As we reflect back on the 2010-2011 school year, my heart overflows with gratitude for the support, prayers, kindness, and generosity of the Hanalani Ohana. We, on the Hanalani campus, have the wonderful privilege of investing our talents and energies in the most precious of lives every day of the school year. That is not to say that the day-to-day task is easy; quite the contrary, each day is full of challenges and opportunities. The Hanalani Ohana is a marvelous source of strength and encouragement. Our Ohana extends beyond the campus, beyond the sandy shores of Oahu, and across the mighty Pacific Ocean. Knowing that our Ohana believes in and partners with the administration, faculty, and staff empowers us to be our best for the Lord, the children, and their families. Mahalo for supporting our first Royal Fund, which is making a difference in the lives of our students and the life of our school. As the economy continues to challenge the school and our families, we remain prudent stewards of the funds that we have received —we take a “kids-come-first” approach in providing financial assistance to qualifying families in need. Because of your partnership and generosity, we are able to continue to address campus needs and improve the learning environment and program for the children. Some of the Royal Fund donations supported professional development. Thank you for investing in our teachers. Because we understand that great teachers are the key to a great program, we encourage continual learning through seminars, webinars, and professional literature and challenge our faculty to refine their God-given talents and passions. For the past several years, we have sent a handful of teachers to mainland seminars. They return to the island full of ideas and inspiration. Our teachers are incredibly busy, but they are committed to learning and growing. Our major project for the year is to install a photovoltaic (PV) system. Our vision is to lessen our dependence on electricity and increase our reliance on the powerful rays of the sun. The challenge is the cost of such a system; it appears that a 10-year lease is the most we can do at this time. On another note, what a fantastic opportunity to teach our students about renewable energy and being good stewards of our environment! Mahalo again for your partnership, generosity, and prayers. God is truly good. It is a privilege to invest our energies in young lives.

Mark Y. Sugimoto Head of School

Mission Statement Our primary mission is to train the children “of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10) and provide opportunities for all children to hear and receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. From a Biblical foundation, we strive to develop studentʼs intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities in a wide variety of fields and to lead students to a deeper worship of God and a closer conformity to the image of Christ.

About Hanalani In 1952, Kingʼs Gospel Center purchased property in developing Wahiawa to create a church and school, giving birth to Kingʼs Schools. Two decades later the schoolʼs expansion created a need for a larger campus. In 1973, Kingʼs Schools was incorporated as an independent, non-profit organization aptly named “Hanalani Schools” —“Hana” meaning Work, and “Lani” meaning Heaven. In 1983, the new high school moved to the Mililani campus and the school has been growing ever since. Hanalani Schools is an independent, Christian day school. It is non-denominational and Protestant. A Bible-centered curriculum provides the most effective means and environment to educate the total child mentally, socially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The schoolʼs primary purpose is to see each student accept Christ as personal Savior and disciple their heart by promoting and inspiring their hearts toward Biblical standards of living. The school strives to provide a Hanalani graduate who is a wise person, a balanced individual, a maturing Christian, and a productive citizen.

Servant Leadership This school year, I have really been learning a lot about servant leadership, especially through serving my society. Being a part of the Lambs, we have a really big group to organize. All of the officers have to have a lot of patience with their peers and that is a really important characteristic of a servant.

Even though this year has barely begun, my mindset has already changed. I have starting thinking about others first and of ways that I can help the other members of my society instead of just doing things to benefit myself. Learning about servant leadership has also taught me that I need to really start looking to God and rely on Him. He is the ultimate Leader and I need to go to Him for guidance and leadership. I have also learned about servant leadership through Junior/ Senior Leadership Camp. This camp really impacted my outlook on life and made me see that others really are starting to look up to me, as an upperclassman. In Mark 9, Jesus continuously tells the disciples that the greatest leader must first be the greatest servant. Jesus, the greatest Leader, washed His own disciples’ feet, a job reserved for the lowest servant of all. As a servant leader, I also need to be willing to be a “rope holder.” The background story to this is in Mark 2, when four men get together and help their paralyzed friend by lowering him down from the rooftop to see Jesus. A rope holder should be resilient, opportunistic, passionate, and evangelistic. As a servant leader, I need to put others and God before myself, and seize every opportunity to lead others to my very own Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. by Cricket DeLoach Junior

