LJA 2021 Annual Report

LJA 2021 Annual Report

Aloha mai ka-kou,

The resilience, grit, and dedication to learning shown across our LJA ‘ohana this year is
reflective of the very values that bind us together as a school community. Though we
returned to campus last fall with trepidation and many questions as to what a global
pandemic would make of our school year, we ended in June with a flourish, not only having
kept our campus open for face-to-face learning while providing a distance learning option
for others, but also having kept our LJA community in tact, regardless of vaccination
status, risk tolerance, or opinion. In fact, LJA became a leader and ekox-akmuapplerifdoerssucshomoolsst.
locally and nationally with its pandemic response. Our community
It’s the very glue that has secured our commitment to student learning and to the well-
being of one another these past 12 months.

We believe we have been truly fortunate in this pandemic to be able to send our keiki to
school each day to learn and be with their friends--something we are able to do because
we trust that, across the LJA ‘ohana, other parents like us are equally committed to
choices and actions that are in the best interests of our student’s health and well-being.
It is the unwavering support and generosity of our donors that has positioned LJA so
well to be able to demonstrate its agility and innovation with each and every pivot so that
creativity, collaboration, and learning could prevail both on campus and at home.

On behalf of the trustees and leadership, our hats o to you--all of you--for all that you
choose to do for the LJA community. It’s our privilege to serve LJA, and our commitment
to do so is renewed daily by the passion of our faculty and students, generous support of
our families, and promise of an increasingly bright future for our school.

With gratitude,

Paul Sibley Earl Kim
Chair, Board of Trustees Head of School

Celebration OF

THE ANNUAL FUND

LJA Giving Day

AS UNIQUE, ENERGETIC, and heartwarming as any student event on campus
is LJA Giving Day, a tradition of giving back in celebration to advance student
learning for our School. On October 23, 2020, the event broke its own record
when 404 donors made 443 gifts to raise $190,784, unlocking $100,000
in matching funds from its trustees and activating $294,784 in support of
healthy and safe student learning. Also of note, the average gift received was
$635.32, nearly double that of last year!
Student groups--including the Robotics team, National Honor Society, and
Basketball, Volleyball, and Cross Country teams joined with faculty and
parent volunteers to create a contagious energy on campus through their
cheering, sign waving, and expressions of gratitude for the LJA community’s
continued support and generosity of spirit. Despite the face masks, everyone
was all smiles in celebration of LJA Giving Day.

The MYP Personal Project is the culminating,
yearlong project for Grade 10 students. It is the
opportunity to take a step outside of their regular
coursework to plan a learning goal and outcome
based on their individual interests, skills, and
knowledge.
This is an independent project that encourages
students to manage their time and organizational
skills with the guidance of a supervisor. Their
learning goal and outcome allows them to pursue
an area of impact in their life, education, or future
workplace.
MYP Personal Project performance has been
identified as a predictor of success in earning an

Collective Well-Being

(continued)
In preparation for post-pandemic wellness,
educational leadership also laid the
groundwork to support the development
of a framework to support social emotional
learning for LJA.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the
foundation of all learning and a core
component of an IB education. Of priority
were the first steps in a multi-year e ort to
“support well-being through the intentional
cultivation of healthy relationships,
targeted data collection, and an articulated
PK-12 social-emotional learning
framework” for both students and faculty.
This year, e orts were focused on adult
relationships and well-being on campus
as well as the teaching of social emotional
learning. Milestones included an internal
audit, planning for an SEL framework,
and a key resource analysis for year two--
including professional development for
teachers, use of the Student Success
Review (SSR), a tool to evaluate internal
learning support and counseling systems,
and time to incorporate Approaches to
Learning (ATL) skills into the PK-12 scope
and sequence. Work will continue through
2021-22.

Values

PARAMOUNT TO A CLEAR VISION and forward
trajectory for LJA was a set of clearly articulated
shared values to support our mission and vision. Led
by Melissa Handy and Melissa Moniz, LJA’s Values
Team forged a path toward values over a 10-month
period that built on nearly two years of previous work.
Expert facilitator Chris Pating was tapped to conduct
management and stakeholder input sessions. More
than a dozen faculty members represented their
divisions in personal values interviews. Students (and
parents!) were asked to weigh in via survey and during
advisory sessions to help shape the conversation.
Between 90% - 95% of individuals felt the values
represent who LJA is now, and who LJA aspires to be.
Between 92% - 97% also felt the values aligned with
their own personal values. The result? With input
from 521 total participants and 94% comfortable
with the proposed values guiding decision-making,
LJA’s Board of Trustees adopted the proposed
values with full confidence in May 2021. Next year,
the Values Implementation Team will work with
leadership, faculty, and sta to integrate the values
into school communications and traditions and to
celebrate the values in action every day.

Between 90% - 95% of
individuals felt the values
represent who LJA is now,
and who LJA aspires to be.

IMPACT TERM (I-TERM), LJA’s signature ”week of learning
without walls”, continues to grow. This year, LJA innovated
its way around the limitations of the pandemic by engaging
local businesses as partners for our course o erings. In
May 2021, I-Term o ered 22 distinct impact courses to
High School students. Course highlights included a beauty
course in partnership with local salon Beyond the Mirror,
a farm-to-table cooking course in collaboration with Full
Circle Farm, and an automotive course that leverage UH
Manoa’s trade school for real world applications. LJA’s
American Sign Language I-Term course has become a full
high school academy, where students are further engaging
with the hearing-impaired community through creation of
videos for the hearing-challenged.

Maxim Palmer Strives for Excellence

Grade 3
“Maxim chose to run for Student Council and was voted in. He then ran
for Vice President and won! He is the only 3rd grader this year to do
that. Maxim is always so engaged with what we're learning about and he
continuously goes home and talks to his parents about what we're doing
in class and is able to make connections with mom and dad. He is a hard
worker and always respectful and kind to his classmates.”

- Katy Nakayama, Grade 3 Teacher

Janice Corsino Nurtures Creativity

Lower School Art Teacher
“Mrs. Corsino is really one of our unsung heroes throughout the years. She
provides the kids with a nurturing place to grow their creative strengths.
She has such a great disposition and quality that my daughter appreciates.
Jan has helped my daughter to develop her artistic skills and my daughter
is able to articulate her learning in writing, as well as creatively.”

- Mercedes Fagundes, Parent ‘25

Dante Sbarbaro Models Great Character

“Through all of the years that I've known Dante, he has consistently
demonstrated a respectful attitude, strength of character, and a highly
dedicated approach to learning. Dante embodies so many of the values and
traits that LJA holds dear.”

IN ACTION

TO MAKE THE BEST of ILH and State restrictions
due to COVID, LJA Athletics found creative ways for
students to play by pushing all sports from the first
semester into a modified second semester with two
seasons. LJA pivoted to create a ‘sport experience'
for contact sports such as water polo, soccer and
basketball scrimmages or senior celebrations because
the ILH didn't sanction those sports to be played. All
other sports had modified seasons.

“Our student athletes have
