Kauai Pacific School offers a vibrant, diverse and sustainable learning community that gets kids excited about their future.  Nearly 50% of our students receive financial assistance, thus tuition income covers only 68% of our operating expenses.

Kauai Pacific School is proud to offer a project based curriculum – which means that the children are learning HOW to learn

2010 2011 Curriculum

Kauai Pacific School is 1 of only 19 schools statewide that received the Schools of the Future of Grant – this grant improves technology so we can can be a model school for the Hawaii public school system.

Professor Jim Dator told us that he had selected Kauai Pacific School for this project because of our balance between sustainability and digital literacy. When discussing our themed inquiry methodology he commented, “I like your interdisciplinary, interactive, and intercultural approach.”
Gifts to our annual fund go directly to the Kauai Pacific School Faces of the Future scholarship program which awarded almost $100,000 in scholarships this year.

5th and 6th Graders Help Facilitate Lunch at the Salvation Army:
Our 5th and 6th grade students and their families purchased the food for a meal made by the students at the Salvation Army in Lihue.  The class has been studying about fairness, equality and justice and for their final project prepared a meal for those who need it.  They cooked for and served about 60 people.  The meal was healthy and tasted great. Way to support your community boys!

Also, our 3rd-6th Grade Participated in Native Plantings at Kauai Historical Garden Mini-Golf Course.

KPS Friday Market Is Every Friday! blog/2010/10/01/kps-friday-market-is-every-friday/ blog/2010/10/01/kps-friday-market-is-every-friday/#comments Fri, 01 Oct 2010 18:18:07 +0000 Robin Avina ?p=134 ...Read the Rest]]> Last weeks market was a wonderful success!  Together we raised almost $200.00.  What a kick start we have had!  In lue of depending heavily on parent volunteers to help run the market we are shifting to a ‘student led market”.  As part of their kokua, rotating student coordinators from each class will be hosting the KPS Friday Market each week after Aloha Circle.   We would like to invite all parents to participate in the ‘Market Concept Group’ which will steer and brainstorm for the growing market.   The group will meet on Wednesday mornings after drop-off in the morning in the outdoor market location.  In addition, we encourage all families of ALL grades to bring donations each week.

Donations can be left on the front porch Friday mornings or brought in at pick-up time.  The market will take place in front of the school.

Here are some guidelines for what we will be selling at market:

  • All Kauai grown, fresh produce is welcome; especially surplus from your own yard.
  • Homemade cooked or baked products. (Please EXCLUDE refined ingredients.  This way our kids can practice preparing healthy food that is locally grown!)
  • Homemade/Kauai made arts and crafts.  (Again, any of these are welcome if they are made on Kauai.  No store bought items please.)
  • In addition, please do your best to use renewable resources and avoid plastic.

With so much enthusiasm building for the 2010-2011 Market season we ought to be brimming with abundance in many forms! We hope to see you there!
