Maureen Madden A Message from


Aloha Seabury Hall Community,

In August of 2021 we launched our guiding message to the community of Be the Learner. We could not have imagined at that time how much this message would truly be a guide to each and every Spartan throughout the entire school year. In each Olinda Monday, we highlighted the discoveries we made on a weekly basis. We used this learning to help guide ourselves and our community of learners through unprecedented times. Covid caution was still very much a part of our world but we discovered that by continuing to Be the Learner we were able to achieve more than we could have ever anticipated during challenging times.

We started the school year with a brand new Grade 5 program and enthusiastically welcomed the youngest members of Seabury Hall into our vibrant community. Even without the addition of a grade level, our enrollment unexpectedly soared. We developed a partnership with the wonderful Assistance Dogs of Hawaii and contributed to a clinical study on canine Covid detection. Sadie, the beautiful yellow Labrador retriever, spent several days at Seabury Hall as part of the study and more importantly as a loving, calming, and positive support to students as they coped with the unique experiences of another Covid year.

There are many accomplishments from the 2021-2022 school year that our community can be proud of. Yet, the greatest accomplishment is how we embraced the spirit of Be the Learner in the midst of considerable change and uncertainty. Our school's commitment to remain curious, teachable, and above all, hopeful is what truly sets Seabury Hall in a class of its own.

To the many donors who gave so generously to our school, I want to say thank you. It is because of you that wonderful things continue to be achieved at Seabury Hall. We are grateful for your belief in us and for choosing to use your generosity to ensure our students develop into learners well beyond the campus of Seabury Hall.

Warmly, Maureen O. Madden Head of School

Seabury Hall Launches Maui's Only AP Capstone Diploma Program

16 graduates from the class of 2022 earned the College Board AP Capstone Diploma

In the 2021-2022 school year, Seabury Hall established Maui’s first and only AP Capstone Diploma program. Built on the foundation of AP Seminar and AP Research courses, it is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth study experienced in other AP courses and equips students with independent inquiry, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills.

In AP Seminar, students form groups and identify multiple solutions for a real-world issue. In developing their solutions, students investigate issues from multiple perspectives and analyze information from various sources in order to develop credible and

valid evidence-based arguments. “It teaches them to think and work independently,” said Laura Gerken, AP Seminar Instructor. “In the first semester, I give students a plethora of feedback in order to help them develop their critical thinking and inquiry skills. However, as the year progresses, students take charge of those processes.” In the second semester, instructors are allowed to provide feedback in some areas, but cannot provide direct written or verbal feedback on the College Board assessment. “My role is to provide students with resources, but they must develop the ability to direct their own inquiry and collaborate with their peers in order to successfully complete the course,” Gerken said.

TOP L-R: Aina Sunshine-Frazier ’22 explored the effects of complementary and alternative canine therapy for high school students. Agustina Hunzkier ’23 worked in the field with the Maui Nui Seabird Recovery Project to assess its impact on the conservation of the Hawaiian Petrel. BOTTOM L-R: Carter Rosenthal ’23 analyzes data to determine if Maui drivers misperceive the environmental benefits of electric vehicles. Lyn Chen ’22 creates samples to examine Taxiphyllum Barbieri as a potential Phosphorus accumulator. Camry Gach ’22 spoke with watershed conservation manager, Kim Thayer ’02 about the perceived value of water resources in Maui.

After AP Seminar, students move on to AP Research. In this course, students identify a gap in knowledge in a topic they’re interested in and choose a research question to explore throughout the semester. Some of the topics chosen by the inaugural class included examining Maui tax law and exploring the efficacy of therapy dogs. “Capstone courses are unique in that they challenge students to understand the power of questions and to take an active role in their own learning,” said Jamie Archer, AP Research Instructor. “Instead of having a teacher precisely guide each step, students are responsible for identifying questions, researching possible solutions, and presenting their findings to their peers. They learn that education doesn’t stop with a paper, or course but extends into action–what can be done with this information I’ve worked so hard to uncover? How can I make a difference?”

