At Kona Pacific academic subjects are chosen based on the school’s curriculum, which aligns Waldorf standards to the Common Core. Please read the article below to learn more about this co-alignment and how learning material matches students’ specific developmental stages to increase motivation and relevance.
We are pleased and honored to serve our community in this way, and we are so grateful to all who joined us for this momentous occasion: Senator Jill Tokuda, Charter School Commission Executive Director Tom Hutton, and Hawai’i Public Charter Schools Network Executive Director Lynn Finnegan helped us to serve the first breakfast!
In addition, we were honored to welcome Representative Nicole Lowen, Hawai‘i Appleseed Center for Law andEconomic Justice Deputy Director Gavin Thornton, Lydia Clemens, Andrea McTamaney, and Dawn Zierk from Hawaii Community Foundation, Joy Barua from Kaiser Permanente, Ross Wilson, Jr. from Current Events, Christine Bean, and Maureen Datta from Adaptations, Inc.
Please join us on Thursday, Jan. 30th here at the Kona Pacific Public Charter School Campus for our January Community Potluck and Educational Presentation by International speaker Tim Burns.
We will gather to bless the meal at 5:30 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 6:00 p.m.
This month we are very honored to have Tim Burns, a longtime educator, author, and presenter who will share “The Amazing Brain: A Work in Progress.” Please see the flyer below for more information about the topic and Mr. Burns’ background.

Thanks to an incredibly generous donation to our school, as of Friday, January 25, Kona Pacific Public Charter School is 100% solar powered!
On Friday, we welcomed our generous benefactors to thank them. The children cheered and were so excited when we shared the news that we are now powered by the sun!
In addition to the generous donors of the system, we are grateful to PA Harris Electric. Following our solar power celebration, we enjoyed a very lovely multicultural assembly. Mr. Weis told a moving story about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., several classes shared performances, and the children loved singing with musician Dustin Thomas. It was certainly one of the most moving assemblies this year. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend.
