Aloha Jefferson Ohana,
Your Administrative T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More!); Principal Garret Zakahi, Counselor Jennifer Ichiyama and Vice Principal George Sanqui were fortunate this Wednesday morning, to visit and tour the Next Step Shelter located in Kakaako to raise awareness on the plight of some of our students and families as well as to donate school supplies to Keiki in need.
"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit." ~Nelson Henderson
Volunteers give their time, energy and wisdom to projects and causes that they sincerely care about. As a school community, we rely on partnerships that are driven by the passion and dedication of selfless & caring individuals to help make our work of educating our Keiki possible.
We are profoundly grateful to 4th grade parent (Mrs. Chun’s class), Mr. Aka Kanahelehele-Oclinaria, Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner and Mr. Lacona; who are giving of their knowledge, inspiration, time and energy to help care for our (Rotary Club sponsored) school garden and helping to bring it back to life!