The program culminates in the creation of a graduate-level paper and an oral defense presentation. Students who successfully earn a score of 3 or more in AP Seminar, AP Research, and four additional AP courses are eligible for the AP Capstone Diploma. Students who choose not to take any additional AP courses but successfully complete the two foundational courses earn the AP Seminar and Research Certificate. “Earning either the diploma or certificate is an elite academic achievement but more than that, it demonstrates the exceptional self-discipline and resilience of each student,” Archer said. Gerken is quick to agree that students in the program reap rewards that go far beyond academics: “Going through this program truly helps students to become better citizens of society. They learn to spark their own curiosity,

become comfortable looking at different mediums and develop a discerning eye for determining the credibility of resources. The entire experience is so empowering for them. Students have told me this is the most important class they’ve taken. At 15, 16 years old, they are learning to research, question the credibility of things they read, and ponder what's being said.”

The program has already done much to empower its inaugural group of graduates. “The AP Capstone program challenged me in ways I needed to be challenged, and helped me to feel confident in my work,” Nikki Fernando ’22 said. “The steps that helped guide me through AP Research also apply to some of the courses I’m now taking as a college student, and I feel more than prepared to approach things head-on. I highly encourage any student, who has the opportunity, to enroll in the program.”

As the program heads into its second year, it will welcome a new group of approximately 48 students into the fold. Archer perfectly sums up the experience by comparing it to rock climbing. “In the past, I’ve taught kids to rock climb. It was mostly me making suggestions as to where they could go as a next step,” Archer said. “My role was to keep them safe and offer guidance but they were free–and encouraged–to find their own way to the top. As an AP instructor, the goal is the same. I am always there to help but ultimately the choice belongs to the student.”

AP Capstone Diploma and AP Capstone Certificate awardees were honored at a school assembly on August 15, 2022.

Seabury Hall Students Earn Top Scholastic Art Honors

In March 2022, Seabury Hall art students Linda Schmitt ’22 and Isabel Farwig ’23 took top spots in the Scholastic Art Awards program the nation's preeminent organization for recognizing teen creative achievement. Schmitt's work, Transience earned the Gold Key Award in the painting category with Farwig's painting, Flying Pigs, garnering an Honorable Mention. “It is quite an honor to be selected for these awards,” said Lenda McGehee, Upper School Fine Arts Instructor. “Students from across the state submit their work to the Hawai‘i Regional Scholastic Art Awards and the level of talent exhibited by these students is incredible. We are extremely proud of not only Linda and Isabel, but of all our students for dedicating themselves to their craft and for representing Seabury Hall so well.” The competition is judged by a group of jurors from the arts and arts-education industries. Works are typically evaluated on the basis of technical and conceptual strength, and creative originality. Winning pieces are displayed in the Hawaii State Art Museum for a month after the exhibition and go on to compete for national recognition in the National Scholastic Art Awards.

When asked about the strength of work produced by Seabury Hall students, McGehee credits the foundational practices of the fine arts program. “In every class our goal is to help students not only develop technical proficiency, but also analytic and critique skills,” she said. “It is important for them to understand how to develop a good idea and how to both give and receive constructive criticism of their work.” On the other end of the spectrum, McGehee says there is also plenty of opportunity for creative freedom and originality. Students are encouraged to explore the different movements, styles, and schools of thought in an effort to help them develop their own point of view and artistic perspective.

“Art is oftentimes a messy process,” McGehee said. “But students have discovered that a mess or even a ʻmistakeʼ doesn't have to derail them if they are willing to reflect on their work and try again. On the contrary, many of them are finding their best work emerges from the process of continual evaluation and improvement.”

The Performing Arts Brings the Stage to Life Once More

Music, dance, and smiling faces return for the 2021-2022 season

Masks began to come off this past year as students rallied in a return to live performances at the Creative Arts Center. We came together (30+ strong) for the Kander & Ebb musical revue And the World Goes ‘Round, as well as the even larger Middle School musical, Seussical! Fall and Spring dance concerts featured easy-breathing, unmasked dancers. “Some of my students—the newer ones—I had only ever seen them with their masks on. Some for two years,” Dance teacher David Ward said. “This year, when I saw their faces for the first time, tears came to my eyes.” In the Fall and Spring Music concerts, singing returned. An Upper School production of the comedy Leaving Iowa was followed by the 26th annual one-acts festival, Side Shows, featuring studentwritten, 10-minute plays. What a breath of fresh air!