STEM Lab Upgrades Understanding the quantum mechanical properties of carbon allotropes are just one of the many scientific learning objectives By Winston Sakurai that take place US Principal at Hanalani Schools. A recent focus of the Upper School is to develop and expand the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academy to meet the needs of students. Recent equipment and technology upgrades in the classrooms have enhanced the program, and the next step of creating a professional workspace for students became the driving vision for the school this summer. The new STEM Lab merges elements of a professional laboratory with the traditional classroom instruction environment. With donations from the 2010-11 Royal Fund, new metal cabinetry and chemical-resistant epoxy resin countertops and sinks join the recently added plasma TV display, storage units and chemistry tables. The removal of the previous science stations opened up floor space to allow for furniture to be configured in multiple ways providing collaboration and brainstorming centers while also allowing for hands on laboratory experiments to be conducted. This new STEM laboratory provides opportunities for our students to collaborate and problem solve while also providing workspace to conduct sophisticated science experiments. We hope that our students will represent the best of Christian education by being equipped with the skills they need to be successful in college and their future careers.

ROYAL FUND DONORS Playground & iPads for Early Childhood The Early Childhood students came to school with varied emotions in anticipation of a new school year. But they were all excited to see our new playground structure, play house, climbing animals, and improved sandbox. The added canopy over the play structure made playing more comfortable for the students with less direct sun while enjoying the island breeze. Who knew the monkey bars would be such a big hit? The addition of the playhouse and climbing animals gave the students more playing choices. All these apparatuses allow our students to have fun while developing their motor skills and hand eye coordination. A special thank you to the Samuel N. & Mary Castle Foundation for their generous grant that made the new playground a reality, and for the many donors who contributed to the 2010-11 Royal Fund. In September, K3-K5 teachers received iPads for their classrooms. The teachers created an iPad learning center in addition to their other learning centers. Each class now has incorporated the iPad to aid in student learning. As the teachers find more applications that will enhance classroom learning they will introduce them to the students. The majority of the students are very comfortable with these iPads and want to do more. Students who were introduced to the iPad for the first time have caught on quickly to the concept! They are having fun using the iPads by tracing, matching, counting, listening, and reviewing colors, shapes, numbers, letters, and much more. Teachers and students are excited about the many opportunities the iPads bring to the classroom. by Gwendolyn Nakamoto EC Director/EL Principal

Engaged Students Excited, engaged students! That is what the Royal Fund has helped produce in the Elementary Division.   Our division used Royal Fund monies to place new picnic tables in our break area and eight iPads in first through third grade classrooms.   In September, students were excited to see five shiny picnic tables in our elementary playground and break area. During recess and after school care, they enjoy sitting at these tables to socialize with their peers as they munch on snacks or play games.  Grandparents and parents often partake in conversations, a book, or a snack throughout the school day at these new tables. First through third grade teachers incorporated the iPads into their learning centers during reading time. One first grade classroom makes sure that each student uses the device at least once a week. Students choose to engage in either a spelling or a math application. Another teacher has her students sign up on a board and wait their turn to use their iPad during center time. The teacher finds that the students can use the same application, Monkey Math, over and over and still remain engaged. She is excited that they are enjoying themselves while building a solid foundation of basic math skills. Royal Fund monies have made a direct, immediate, and visible impact in the Elementary Division. The fund has provided tools that help us enhance our students’ school experiences by giving them an improved break area and better ways to be enby Bonnie Lee gaged in their le EL Vice Principal learning. We are so blessed and thankful for all those who donate to our school’s Royal Fund!

