Congratulations to Jessica L. ’27 on winning the 2023 Impact Challenge, a Belldegrun Center for Innovative Leadership competition focused on addressing the environmental refugee crisis. Special acknowledgments go to Maverick A. ’25 and Maya H. ’25 for their pivotal roles in co-designing the challenge.
Last week, the 6th grade retreat at Catalina Environmental Leadership Program (CELP) on Catalina Island was not just a getaway; it was an educational and adventurous journey that left a lasting impact on our students.
In Summer 2022, 1st grade teachers Kristen Diehl and Andrea Susson and 2nd grade teacher Tracy Stangel boarded an airplane to O’ahu with Lower School Director Debby McLean for the Hanahau’oli School’s “Thematic Inquiry-Based Teaching & Learning” workshop. The staff at Hanahau’oli challenged our teachers to find new ways to engage student curiosity and facilitate deeper learning.