From a shy sixth-grader to a confident Hawaiʻi state champion runner for Seabury Hall, Kaylee Volner '22 showed tremendous growth on the field and in the classroom.

Though having lost a few years of sports amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Kaylee persevered. She finished her athletic career as the state runner-up in cross country in 2019 and 2021; silver medalist and gold medalist in the 1,500 meters and 3,000 in 2022, respectively; and The Maui News 2022 MIL Girl Athlete of the Year.

All the while, she was excelling in the classroom while balancing other aspects of her life, such as family, friendships, and many extracurriculars like Student Council and National Honor Society.

Through the years, Kaylee had always hoped to one day be a gold medalist like the Lady Spartans that came before her, which

inspired her to find the confidence, courage, leadership and passion from within to achieve her big goals.

“I hope to one day inspire young runners to keep following their dreams and convey that great things can happen when you believe you deserve all your accomplishments,” Kaylee said. “To experience growth you must give 100% even when it feels uncomfortable and be confident in what you have accomplished.”

Most importantly, Kaylee advises future and current Spartans to enjoy the journey and to make memories during the four years of high school that often fly by.

But, Kaylee’s journey didn’t end at graduation as she heads to Santa Clara University this fall. There, she hopes to take everything she’s learned so far and continue growing as an athlete on the Division I running teams and as a student while studying biochemistry.

There are many people who guided Kaylee throughout her career at Seabury Hall, like her teammates and friends, who supported

her and created fun memories; head coach Bobby Grossman, who showed her that she is stronger than she thinks; and her family, who have been there since the beginning.

“Through COVID, I had no idea if I would ever be able to step onto the track again or run another cross country meet and it was hard to find motivation during the uncertainty. Yet, coach Bobby never gave up on me and continuously showed the faith he had in me,” Kaylee said. “From eighth grade to my senior year, my running journey would be drastically different if he had not been a part of my experience.”

Whether it was attending her choir performance or cheering her on from the sidelines of a race, her mom and dad truly showed her what it meant to have a loving support system no matter what.

“We shared our wins and brushed off our losses,” she said. “But most importantly, they kept me focused on the goals I had set for myself in both life and running.”

Yaya-Enriquez Meyer ’08 Returns to Seabury Hall as its Athletic Director

In the fall of 2022, Seabury Hall welcomed alumna Yaya EnriquezMeyer 08' back to campus as its Athletic Director. Yaya was born in Senegal, West Africa and spent her elementary and middle school years in Hāna before attending Seabury Hall, where she would go on to become a four-sport standout and MIL Athlete of the year. After graduation, Yaya played 1 year of Junior College basketball and volleyball at El Camino College in Torrance, CA, before transferring to Radford University. Yaya later earned a master’s degree in sports management from the University of San Francisco. She spent the last 7 years in the Bay Area working in sports operations, logistics, and event management for the University of California, Berkeley's athletic department, Golden State Warriors, Oakland Raiders, Oakland A's, and most recently, Boys and Girls Clubs in San Francisco.

What stands out to you about Seabury Hall?

How welcoming and supportive everyone is. Seabury Hall is really an ʻohana, and everyone cares about what you do and appreciates the work people put into our students. From the grounds crew, maintenance, kitchen crew, teachers, administrators, everyone plays an important role in keeping Seabury Hall at such a high standard.

How do you feel about returning to the school as its new AD?

It still feels like a dream coming back to Seabury Hall as an alum. I remember on my first day in graduate school, we went around the class and shared why we were in the program. I said that I always wanted to be a high school Athletic Director, back home in Maui, and possibly at my alma mater. That was my dream! I still can't believe it has come to fruition, and that I’m actually fulfilling this goal I set for myself a long time ago. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and I'm ready to get to work!

What are you looking forward to the most about being the AD?

What I am most looking forward to about being AD at Seabury Hall would have to be working with the student-athletes and our coaches. After these last couple of years, the student-athletes have been through so much and sports is such an important part of a young person's life when it comes to social, emotional, and physical learning. I’m excited to get Seabury back to the competitive nature we were at before the pandemic and help our student-athletes compete at the highest level. I also want to make sure our coaches are advocated for and to just be there to support them with whatever they need.

