WINDWARD BEACH CLEANUP ON SATURDAY

'Iolani School has signed up to support the Earth Day 2015 Beach Cleanup in Kailua on Saturday, April 25. The event is being coordinated by Sustainable Coastlines, a local, non-profit organization dedicated to caring for our local beaches. 'Iolani families and friends are responsible for coordinating the cleanup near the Castles surf break beach access (800 block of North Kalaheo Ave.). Students and their families should plan to arrive by 9 a.m. to check in and help set up our station. Please wear your 'Iolani shirts, and bring a reusable water bottle, sunscreen and snacks for the morning. Lunch will be provided and followed by live music and lots of great family activities!

REQUEST REGARDING NEIGHBORHOOD TRAFFIC

When traffic on Kamoku Street becomes heavy during drop off and pick up times, our neighboring residents have asked us to please be mindful of cars exiting or entering driveways on Kamoku Street. They ask that our 'Iolani community not block driveways while waiting on Kamoku when traffic lights are red. This small gesture will also help move the flow of traffic which would benefit families picking up students as well as neighbors. Mahalo!

JAZZ 'N' YOUTH EXCHANGE -- HOME-STAY VOLUNTEERS

The international Jazz 'n' Youth Exchange, in conjunction with Rotary International, will be coming to Honolulu on June 14. Students from Germany, Texas and Hawai'i will take part in a two-week event that will include jazz workshops and clinics, rehearsals, and concert performances. Jazz 'n' Youth exchanges promote cultural sharing, foster international friendships, and provide learning and performing opportunities through jazz music. The students, ages 14 - 21, will be under the direction of prominent jazz musicians and educators from the mainland. 'Iolani School will host several rehearsals and workshops, and a culminating concert at Seto Hall on Saturday, June 27.

We are looking for home-stay volunteers to house the visiting students and staff during the second week of the exchange from June 20 through June 27 (eight nights). The Germans are able to communicate and converse in English. In addition to nightly bedding, we are asking that every home-stay volunteer provide a daily basic breakfast and morning drop-off / late afternoon pick-up at 'Iolani School. Your participation will be greatly appreciated! Please contact Curtis Abe at cabe [at] iolani [dot] org if you are willing and interested to volunteer as a home-stay host.
