PSAT UPDATE - Testing Students: Report to Turtle Bay on Oct. 14, 2015

The PSAT/NMSQT will be given on Wednesday, OCTOBER 14, 2015 at Turtle Bay in the Kahuku Ballroom. Sign in will begin promptly at 8:00 and we hope to begin testing by 8:15 so we can complete the testing by 12:30 at the latest.

Students should be sure to review the list of devices that are not allowed during testing. These devices will be confiscated before testing. Failure to comply with the PSAT rules will require us to dismiss the student from testing, write an Irregularity Report, and the student's test will be cancelled without a refund.

All students are required to bring their KHI ID or a state-approved picture ID if they are a home-schooled student. Number 2 pencils will be provided, but students are advised to bring a graphing or scientific calculator. (Please see approved list in Student PSAT guide - link to the pdf on KHI's Testing Center page).

Senior Portraits

Aloha Parents of Seniors,

To those parents of seniors who have already had their student's senior portraits done, thank you.

To those parents of seniors who HAVE MADE APPOINTMENT and have yet to take their senior portraits, thank you. PLEASE KEEP that appointment.
The deadline for Studio portraits at Pearl City is September, 20th.

To those parents of seniors who did not make any appointments yet, and still want their seniors in the yearbook, please call 456-4333 and reserve a time slot during the one day event, Wednesday, September, 23, after school in the KHIS gym. This is by appointment only on a first come first served basis. This road studio is a streamlined version of the studio session. The road studio does not have as much options as the pearl city studio session. It is intended for the students who absolutely cannot make a Pearl City studio session. Time slots is very limited. The road studio still cost $45.00.

Last year about 20 parents and students tried to walk in on this one day event and many were turned away because they did not have an appointment. They were very disappointed. Please do not repeat their mistake.

DO NOT CANCEL your existing appointment and attempt to make a new on on September 23. This cause an imbalance of time and space in the road studio continuum.

Senior portraits have been available since the middle of June 2015. I have a deadline to keep in order to complete the yearbook on time and these senior portrait deadlines are critical.

Thank you.

Mr. Ching

Students capture national titles, surpass international competitors

Students capture national titles, surpass international competitors

Freshman Essie Workman and 10th-grader Truman Spring spent their summer traveling to the University of Maryland; competing against 3,000 students; and securing rankings as the U.S.’ top #7 and #8 students, respectively, at the National History Day Contest.

Hawaii News Now article:


Spring – Hawaii’s first-place winner in the “Senior (9-12) Paper” category at the state History Day contest, the qualifying leg for June’s national competition – placed eighth in the U.S. in the Essay category. His paper, “The Legacy of Caesar Augustus: The Prince of the Senate, The Price of the Peace,” explored Caesar’s quest for peace and his leadership style that still exists today. At nationals, he also won the Outstanding State Entry – Senior Division award.
In Workman’s Individual Performance, “Captain America: A Man Before His Time,” she played various roles that conveyed the impact that the super hero inspired in minorities, women and the physically challenged during WWII.  Besides placing seventh nationally, her entry earned a special World War II award. In the state contest, she placed first in her category.
Competitors in the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest came from China, South Asia, Korea, all 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Central America, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and Guam.
Spring’s teachers were Lorey Ishihara and Debra Ulii, while Workman’s was Lisa Lessing.
Hawaii History Day, a prequalifier for NHD, is a Hawaii Council for the Humanities program.

The Kahuku High and Intermediate duo survived the preliminaries, during which 85 percent of the entries from the sixth- through 12th-grade contestants were eliminated. The finals consisted of the top 15 percent with some 14 entries in five categories.