What are some of your favorite memories of your time at Seabury Hall?

There are so many to choose from! Obviously, I enjoyed participating in every sport that I could. The gym was pretty much my second home and I especially loved talking story with Coach Colflesh. I also have to give a shoutout to Gus and the kitchen crew. They were so great to be around and always kept us well fed. Mrs. Middleton's “chicken skin” stories is another memorable part of my high school career. I also appreciated being a part of the Social Committee my senior year. We got to plan events for the entire school, which was really fun.

How do you hope to impact our school community?

I want to be able to give back to Seabury Hall the way it helped and shaped me. To be a mentor for all our students and show the community that Seabury Hall is a great place to learn, grow, and become productive people to our community and the world. I hope to also shed light on important issues and advocate for those who have no voice.

Seabury Hall's Inaugural 5th-Grade class brought a renewed enthusiasm for learning and community to campus.

Adding a new grade level was not quite the first thing Head of School, Maureen Madden had in mind for the 2021-2022 school year. Yet, desire for a 5th grade class had been gaining momentum for some time within Seabury Hall's community and after a successful year of navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, inquiries about a new grade level increased. “In 2020, we realized how resilient we really were as a school,” Madden said. “We knew we had done a great job of rising to the occasion in the previous year and felt we could at least consider the possibility of adding a 5thgrade class.”

The idea soon became the subject of a school-wide exploratory study which asked each department to consider the opportunities and challenges of adding an additional grade level to the school. “A decision like this impacts every member of our school so we wanted to make sure all voices were heard and all ideas were put out on the table,” Madden said. “Through this study we discovered that the benefits of adding a 5th-grade class would far outweigh the challenges that were sure to come with it.” When the opportunity to apply for the new grade level was put forth to the community, the response was overwhelmingly positive. The number of

applications exceeded expectations and soon the process of creating the new class was in full swing.

In March 2021, Teacher and Program Coordinator Katie Hensley and Teacher Assistant Danielle Emerick were brought on board. “Throughout the Spring and Summer, we selected a classroom, ordered new furniture, selected the curriculum, and planned for orientation and the first days and weeks of school. The thoughtful nature of planning and preparing and the support of the administration left me feeling ready and excited to begin the school year," said Hensley.

In August, after months of preparation, Seabury Hall welcomed 20 students as its inaugural 5th Grade Class at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. The class was housed in the center of campus below the library. It was a fitting home for the school’s youngest group of students, as teachers have referred to the location as the “heart” of Seabury Hall. “I think the promise of a new group of our youngest students coming in felt like a pulse of excitement for the Seabury Hall community,” Hensley said.

In the classroom, it was immediately clear that the class of 2029 was truly a special group. “I have to give credit to Admissions for selecting the perfect personalities and interests to create such a cohesive group. It really stood out to me that the students had come from diverse school experiences

from the previous year,” Hensley said. “Some were in school full-time, some were on distance learning, and some were in homeschool groups. But they were all looking for a community and a consistent school and social experience.”

Outside the classroom, despite being the newest and youngest members of Seabury Hall, the fifth-grade students fit in right away. Most notably, partnering with the class of 2022 on several occasions, including Spartan Day where the seniors paired up with grade 5 and explained the games, competed with them, and cheered them on.

When asked about how this initial group of fifth graders have grown throughout the year, Hensley shared their progress with pride. “The students grew so much this year, physically and mentally! They have truly grown as readers, writers, scientists, and mathematicians. Our weekly STEM challenges really helped them to grow in their ability to work with others and collaborate.

Over the year they have also become more independent and are ready to navigate the campus and middle school next year.”

“It is such a blessing to be a part of our school’s history and having each student and teacher be new was a huge help in forming such a tight community. We all feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to make relationships that will last throughout our years at Seabury Hall.”

Maunalei Marketplace & Maunalei Giving Day

In April 2022, Seabury Hall opened Maunalei Marketplace, a virtual Mother's Day Marketplace in support of the school's Financial Aid program. The virtual marketplace featured flowers, lei po‘o, silent auction items, and other gifts for pickup on the day before Mother's Day. On Saturday, May 7, 2022, our school hosted families, friends, and members of the community on its campus grounds for pickup of their marketplace purchases. Visitors enjoyed performances from Seabury Hall's Chorus, Band, Dance, and Hawaiian Ensemble as they collected their items, strolled the grounds and spent the day enjoying the beauty of our school.

