LIHU‘E — Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School wanted to give their library new books and did just that with the help of a local nonprofit.
CKMS hosts two Scholastic Book Fairs each school year and there were about a dozen students that participated with the 2010-11 school year events.
This year the students wanted to give the school library new books and sought the help of a local non-profit that helps children and families.
A Book Fair Student Crew was formed with students from grades 6, 7 and 8.
The students are responsible for choosing a theme for the fair, advertising and marketing to fellow students/staff, assist at the fair, the set-up/clean-up, and for determining how to use the profits from the fair.
The CKMS library also received $1,600 worth of books during the school year from the student crew.
All books were purchased through the Scholastic Instructional Resource Catalog.
“We would like to thank the BF Student Crew members, Arianna Plascencia, Carolyn Price, Bronwyn Kay, Tylyn Nakamura, Joshua Matsuyama, Riley Young, Cashaundra McGurn, Tiare Puchert, Jodie Sakahara, Malia Witsil, Jacelyn Perreira, Abigayl Cox for their heartfelt generosity to our school, the YWCA Family Violence Shelter, and to Shriner’s Hospitals for Children — Honolulu,” said Jeana Nakamura, CKMS faculty.
In October 2010, the students selected the YWCA Family Violence shelter as the recipient of $1,000 worth of books.
In February 2011, the students selected Shriner’s Hospitals for Children-Honolulu as the recipient of $2,200 worth of books.
