July 2019 Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act Notification

The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires our school to notify parents, faculty, and staff of the presences and status of asbestos-containing materials in school buildings. The law further requires a management plan based on the findings of the initial inspection. We are fortunate as Mililani Middle School does not have any asbestos-containing materials in our school buildings. Please contact Vice Principal Jacob Kardash or Greg Nakasone for additional information.

IPA Navigator Robotics Team Qualifies for State Championship

ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY’s Navigator Robotics (Team #4442X) had tremendous success under new robotics coach, Jeff Sumitani (IPA Technology Specialist), at the ESPN Honolulu Sports Festival VEX Robotics Challenge on Saturday, June 16 . The Navigators took home first place in every category – Tournament Championship and Robot Skills Champion awards – instantly qualifying them for the State Championship.

The event kicked off the 2019-2020 season as the first tournament in the world using the new VEX challenge – “Tower Takeover.” This new challenge was introduced only seven weeks ago so the team did not have a lot of time to design, build, program, and develop a strategy before the tournament. In addition, the team did not receive their practice field so they tested their robot at Waianae Intermediate School a week before the competition.

IPA’s Navigator Robotics Team #4442X is comprised of David Pavlicek ’20, Nathan Okimoto ’22, Zaheer Gulko ’22, and Ryan Corpuz ’22. The team members have worked tirelessly, even while studying for finals, and their efforts paid off this weekend.

Following the qualifying round, the IPA Navigators were ranked third (7-3 win/loss record). Perennial powerhouse Pearl City High School (Team #4142B) invited IPA to be in their alliance and the team graciously accepted. The alliance faced the St.Louis Crusaders (Team #42700D) and the other Pearl City High School team (Team #4142A) in the finals. Although the single elimination playoff final match had to be restarted after some technical difficulties, the alliance held off a strong charge to come up with a dramatic 41-39 win.

IPA was well represented at the tournament, with IPA alumni and former team members present. Robyn Cabuslay, former IPA robotics coach, volunteered to help mentor the Navigators, and Colton Okimoto ’18 served as referee. Former IPA student Josh Kuakini placed second in both the team event and skills challenge events for his current team. Josh may have been on a new school team, but the lasting bond between the robotics members had them rooting for each other throughout the tournament and practicing together in the weeks leading up to the weekend. This great show of sportsmanship and camaraderie was inspiring and something to be very proud about.

Next up is a VEX VRC Signature Event, the Mark Leon Invitational, to be held July 15-18, at St. Louis School. This prestigious tournament already has teams from Pennsylvania, Minnesota, California, Texas and China entered. This event will send at least one team to the World Championships in the mainland.

For more information about the event, visit the tournament website.

The Navigator Robotics team is grateful for the continued support of the IPA community.

School Year 2019-2020 First Day FAQs

Below are some questions most often asked by parents and students. 

Where do students report to on the first day of school?
All 6th graders are to report to the cafeteria by 8:20 a.m.  All 7th graders are to report to F Building and all 8th graders to G Building (see below). 

Where can I drop off and pick up my child?
You can drop off and pick up your child in our main parking lot off Lehiwa Drive.  You are NOT allowed to drop off or pick up your child in our bus lane off Kuaoa Street.  Anticipate a very busy parking lot in the mornings and afternoons; plan accordingly.  

Pull up as far as possible into the loading zone.  Always drop off your child curbside in the morning.  Please utilize the main parking lot if your child has to unload instruments, projects, etc.

In the afternoon, students are asked to wait for their rides in front of H Building (PE).  

Consider picking up your child 20-30 minutes after the school bell when the parking lot empties.  Be safe, courteous, patient, and always use your blinkers to signal your intentions.

Screen+Shot+2019-05-17+at+4.16.11+PM.png (204×118)
Loading Zone at 2:55 p.m.

Does my student need an ID Card?
YES! All students should wear their ID card when on campus. ID cards are also used for purchasing meals, borrowing of library books, taking Accelerated Reader tests and participating in student events.