Maunalei Marketplace coincided with the 2nd Annual Maunalei Giving Day, a 24-hour giving drive also in support of Seabury Hall's Financial Aid program. Within a day, a total of 505 gifts one for each student at the school were collected from donors across the country. Each gift went a long way to ensuring that Seabury Hall continues to be a supportive and innovative place of learning, by strengthening our financial aid program, school facilities, programming, and technology.

Father Chris

Welcoming our new Chaplain, Father Christopher Golding to Seabury Hall

In August 2021, Seabury Hall welcomed Father Christopher Golding to campus as the School Chaplain. In this role, Father Chris provides pastoral care and spiritual guidance to students, families, faculty, and staff. They are also responsible for coordinating Seabury Hall’s Community Service Leadership (CSL) program and organizing school assemblies and weekly chapel services. Father Chris also serves as the co-chair of Seabury Hall's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice, and Belonging (DEIJB) work along with Middle School faculty member, Stephanie Nelson.

Father Chris was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia. They were ordained in 2011 and have served as a school chaplain, trustee, and parish priest in a diverse range of contexts both in the U.S. and abroad. Father Chris previously served as Associate Priest at St. Luke's Episcopal Church and School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After relocating to Hawaii in 2015, Father Chris served as Associate Rector at the Parish of St. Clement in Honolulu and Vicar of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Kailua.

What prompted you to move to Maui?

Like many others during the COVID-19 pandemic, my family and I were looking for a silver lining. Having lived on O‘ahu from 2015-2018, I'd heard about the beauty of Seabury Hall's campus and community through Episcopal Church circles. So, when the opportunity arose, I took a two-day trip to visit the school and speak with [Head of School]

Maureen Madden about what

might look like. During that trip, I was overwhelmed by the loving resilience of the school ‘ohana during the pandemic. I also had the chance to meet with students and alumni. Current students exhibited an authenticity and an inquisitive spirit which I found immensely hopefilled, while alumni spoke of their continued dedication to a school community that had left an indelible and positive impact on their lives.

What have you enjoyed the most about being Chaplain at Seabury Hall?

It's hard for me to single out one thing! School Chaplaincy embodies relationship building across the entire school. It's an opportunity that I try to celebrate daily. The daily and weekly rhythms, together with the many joyful surprises that community life offers, all of this puts me in direct contact with students. I'm consistently renewed by the energy and optimism they bring. Any chance to be a part of their everunfolding story is an amazing gift in itself.

How do you hope to impact our school community?

My hope, first and foremost, is to be an authentic pastoral presence for the entire school ‘ohana. Pastoral care is the gift of safe space for others. It’s an inclusive intention for everyone. Unfortunately, formalized religion, in the experience of many, is anything but loving and embracing.

However, I hope to live something different. I hope to offer an intentional ministry that offers healing to anyone who has been impacted negatively by this false spirituality. In embodying love and inclusion, I hope we can go on a spiritual journey together–students, staff, teachers, parents, and alumni–whatever that unique pilgrimage might look like. Perhaps this might offer hope and a depth of peace and courage as we navigate change and complexity in everyday life.

What other facts would you like to share with the Seabury Hall community?

I'm a vegan and I love to keep active by exploring the beauty of Maui with spouse, Julia and my children Phoebe (6th-grade) and James (5thgrade). In my downtime, I enjoy keeping up with family and friends, and seeking out all things related to interfaith spirituality, pop culture, and current affairs. Watching Formula One is pretty awesome too!

Remembering Linda Lindsay Higgins

Last year, Seabury Hall bid aloha to its beloved Librarian Emerita, Linda Lindsay Higgins by planting an ʻulu (breadfruit) tree in her honor near the Castle Library. A small ceremony was held on October 26, 2021, commemorating her service to Seabury Hall and the many fond memories of Linda that were shared by students and staff alike.

