In the Spotlight

Aloha Wai’anae Intermediate School Ohana,
I would like to begin by sending a special shout out to the accomplishments of several groups of students on campus:
-To our school Rugby team for taking first place in this year’s state competition;
-Next, to our school robotics team for placing 2nd in the state VEX robotics competition;
-Also, to our Science Olympiad for placing second behind in the Science Olympiad Bottle Rocket competition;
-And finally to our Jr. Seariders for winning the state Clarence TC Ching video competition.
   Our students continue to amaze me on a daily basis and represent our school and community in such a positive light. I would like to send out a special thank you to the many parents and community members that continually come out to support our keiki. It has been extremely uplifting to see so many of you at our various events in support of your child.
   With all of that being said, these are the moments that we need to come together. Recently, and I hope I don’t cause anxiety, but raise your awareness; we have had an unusual amount of students found in possession of drugs on campus. Unfortunately in past experiences, many of these students received these substances from family members. However, this has since changed as we have a community member that believes it is profitable to sell drugs to our students off campus. I understand that this situation is distressing but we are working to make our community safe for all of our students. So what can we do?
   1) We will be holding a parent meeting in the library on March 4th at 9:00 a.m. We will have the YMCA, HPD, and the Wai’anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center present to give our families resources to protect your home from these influences.
   2) Suggest that your child be dropped off to campus in the morning. Many students will ask to be dropped off at a friend’s house and walk to campus. Since the drugs are being collected in the neighborhood, this just invites and tempts students to make the wrong decision.
   3) Talk and listen to your child about these influences. Many students will admit that some of their best friends are surrounded by drugs, which it makes it difficult to avoid these situations.
   4) Contact HPD on suspected homes that are selling these substances. I would like to thank the families that have submitted these tips and a special thank you to HPD for providing the resources to combat this issue within our community.
   Let’s all continue to work together to combat this issue and ensure a bright future for all of our keiki.
Mr. John Wataoka