If my student was receiving Meal Benefits from the previous school year, do I still need to apply this year? 
YES! Meal Benefit Applications should be done annually. Meal Benefits will carry-over for the first 30 days of school if you were receiving benefits at the end of the previous year. For a quicker response, we recommend that you apply online. A link to the website application is available at the school’s website. Hard copies of the actual application will be available during the first week of school.

How can I check on my student's meal account balance?  Can I deposit money in my student's account online?
You can check your student's meal account balance by creating a parent account here.  By doing so, you can also deposit money into your student's account online (optional).  Instructions to set up your account can be found on our school website. If not, you/your student can deposit monies into the account by bringing cash/check to the school office during school hours.  Please affix the deposit slip to your check (payable to Department of Education) or cash.

How will I know if my student qualifies for bus transportation?
Your residence should be at least 1.5 miles away from Mililani Middle School. Bus applications are available at the MMS front office or download a copy here. Bus applications/payment will be accepted at the MMS office during the Fee Payment Window (May 6-June 14, 2019). In addition, Robert’s Hawaii Bus Company will be at the MMS cafeteria on Friday, July 5th from 9:00am – 3:00pm to answer in-person questions and receive applications/payments.

As part of the Hawaii State Department of Education's ongoing effort to modernize Hawaii's pupil transportation system, the Student Transportation Services Branch has launched a bus stop locator/bus schedule information web application Infofinder i, which can be found at www.hawaiischoolbus.com.  This system enables parents and school officials to search for the nearest school bus stop to a home address.  The system also provides morning pick-up and afternoon drop-off times for all school grade levels.

How will I know if my student qualifies for free bus service?
All bus riders are required to pay the transportation fee (except those who are eligible and approved for Free lunch and, therefore, qualify for free bus transportation).

When should my student bring in their school supplies?
All supplies should be brought in on the first day of school and given to their Core 1 teacher who will distribute accordingly.

Can my student purchase the yearbook later in the year?
YES! The purchase of the yearbook (possibly for a higher cost) will be available throughout the school year.

What if my student will not be in attendance on the first day of school?
Please advise the MMS office in advance of the absence (via phone call or note), so we are aware of the situation and of the length of the absence. If the absence will be for 5 days or more, please complete the “Notification of Extended Absence Form” available at the front office. 

When will I know what my student’s classes are?
Students will receive their schedule on the first day of school (see “First Day of School’ Pick-Up Location flyer) and teachers will explain how to read their schedule that day. In addition to their schedule, students will receive their ID photo, planner and additional items for parent/guardian to review and/or sign. Those items that require a parent/guardian signature should be promptly completed and returned to the student’s Core 1 teacher by the following day.

What is the procedure to change an elective class?
MMS makes every attempt to accommodate the top elective choices for each student. Elective courses selected by students during the registration period impact resource and staff allocations for the year. As a result, students will be held accountable for their elective choices and will be asked to remain committed to their selections.

12th Annual IPA Golf Tournament Wrap Up

Mahalo to all the golfers who came out for ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY’s 12th Annual Golf Tournament and helped make it a big success! This year’s tournament, held  at the Hawaiʻi Prince Golf Club on May 16, 2019, sold out even before the registration deadline, with more than 150 golfers, 21 tournament sponsors, and 7 in-kind sponsors participating. The event raised more than $30,000 in support of the IPA Athletics Department and other programs.

It was a fun-filled day with much to keep the golfers entertained before, during, and after their round. Before heading out to the course, golfers enjoyed lunch by Kalapawai Market and loosened up with free chair massages by Rebound Hawaiʻi. They also had fun participating in the putting contest for a chance to win some great prizes.

On the course, golfers were kept full and hydrated with food and beverage stations hosted by Tropics Ale House, Superb Sushi, Big Island Burritos, and Island Real Estate Pros, and a well-stocked roving beverage cart. On-course contests kept the competition lively, including closest-to-the-pin, longest drive, and the hole-in-one on two of the par-3 holes with a chance to win a trip to the Superbowl or the Masters.

