Thursday, Dec. 8th. - 8:08 am We are currently under a tsunami watch due to an earthquake in the Solomon Islands this morning. Both the school and the Convention Hall where our students are traveling to for the KPAC plays are both in tsunami safe areas. We will reevaluate the situation this afternoon before buses leave at the end of the day. Mahalo!
Congratulations to all of our spelling bee participants this year for a job well done! 33 students courageously took part in our annual spelling bee and two students made it through 13 rounds to get to the end. Congratulations go out to 6th grader Haley Arakaki for taking 1st place, and 7th grader Matthew Rivera for being our runner up. Both students will represent CKMS in the Kauai District Spelling Bee coming up later this year. We also want to thank teachers Emma Borg and Ashten Metcalf for tutoring our students during recess and lunch over the past several weeks and for organizing our bee.
