Kapa‘a High School student honored
The United States Achievement Academy announced last month that Kapa‘a High School student Sonya Tupou was recognized by the United States Achievement Academy as a student of excellence in mathematics. This prestigious honor recognizes fewer than 10 percent of all American high school students.
Sonya Tupou was nominated by the United States Achievement Academy by her teacher Laurel Baldridge. Tupou will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s yearbook.
Standards for selection include academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibility, motivation to learn and cooperative spirit.
Kaua‘i High School ninth grade orientation
Parents and guardians are invited to attend an orientation for their teens.
To help make a teen’s transition to high school easier, attend the ninth-grade orientation meeting, 6:30 p.m. Thursday, in the Kaua‘i High School music room M-47, located behind the campus swimming pool.
This will be an informal meeting and a perfect time to interact with members of the school community, ask questions and gather information to help your teen prepare for life at Kaua‘i High School before school begins.
