citizens.
Micaiah Cape '22 is Noblesse Oblige in action! An academic in his own rite, Cape published an article in psychiatrist.com titled "Astronomical Use of Nitrous Oxide Associated With Stress From the COVID-19 Pandemic and Lockdown". At Maryknoll School, Cape is pursuing a certificate in STEM in the Maryknoll Pathway program.
Today, our 5th graders shared a virtual tour exchange with Naragakuen School in Japan. The students at Naragakuen shared through a WebEx virtual meeting their beautiful campus, followed by the Maryknoll students sharing this campus tour video.
This event marks the first in a year-long cultural exchange, a partnership that the two schools have been fostering since 2013. Maryknoll School prioritizes not only learning about other cultures but empathizing and creating a space where multiculturalism is celebrated.
Aloha Spartans, we have been looking forward to this day as we welcomed our students back on campus for the 2021 - 2022 school year. We can't wait for all the exciting memories we will make together as a community as we continue to stay #SpartanStrong!
My son Brennan Yamaguchi, Class of 2027, had learned about Maryknoll’s motto Noblesse Oblige (“To whom much is given, much is expected”), through service projects with his class, and listened to character lessons from his teachers. So when he heard one of his classmates had epilepsy, he felt a personal responsibility to spread awareness and friendship so she would not feel alone in the fight.
The Maryknoll Sisters who founded our school believed in service to others. For them, service was more than just volunteering a few hours here and there a couple of times per year. It was a paradigm that guided their actions and decisions to seek the greatest benefit for others and create positive change in our community.
As the world becomes increasingly globalized, the benefits of being multilingual are constantly increasing. You may have heard that an educational model calledimmersionis spreading throughout the U.S. that offers families the option of an immersive approach to learning a new language that increases children's cognitive development and supports bilingual fluency from a young age.