Athletics Gets an Upgrade The Athletic Department was truly blessed this year through the generous giving of the Royal Fund. The AthKeoni Haole letic Department byAthletic Coach used the funds to create two meeting rooms for all athletic teams. The first meeting room in the Student Activities Center (SAC) was designed to be a team meeting area that would be Hanalani’s home locker room. This room is equipped with wood cabinets, steel shelves, training table, and an interactive projector. The wood cabinets and steel shelves provide much needed storage space for medical supplies, uniforms, and other athletic equipment, which allows for easier access, and also allows our team meetings to be more efficient because everything is in one location. The new training table helps coaches tape injuries faster and more efficiently. The interactive projector allows coaches to use various teaching and training methods and resources to develop players to their highest athletic potential. It also makes it easy to view game film and training videos on the internet with the entire team. The second meeting area is located in the lobby area in the SAC and was designed to be used for coaches’ meetings and as a visitors’ locker room. This room has a mounted big screen television used by coaches to formulate better game strategies by watching game film and training videos. Overall, the Royal Fund greatly benefited the athletic department. The equipment that was purchased has already positively impacted school spirit and the development of our student athletes. Thank you to all that donated money and time. We will continue to use the Royal funds to positively influence student athletes for Christ and improve our athletics program.

P.E. Department The PE Department purchased a variety of sport and activity equipment to increase by Richard De Lizo the equipmentP.E. Dept. Head to-student ratio, promote maximum student participation, and provide new teaching objectives and replaced old and worn out equipment. New P.E. equipment includes footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, softballs, softball gloves, softball bats, volleyballs, and dodge balls. Also activity equipment that will generate new teaching objectives includes scooter boards, juggling cubes, large activity balls, “Character-Ed” playground sets, pop-up soccer goals, jump ropes, and table tennis pack. The students are very excited by the new things they get to play with and learn, and the teachers are looking forward to challenging their students even more in their physical development.


Fine Arts Department

In the summer of 2011, Hanalaniʼs Botball team flew to California to compete in the International Botball Tournament. The team had a mission in mind: to defend their championship title from the previous year.

The Fine Arts Department was privileged to receive a pug mill with the Royal Fund donations. This pug mill comes at a critical time as we are in need of “reclaiming” much of our clay. This machine will enable the clay classes to reuse clay. In the process of ceramics much clay goes to waste, which is normal when practicing clay work. In an effort to increase our efficiency we requested the pug mill to mix all that waste clay back into usable clay. In a normal ceramics class we can go through 500-600 pounds of clay per semester! Much of this clay is unusable due to practice or mistakes. We can now reuse all that clay and not have to purchase as much for the next class. While by Chris Salter Art Teacher we will still have to purchase more clay, however, this will definitely cut back on the amount we will need.

Under the leadership of Coach Chenfu Chiang, the team got off to a fast start by registering the two highest scores in the precision seeding rounds, beating their opponents by hundreds of points. The team scored perfect on their documentation and finished second in the double elimination rounds. The team went on to win the best engineering award given by the panel of judges. Hanalani was declared the Overall Champion of the 2011 International Botball tournament bringing home the trophy. Team members this year who competed in the tournament were Remington Fox, Evan Kawamura, David Nakamoto (team captain), Jonathan Neumann, and James Thayne. The Botball tournament this coming year will be held in Oahu, HI and our team is excited about defending their title on their home turf. Congratulations to the 2011 Botball team on their outstanding accomplishments!

Number One Priority Over the course of this year, God has been teaching me a lot of things. It may only be the end of first quarter, but I have grown more these couple months in my spiritual life than I have in a very long time. Several things helped contribute to this: the main thing being both Junior/ Senior leadership camp and SEW (Spiritual Emphasis Week), taught by Pastor Tate Throndson. Another thing that has helped me so far is my Ethics class that is taught by Mr. Vanaman. I feel like this class is going to be one of the most important classes I will ever take. But enough of the hows, I’m here to talk about what God has taught me. The major thing that God has been teaching me over, and over, and over again this year, is that I need Him to be my number one priority. I’ll be honest with you: God wasn’t the most important thing in my life for a while. I was prioritizing other things like friends and music, and I wasn’t really paying all that much attention to my spiritual life. But God has been telling me to focus back on Him. It’s a challenge, and I know that I’m nowhere near perfect, but now I’m actually trying to make God number one in my life. Because in the end, nothing else really matters.
