 Postscript: The world-renown traveling exhibition, The Wonder of Learning, will be coming to Hawaii June through November
 2013. This massive, in-depth exhibit, recounts learning experiences from the infant-toddler centers and preschools in Reggio
 Emilia. This exhibition is offered as a “democratic piazza” calling international attention to the importance of early childhood
 education. MPI Principal Edna Hussey and preschool teacher and pedagogista Leslie Gleim co-authored the proposal to bring
 the exhibit to Hawaii. Their proposal was selected from over 50 proposals submitted from across the U.S. and Canada.

 Mid-Pacific Institute is currently working with a consortium of Hawaii educators and businesses to support the exhibit’s pres-
 ence in our state. If you would like to help in the planning, contact Edna Hussey at the elementary school, 441-3800, or email

Mid-Pacific Institute Awarded $75,000 Schools of the Future Grant
Last year, Mid-Pacific was selected as one of 18 programs to receive
financial support from the Schools of the Future (SOTF),a five-year,
multi-million dollar funding commitment from the Hawaii Com-
munity Foundation (HCF) and a facilitating Hawaii Association of
Independent Schools (HAIS) Leadership Team. In year one (2009-
2010 school year), MPI received $47,000. This year, the second year
of the project,Mid-Pacific has been awarded the maximum funding
of $75,000. Schools of the Future is a capacity building initiative de-
signed to encourage and mobilize schools to transform their learning
environments and teaching strategies in support of student-cen-
tered, project-based learning that is relevant to teaching all students
how to live, learn, and work as engaged and knowledgeable citizens
of the 21st Century. This program is designed to assist HAIS schools
as they assess their existing learning environments,envision the new
learning platforms they would like to develop, and implement spe-
cific plans or projects to actualize these visions.

8th Grade Toy Fair
On Thursday May 13, the Annual 8th Grade Toy Fair
took place in Atherton Pavilion. Parents, teachers, ad-
ministrators, participated in this event as eager 8th
graders jumped at the chance to demonstrate and sell
their products. The concept behind this interdiscipli-
nary project was to incorporate creativity, sensibility,
technology and cooperation into creating a never-
been-seen toy that would sell in today’s market.

Congratulations to the following Toy Groups that sold
the most units.

1st – TIA tots’ Slipprints…creations with your slippers

ending fun

  Ka Nalu Ola wins two prestigious awards
  Congratulations to the staff of MPI's literary journal, Ka Nalu Ola. The spring 2010 edition won two prestigious
  awards: a First Place Award from the American Scholastic Press Association and a Silver Award from the Columbia
  Scholastic Press Association.

  "Although several have departed the islands for college destinations, all are commended for their passion invested in
  the creation of Ka Nalu Ola." said Pat Takeshita, advisor & high school language arts teacher. "Since we are neither a
  club nor a class, time is gleaned from
  personal moments, notably spring

  "To make good writing the basis of suc-
  cessful student publications" was one of
  the earliest goals for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, an international association. From its beginnings in
  1925, the CSPA sponsored annual contests to seek out and publicize the best practices in student writing, editing and
  publishing. Student newspapers and magazines were the earliest formats chosen for these competitions. Today, online
  student media have been added as the technology of communications expands from print into cyberspace.”

What are you passionate about? And why?
I was a scientist doing basic research in hormone biochemistry
until I retired in January 2009 as the Director of Research with
the French national Center for Scientific Research. Research
was my passion and my vocation from MPI days. now that I
am retired my hobby is gardening. Although living in an urban
environment, I have always had a need for two things: digging
around with my hands in dirt and growing plants (I guess these
are my watercress farmer roots) and hearing and watching the
ocean (we had a beach house on Makaha beach).
