Catch the Wind Weekly Bulletin

A Message from Principal Fraser

Our first week back from break was sure busy! On Wednesday, we had our Geography Bee for students in grades 4-6. Congratulations to all the contestants who participated (shown below). Izzy from grade 4 will represent `Aikahi in the State Geography Bee on April 1st. Congratulations Izzy, and good luck!


On Thursday, the 5th and 6th graders displayed their Science Fair projects in the cafeteria. Thank you to all the parents, teachers, and community members volunteered to judge the projects. We'd like to recognize the 5th Grade Science Fair award winners: Jack, Mary, Christian, Liv, Isabelle, and Angele. Congratulations on your hard work! The 6th grade winners will move onto the Windward District Science Fair on Friday, January 29th. Congratulations to Mia, Taylor, Noah, Kahiapo, Max, and Alana! Pictures to come in next week's email!