The tournament was followed by a dinner buffet and awards banquet with raffle drawings for fabulous prizes, including a two-night stay at Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club with airfare, two nights at the Ritz-Carlton Waikīkī, rounds of golf at Hoakalei Golf Club, a Yeti cooler, Ping golf bags, and a custom stainless steel grill. Every player received a raffle ticket with their entry fee, but many increased their chances of winning by purchasing additional raffle tickets by the arm’s-length before the round. The players with the longest arms found themselves to be very popular, and volunteers shared techniques to get an extra couple of inches to their strip of tickets.

One of the traditions of the IPA Golf Tournament is how teams are selected for prizes. Years back, tournament organizers decided to honor meaningful dates for IPA by the team awards given out. This year, in addition to recognizing the usual top place finishers, prizes were also given to the teams who came in 12th, 19th, and 24th place, representing the 12th year of the tournament, the Class of 2019, and the 24 students making up this year’s graduating class, respectively. Congratulations to the winning team of Donna Smallwood, Nick Smallwood, Kerstin Alston, and John Sego who shot a net score of 40.4! Their names will be added to the IPA Golf Tournament perpetual trophy.

IPA Director of Advancement, Be-Jay Kodama, was pleased with the tournament success and grateful for the assistance of all the volunteers who help plan and run the tournament. “Thank you to the many volunteers – from the seniors of the class of 2019, to IPA Golf Tournament Committee members Kerstin Alston (IPA Parent ’25) and Donna Smallwood (IPA Parent ’22, ’24), and all the IPA parents, grand-parents, coaches, and administrators who gave of their time and shared the IPA spirit,” said Kodama. “Your spirit shined!”

Head of School, Gerald Teramae, echoed her sentiments. “Mahalo to the many supporters, volunteers (students and adults), faculty, and staff of our 12th annual golf tournament,” he shared. “Your support and hard work for our golf tournament will greatly impact the opportunities our student-athletes are afforded through our 22 athletic sports.”

“We look forward to seeing everyone for next year’s tournament!” added Teramae.

As graduation approaches, a KHIS alum and UH electrical engineering senior has no regrets about attending University of Hawaii

One University of Hawaii at Manoa senior set to walk on stage Saturday at the 108th commencement ceremony recalled how she initially had her mind set on a mainland college. But now she says she wouldn’t change her decision if she had to do it all over again. Sasha Yamada graduated from Kahuku High School in 2015 as a valedictorian and wanted to leave Hawaii and attend any mainland college.

Grade 4 Learns About Bicycle Safety with Hawai’i Bicycling League

Grade 4 teachers Nicole Ogimi and Sa’o Faulkner brought BikeEd Hawaiʻi to their students through a week long bicycle safety program which aims to teach children how to ride safely in their neighborhoods and communities.  The program, open to grade 4 students across Oʻahu, is sponsored by Hawaiʻi Bicycling League.  The Hawaiʻi Bicycling League receives grants from the City and County of Honolulu as well as the Department of Transportation to bring the program at no cost to schools.  While students are welcome to bring in their own bicycles and helmets to participate in the program, BikeEd provides bikes, helmets and safety vests for the students to use.

Throughout the five days, the BikeEd instructors taught the Grade 4 students bike safety and how to perform a bike safety check.  The students also got to hone their cycling skills and balance on a practice course set up with cones on the basketball court. For some students, it was a chance for them to start to learn how to ride a two-wheeler. A highlight for the students was getting to ride their bikes together through the neighborhood around ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY.

