FROM OUR FACULTY AND STAFF TO OUR KMS FAMILIES

Ms. Lulla (English) – “My hope for this 8th grade class, as they move 
forward with their lives, is that they continue to grow and follow their 
dreams. Making things happen in life takes hard work and dedication 
as well as understanding and humility. I hope that as they continue on 
in their lives and achieve their goals and dreams, they remember to not 
only care for themselves but others as well. The world doesn’t owe you 
anything, you have to earn it, so work hard to get what you want!”

Mr. Mew (Orchestra) – “Aloha Orchestra 8th Graders and congratulations on 
your KMS promotion! Your dedication to music and practice has made you all 
fine musicians. I am very proud of your accomplishments in music here at 
Kawananakoa. Good luck in high school and beyond! Remember to stay humble, 
kind and sincere. The good you do in life comes back to you in many forms.” 

All that you do, do with your might; things done in halves are never done 
right.” – Benjamin Franklin

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!
We say a final aloha to our KMS 8th graders who had an outstanding
school year and celebrated with a memorable promotion ceremony and 
banquet.  Best wishes and continued success as you move on to high 
school!

And to our 6th and 7th graders, enjoy your summer break and 
see you next year!