A memorial scholarship fund was established in her honor and became fully funded in 2021. The scholarship will help to offset educational costs for a Seabury Hall student who demonstrates financial need and is interested in research.

The Nose That Knows

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Maureen (Mo) Maurer, Executive Director of Hawaii Assistance Dogs, started exploring the idea of using dogs to detect SARS-COV-2 bacteria in skin-odor samples collected from humans. “I knew a study had been conducted prior to the pandemic where dogs were able to detect bacterial infections and wondered if they would also be able to detect COVID-19,” Maurer said. “I was also aware of an organization in the U.K. that was conducting this kind of research and decided to see if their work could help to inform a study with our own dogs.”

After learning more about the U.K. study, Maurer and Hawaii Assistance Dogs piloted their own COVID-19 detection study in late 2020, with a hand-picked group of 4 dogs. The dogs chosen were already engaged in Hawaii Assistance Dogs’ training program and were selected based on a variety of factors including temperament, eagerness to learn, and enjoyment of “high use of nose.” “Basically, we wanted to choose the dogs who had more drive and enjoyed repetition in learning scent detection,” Maurer said.

Hawaii Assistance Dogs then partnered with The Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu to obtain skin-odor samples from patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. The positive samples were paired with a piece of kibble in a box along with 4 other boxes that were empty. The dogs first learned to identify the box that contained the kibble and sample. Within just one day of training, staff removed the piece of kibble and the dogs were able to successfully identify the box that contained only the positive sample (the dogs were rewarded with kibble upon finding the positive sample). “The training was similar to the process of teaching dogs to sniff for drugs, bombs, or

even vegetables at the airport,” said Maurer. Once the dogs could identify COVID-19, the training introduced hundreds of skin-odor samples from other cold and flu viruses not related to COVID-19, effectively teaching the dogs which scents they should not alert staff to. The dogs went through thousands of trials and the results of the study were published in the Open Forum Infectious Diseases issue of the Oxford Academic in May 2022.

At the end of the study, Maurer wanted to see how the dog’s ability to detect COVID-19 could be applied in a real-life setting. Maurer immediately thought of partnering with Seabury Hall. “Our organization had already formed a positive relationship with Seabury Hall over the course of many years,” Maurer said. “The school was a perfect fit for what we were hoping to do. Not only are they our neighbor in terms of location but the size was just right for the number of volunteers we needed. [Head of School] Maureen Madden was truly wonderful to work with. She supported our mission with a great ‘can do’t attitude throughout the study.”

With Seabury Hall on board, Maurer and her team designed the first-ever protocol for using dogs to screen for COVID-19 at a school. Over the course of two weeks between February and March 2022, over 100 students and staff participated in providing skin-odor samples. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, volunteers would report to a tent in the courtyard of Cooper House where staff would swipe flat, round, cotton pads on the right and left sides of the neck. The samples were immediately sealed in a container and labeled. Once all samples had been collected for the day, the dogs went to work, checking each one for the virus. “Ironically, there were no positive cases at Seabury Hall throughout our study,” Maurer said. “Which was a great thing! We did, however, ‘plant’ a few samples we knew were positive in order to keep the dogs interested and working during those two weeks.”

During the partnership with Seabury Hall, the dogs were able to screen 100 samples in less than an hour with a 100% accuracy rate. “This real-life application was a big step forward in this type of study,” Maurer said. “It proved that we were able to screen students and staff in a safe and effective manner and that the dogs were as accurate in a school setting as they were in a controlled setting.” The findings of the study and application have been shared with researchers around the world and have been met with interest from the White House as well as the California Department of Health, which has adopted the protocol for screening students in schools.

When asked what’s next for Hawaii Assistance Dogs, Maurer is eager to focus on the original mission of the organization: training service dogs to help those with disabilities. “We are certainly happy that our findings have made an impact in this field of study but now we’re ready to focus all our energy on training dogs for those who need them the most,” Maurer said. “For a year and a half, we did these studies in addition to training and placing service dogs, which was a lot of work for our small organization. With the onset of the pandemic, we’ve actually seen a rise in the need for service dogs in places like hospitals and courthouses and especially for children. The need is greater now than it has ever been, so it is our responsibility to meet that need by doing what we have always done best.”
