Students Learn the Art of Brush Pen Calligraphy

Learning a new language is not an easy task, especially when the language involves characters so different from the English alphabet. Japanese is one such example. ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY Japanese teacher, Sayoko Minami, has been exploring different teaching strategies to help students master this challenging language. Recently, Ms. Minami introduced Grade 9 and 11 students in her Japanese classes to the art of brush pen calligraphy as a way to help them learn different kanji (Chinese characters) in their language studies. In Ms. Minami’s class, the students learned the key points of calligraphy, such as upward brushstrokes, stops, and sweepings. After practicing the basics, the students then traced sheets of different kanji. As the students are learning many new kanji, writing them in calligraphy was good practice for them to be mindful of how each stroke is formed.

The use of brush pens has increased in popularity, especially among adults in Japan, to improve hand writing and/or concentration through writing. Traditionally, brush ink only came in black, but the newest inks now have various colors, and many people post their calligraphy on social media, such as Twitter and Instagram.

Gianna Named ILH Runner of the Year

Gianna Sbarbaro '19 honored as ILH (Interscholastic League of Honolulu) Runner of the Year.

"I am very humbled to have received the recognition as ILH Runner of the year. It was certainly an amazing way to end my senior cross country season," says Gianna. "This accomplishment is especially meaningful to me as well because I've been on the LJA cross country team for 5 years, and all of that time, effort, and dedication helped me to finish the season strong."

Gianna adds, "Something that makes our team unique is that the entire team stays for the whole duration of the meet. People don't just show up for their event and then leave; everyone rides the buses together and cheers for all divisions. For me, seeing my supportive teammates halfway through the race when I wanted to stop really motivated me to keep going."

Thomas Caps '22 Ranked No. 1 in Nation

Thomas Caps '22 just became the third student at Le Jardin Academy to qualify for junior nationals! That's more than any other school in Hawaii! Thomas, Alana Barthel, and Luke Faurot will be headed to Austin, TX in early December to represent the swim team Aulea at the competition. At last week's Bill Smith Invitational, Thomas qualified in the 200 breast, setting a new Hawaii swimming record in the 13-14 age group, and is now ranked No. 1 in the nation in his age group for this event. He also broke a 13-14 record in the 100 breast, breaking a 42-year-old record.

As for what's next for Thomas, "I want to get into a college with a good swim team because from what I can tell, the friendships you make in your teammates, and the facilities that are given to you in college allow you to push yourself to reach new limits." But until then he says, "I like to keep a low profile and focus on the process, instead of getting caught up in my future as an athlete, so as to not set any expectations. Maybe I will make the team. Maybe I won't. Giving up, however, is never an option."

Flexible Furniture for Lower School

All students in Kinder – Grade 5 have flexible learning furniture. This allows for natural collaboration to occur and allows student agency as students choose how to best learn. When students are sitting at isolated, assigned desks, we fail to teach the students to make responsible choices or give them ownership of the classroom community. Flexible seating means students may be lying on the floor, utilizing a floor table to collaborate with a peer or using a stand-up desk to allow for movement. This flexibility allows students to physically decide how they learn best and gives students control to improve student engagement.

Annual Fund Launches

LJA's Annual Fund launched this week, and we invite you to join us with a gift.

Why give?

  • To supplement tuition. Tuition covers only 90% of LJA's operational budget. The Annual Fund is a critical income source to fund LJA's expenses.
  • To support US, LJA's faculty and staff! More than half of LJA's operating budget supports employee salaries and benefits. And LJA invests over $220,000 annually toward professional development. The Annual Funds helps grow these numbers.
  • To elevate the LJA student learning experience. The generosity of our community ensures that LJA continues to offer a variety of programs and opportunities for students.
  • To inspire greater giving. Participation in LJA's Annual Fund sends a strong message of a shared vested interest in LJA's mission as the school seeks funding from major donors, foundations, and our greater community.

Make a gift and make a difference today!

Elementary Principal Recognized by “99 Acts of Aloha”

On Monday, October 15, Elementary Principal Steve Ross was honored with a special certificate and embroidered cap from Route 99 Hawaiʻi’s “99 Acts of Aloha” campaign.

