We are so grateful to have dedicated artists at our school, way to go!

On Thursday, March 28th,
we will be finishing our day at 11:45am

We will return to school on Monday, March the 11th.
Have a safe, fun, and prosperous Mardi Gras week!

Kahi

What is something you do well?

Criticize movies.

What is something you have learned in the past week?

I learned that my memory is short, and I can’t remember anything.

What is a misconception people have about you?

That I’m mean.

What is the biggest dream you have for yourself that you do not often say aloud?

I want to have a collection of all kinds of rare action figures.

Who has had a positive influence on your life so far and why?

Kevin Smith. He is a comic book expert and writer for the show “Jay and Silent Bob.” His love of comic books makes me love comic books.

What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

Bring a Barbie to school; it would be funny to me.

What do you like about New Harmony?

That we don’t have to sit at a desk all day. We get to get up and do things.

Happy weekend!
