a letter from your

Aloha Seamonkeys! Welcome to the second newsletter of the term! This past month has been pretty busy for me as I work on the behind-the-scenes preparations for this next term, and I’m sure you’re all also busy with exams and whatnot. It’s quite a bittersweet season this year, as we’ve all worked super hard to keep up and adjust with this new online environment. Now it’s May and we’re all about to go onto the next chapter of our lives. Seniors are graduating, we’re going up a grade, and we say (hopefully) goodbye to this online version of our lives. But enough about all this melancholic vibe, let’s talk about some more exciting stuff! As most of you know, I’ve been working hard on sifting through the applications and conducting interviews for our wonderful Division Leadership Team! Although I would’ve loved to be able to appoint them a little bit earlier, their official announcement to all the members will be the highlight of our next DCM! I’m super excited to show them off to the division next month, so please make sure to be on the lookout for news on that! Anyway, I just wanted to say one last thing before I sign off: congratulations! Whether you’re finishing your exams or graduating, there’s something worth celebrating this month. I’m super proud of everything we’ve done this past year and it’s great to be serving you all :D Sincere with Seamonkey Pride,

love letters for literacy For this project I made 2 sets of flashcards of the alphabet, wrote a note, and printed out some fun games to play at home! This project was designed to help children be more interactive with reading and learn to love it. I think that this project was really fun and easy! And it also helps out a lot of kids to get inspired to learn how to read! - Denise Yamauchi

opportunity village

This project was super fun! I really enjoyed making the bookmarks and learning how to make origami again was really relaxing. I loved the way I could turn a normal piece of paper into something so cute and useful! - Denise Yamauchi, on School on Wheels Origami bookmarks

On April 27, I had the pleasure of attending Clark Key Club’s Spring Banquet. Here, spring inductions were held and members got certificates for their hard work. Additionally we formally said goodbye to Ms. Wong after twenty six years of her leading this club. Not a single eye was dry. This also was the first non-virtual event and I was so excited to meet some of you in person! Congrats the members who got inducted and I look forward to seeing everyone next year! - Alexia Rantfl

clark’s spring banquet

The Spring Banquet! Clark Key Club’s first (and last:( ) in-person event of the year! It was so amazing meeting and seeing everyone in the cafeteria to celebrate our difficult, yet fun, term. The IP and current board did an amazing job planning and setting up the entire event. Given all the challenges, Clark Key Club was able to put on one last hurrah as this year’s seniors move on to graduate and Ms. Wong enters retirement. Even though this term was unlike any other, our club did the best we could to honor Ms. Wong and to show our appreciation for all the work she has put into the club for the past 26 years. Ms. Wong, the seniors, the IP board, we will miss you all! - Anqelique Tanaqin

The purpose of these locations is to provide food to anyone in need in our community without having to pay for the food. It is to make sure that no one goes hungry and that we can feed as many people as we can in our city together, as a community. We, the volunteers, brought at least 10 different items of food to a location in order to add to the food stock that they have. I will definitely be volunteering to donate more food again. - Daman Sandhu

My overall experience while volunteering was refreshing. It was our last day painting the fences around the pool, and I felt accomplished that we were able to finally finish it. Though working outside in the hot sun made the process feel quite time-consuming and exhausting, I still enjoyed bonding and having conversations with my friends and other people. We also got to go on the balcony for a change to scrape the old paint off of the fences on the stairs, and the view looked like a painting with the clear blue sky and luscious green grass. The cool gentle breeze gave me the motivation to keep working, and the hard work paid off as we were rewarded with free food in the end. Overall, I thoroughly relished the volunteering experience and would certainly participate again. - Hanae Furugaki