In addition to helping students learn bike safety, the program aligns well with the Blue Zones Project of Kapolei/Ewa, which IPA supports and participates in.  The Blue Zones Project is a community-based well-being improvement initiative that uses scientifically proven lessons of longevity, health, and happiness to create vibrant communities and boost the well-being of their residents. Ogimi and Faulkner hope that participation in BikeEd Hawai’i might help encourage the students, and their families, to choose to ride their bikes more often (rather than always riding in a car), which contributes to an active and healthy lifestyle.  The activity is also builds upon Grade 3’s “Healthy Choices” unit.  The Grade 4 students had so much fun getting to ride their bikes with their friends, and they got a lot of time outside in the sun and fresh air. This is an annual program that the Grade 4 students participate in.

IPA Athletics Hosts Third Annual Athletic Banquet

ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY held its third annual Athletic Banquet on April 28, 2019 at the Kroc Center Hawaiʻi in Kapolei. The yearly banquet recognizes all student athletes in grades 7-12 for their participation and athletic achievements during the 2018-2019 school year. Nearly 350 student athletes and their immediate families turned out for the event, which included a buffet dinner, certificate presentations, and prize give-aways.

IPA Director of Athletics, Greg Terhune, hosted the evening’s program and kept things lively and fun with entertaining anecdotes and raffle prizes interspersed with the certificate presentations. All 145 athletes from the Fall, Winter, and Spring sports were called up individually to the stage to receive their recognition from their respective coaches.

As with previous years, the raffle prizes were a big hit with the students. Each student athlete was given entry to the raffle prize drawing, with a chance to win one of the many great prizes including Bluetooth speakers, wireless headphones, an Amazon Fire Stick, a surfboard from Surfboard Factory Hawaiʻi, a classic Atari game console, and gift certificates from Coral Crater, Dolphin Quest, and Ka Makana Ali’i. A couple of lucky parents even got a chance to take something home this year through the parents’ raffle.

The highlight of the night was a special appearance by UFC mixed martial artist, Yancy Medeiros, who is also an IPA parent to Kaya Gabriele-Medeiros ’24. Medeiros shared some inspiring words with the student athletes about growing up on the West side, the importance of commitment and work ethic, and the necessity of stepping outside your comfort zone in order to grow and move forward – in sports, and in life. He was also gracious enough to pose with the long line of students (and parents) excited to get a photo with the UFC welterweight fighter.

“It was such a fun evening for everyone. Recognizing the student athletes for their hard work, accomplishments, and commitment to IPA is always special,” said Terhune. “Having Yancy here to talk to the athletes and families just made the entire evening better.”

Special thanks to the Kroc Center Hawaiʻi and their banquet staff for hosting a beautiful event, Hawaiʻi Surfboard Factory, Dolphin Quest Oʻahu, Target, Coral Crater, BSN Sports, and an anonymous parent for their donations of prizes. Thank you to Yancy Medeiros for bringing your aloha spirit to our families, and a special thank you to Lisa Dalida for her amazing craft work on the centerpieces.

Each student athlete received a special certificate of participation, letter, and pin for their sport at the end of the banquet. Some of the athletes and coaches who earned special recognition this year were:

  • Girls’ Varsity Volleyball team – ILH Division III Champions
  • Boys’ Intermediate Basketball team – ILH Division III Champions
  • Kira Merl (’19) – Spectrum OC 16 Impact Player of the Match, September 20
  • Stan Vincent (Coach) – Girls’ Volleyball, ILH Division III Coach of the Year
  • Kristin Chun (’22, Bowling) – HHSAA Bowling Representative
  • Denton Chun (Coach) – KSSK Coach of the Week, September 17-23
  • Luke Garcia (’21, Football) – HHSAA Football Representative (PAC-5)
  • Chad Schmidt (’22, Football) – HHSAA Football Representative (PAC-5)
  • Corbin Lofton (’20, Swimming) – HHSAA Swimming Representative; Hawai’i State Runner-Up (100 fly); ILH Swimming Second Team
  • Caysee Aki (’21, Basketball) – ILH Division III Girls’ First Team
  • Sydni Manuel (’19, Soccer) – HHSAA Soccer Representative (PAC-5)
