One year ago I would not have thought that we would be doing something so influential, that we would be taken to Oahu, and have students from such a high caliber school such as Saint Anthony visit us. I am also very apperciative of their enthusiasm. It's interesting seeing another school that is/wants to be so involved with the Hokulea. I wonder what this all looks like from their perspective? It was a funny coincidence that their 6th grade class was the same size as our 6th grade.
Dear Mr/Mrs/Ms. Donor
I would like to thank you for your generous donation. The $90 per-person will be just the push needed in order for Sacred Hearts School to win the bank account competition. Although I don't know who you are, I am still thankful.

On Saturday this past weekend, Erin Tsue, Isabella Lallo (7th Grade), Mrs. Enriquez, our principal, Mrs. Hendricks, my father and I went to Oahu for the day and attended "Astronaut Lacy Veach Day 2013". Not only did we get to here executive director of the Polynesian Voyaging Society Nainoa Thompson speak, but we also were engaged in a couple of exciting science oriented activities. First we built bottle rockets, comprised of one two liter bottle, and one soda bottle. They flew across the football field! Next we learned about what happens to our food after we eat it, and about the different types of fat. Some of it looked like apple sauce. I hope to attend next year's event.
Last week Thursday, my class went on a "Learning Journey" to Holy Nativity School on Oahu. While we were there we explained our role in the Hokulea and its World Wide Voyage. The 5th and 6th grade classes were ecstatic to see our website and are jumping to make one of their own. It was cool to see another class as ecstatic to be involved as our teacher was on the day we learned about the Hokulea. I can't wait to see them again in January.
Though today was our last day of our five week sailing program, there may be hope! It is possible that we may have another chance to sail with the Lahaina Yacht Club. If we do, the only thing that could happen is we get better from here. Some of the novice sailors and the experienced sailors could race together closely. I wold like to thank all the crew and staff that provided help and food for us. I hope to be able to go the the summer camp that they provide again next summer.
