The After-School All-Stars Hawaii team has been hard at work putting together resources to help our ʻohana with activities they can do at home during this challenging time. Weʻll be posting during the after-school hours starting Thursday, April 2 and hope you'll join in on the fun.
One of the new things we're trying is a new video series "Stay at Home Blues (and Oranges)" that will feature activities students and families can do with minimal resources at home.
Our first video is scheduled to go live on Friday, April 3 so make sure you connect with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Sharing is caring, so please share this post! #ILoveAfterschool #asashawaii Hawaii Afterschool Alliance Hawaii State Department of Education
Aloha Parents and Guardians of Pahoa High and Intermediate Students.
We will be extending Computer Pick up to Monday, March 30 and Tuesday March 31 starting at 11:30 and ending at 1:30. Parents and Children must be present to get a computer.
Also, packets of work for those not able to access the internet will be available starting Monday at 11:30 and ending at 1:30. We will also be available on Tuesday, March 31.
Pick up location is in the H Building parking lot (middle school playcourt). Please stay in your cars for your safety and the safety of those helping to distribute work.
Please see our website for additional information at pahoahis.org.
Q: Can I send someone to pick up computers for my children?
A: No. We need the students available so that we can determine that the student attends Pahoa High and Intermediate School.
Q: Can I send my aunt/uncle/grandmother/babysitter to pick up a computer with my student?
A: No. Parents/Guardians must sign to accept the responsibility for replacing the computer should the computer be lost or damaged.
Q: How do I contact my student’s teachers?
A: There are numerous links provided through pahoahis.org for parents to find emails, phone numbers, etc. Teachers will be working to reach out to their students to help them access the work being provided.
Q: Does this work “count”? In other words, will the work be graded.
A: These activities are enrichment activities, helping students to reinforce what they already know and help them not to forget what they learned. Completing these activities will help your student to enter the classroom ready to learn when we return.
On Friday, March 27, 8 AM to 12 PM computers will be available for students who may need them for the enrichment activities at H Building parking lot. Parents will need to sign the acceptable use policy to receive a computer and will be responsible if the computer is lost or damaged.

On Monday, March 30 and Tuesday, March 31, packets of enrichment activities will be provided starting at 11:30 in the Pahoa High and Intermediate School H-Building Parking Lot. Many teachers will also be posting enrichment activities via Google Classroom. Each teacher will be providing instructions for contact for questions regarding assignments.
Students should follow their schedules starting on Monday as an even schedule. Students will be able to contact their teachers at https://bit.ly/2y4zOPq if they have questions regarding the activities.
Following admin and CDC recommendations, it is with great regret that to inform you that Pahoa’s Jr./Sr. Prom is CANCELLED. Prom bids will be reimbursed beginning March 30 in S201 during recess and lunch. Currently, students are being informed through social media.
One of our students went head to head with the best and the brightest at the District Science Fair and performed extremely well in a very tough competition. He was also the only KKP student to compete in the senior division this year! Xavier Tablit received many cash/certificate awards – the Sierra Club Moku Loa Dr. Don Worsencroft Award, the East Asian Observatory Research Project Award, the NASA Earth System Science Award, and the U.S. Metric Association Award. Additionally he placed the Best in Subject Senior Division for Physics and Astronomy. But the most incredible news of all was Xavier being chosen to be the recipient of the UH-Hilo Chancellor’s Award!!! This is a One-year tuition waiver given to a prospective high-school student that will attend UH-Hilo beginning Fall 2020. The award was presented by the UH-Hilo Chancellor Dr. Bonnie Irwin and was worth over $8000.00!!!
This was a 3 year continuation project that Xavier completed by “Analyzing Stellar Binary Systems to Enhance Contemporary Red Dwarf Spin Down Models.” Ask him about it and he will gladly go into detail (very deep detail!) on what this project was all about. Xavier plans to attend UH HIlo next fall with the goal of obtaining advanced degree(s) in Physics and Astronomy.
Please let Xavier know how proud you are of him for his hard work, but also for the outstanding representation of our complex and our school at a very intense, high stakes academic event.