Mr. Ross was nominated for the “99 Acts of Aloha” award by IPA parent Kimberly Vance, mom of Grade 2 student Jaydon. The goal of the campaign is to highlight 99 acts of aloha by giving recognition to individuals and organizations who share aloha on a daily basis, through small and large acts of kindness.

Ms. Vance, in her nomination letter, wrote of Mr. Ross, “He makes an effort to get to know every elementary student and their family by name. He is outside every single morning as students are dropped off, and there is not a single parent who can say their day isn’t better after his morning greetings.”

“He is so committed to the students having their best experience…you can tell how much he cares about the community and the school,” her letter continued.

Mrs. Charlie Teixeira, co-owner of Route 99 Hawaiʻi, came to campus to present the award to Mr. Ross during the Monday Morning Assembly. Jaydon joined her on stage to give Mr. Ross a lei as Mrs. Teixeira read the nomination letter and presented the certificate and special cap.

We can say without question that Mr. Ross shares acts of aloha with the students, parents, faculty, and staff of IPA every single day. And, like Ms. Vance and Jaydon, we appreciate Mr. Ross. Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition, Mr. Ross!

Fall Family Movie Night Brings Coco to IPA

The 3rd annual IPAPA Fall Family Movie Night at IPA was held this past Saturday, October 13. The family-friendly event was a tremendous success! The turnout was amazing, with so many IPA families coming out to enjoy a nice Fall evening of friendship, food, and fun times. There were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained all night – from the costume contest, to the chili cook-off, to the Haunted House, to Disney•Pixar’s Coco on the lawn.

With Halloween right around the corner, the costume contest was a big draw, with many entrants of all ages. Kids and families dressed up and paraded around in their unique costumes before a panel of judges and a cheering crowd in the MPR. There was a jellyfish and a family of Trolls as well as zombies, Wakandans, Snoopy on his dog house, a tiny Pebbles and Bam Bam, and The Incredibles. The judges had the unenviable job of having to select the winners from such a competitive field, and prizes were given out for the best costume in each category – Grade K-2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-12, and Family.

The annual IPA Chili Cook-off is an IPA tradition going back many years. The contest is open to all IPA families, with many returning each year to compete. The chili chefs take the competition seriously, not only spending hours preparing their chili but also decorating their booths. This year’s winners were Laura Smith (Best Decorations), Timora and Lokelani Mitchel (Judges’ Favorite), and John and Pam Peacock (People’s Choice).

The much anticipated Haunted House did not disappoint. Once again, the entire Elementary building was transformed beyond recognition in to the best Haunted House on the west side. Keeping in theme with the movie Coco, the first floor of the building became a stunning and colorful Land of the Dead with characters and scenes from the movie recreated in great detail. To enter the Haunted House, visitors had to first cross over a bridge connecting the Land of the Living to the Land of Dead. Decorated with orange lights and paper tissue flowers, the bridge was just like that depicted in the movie, covered with marigold petals, which are thought to guide the dead back to the Land of the Living. Once inside, visitors were greeted by Miguel and Héctor in front of the Cinema, lit by colorful, swirling lights, and songs from the movie. An elaborate altar with family photos, flowers, candles, and favorite foods was recreated to look just like the movie. Elementary students decorated paper cutouts of white guitars, and these were displayed throughout the first floor and on a special remembrance wall, capped with the words “Remember Me.” There was even a room of fluorescent paintings and a maze to find your way through.

The upstairs of the Haunted House was reserved for those courageous visitors who dared to enter. Black plastic partitions created haunted hallways where ghouls lurked, ready to jump out and grab you. IPA students, parents, and faculty took their scaring roles seriously, dressing the part and bringing their best haunting skills.

The evening’s featured event was the screening of Coco under the stars on the Big Field. Families spread out blankets, set up chairs, and got comfortable for the movie. The evening couldn’t have been any better.

The Fall Family Movie Night is organized and run by IPAPA, the IPA Parent/Teacher Association. IPAPA relies on parent volunteers to help make the event a success. Dozens of parents, faculty, staff, and students volunteered their time to cover the many man-hours of work required to plan, design, construct, man, and tear down the haunted house. IPAPA would like to extend their gratitude to all the volunteers – parents, students, faculty, and staff – who dedicated so much time and effort to make the event a success.

Special thanks to our generous donors who contributed various resources to make this event a great success!
