O c t o b e r  4 ,  2 0 1 9

At the end of every Quarter,  the teachers and Staff at Keolu like to honor students for their hard work and dedication.  Every award assembly includes an All-Star Student from every class and a GLO that is to be focused on for the Quarter.  GLO's are General Learner Outcomes.  Each outcome focuses on characteristics that students should learn in their life-long learning journey.

The GLO that was targeted was: 

Community Contributor or Malama Kaiaulu

A Community Contributor is someone who follows class and school rules, shares and carries out responsibilities in groups, works well with others, finds peaceful resolutions to conflict and becomes part of the solution.  Community Contributors take care of the people around them and their environment as well as help others.

This quarter's targeted GLO was: GLO3 Complex Thinker or Ho'okuano'o.  Complex thinkers are able to look at different problems and think about creative solutions.  They know that not every problem is the same and therefore, not ever answer will be the same.  A student that is a complex thinker is able to use past knowledge and apply it to the task at hand.


Congratulations to all the Keolu Kids that received awards!
