Maui Country Farm
Our St. Joseph Early Learning Center students posing proudly among the array of pumpkins found at the Kula Country Farm for a pumpkin patch field trip.
They enjoyed a beautiful day of touring the grounds, a walk through the corm maze and each student got to take home individual pumpkin. The best part was finding and voting for that special large pumpkin they will use as their classroom pumpkin to carve on Halloween Day for the traditional pumpkin carving contest.
It was the perfect beginning to the month of October and the harvest season.
The students are also gearing up for their up coming Christmas Craft Fair that will be taking place at the school grounds on Sat. Nov. 19th 2016. It will be our first fundraiser for the year... Happy Halloween to all!
Staff Retreat - The Staff of the St. Joseph Early Learning Center enjoyed fellowship, blessing and renewl from their recent staff retreat. The retreat took place at St. Theresa Church in Kehei and was facilitated by Fr. James Orsini. The theme this year was "The Year of Mercy".
The teachers and religious education leader celebrated in a privet mass, participated and helped serve at the Hale Kau Kau Kitchen and walk through the"Door of Mercy" located on church grounds.
Thank you to Monsignor Teri Watanabe, Fr. Jase Orsini staff at the Hale Kau Kau and parish staff at St. Theresa' s Church for all their kindness and hospotality that made or retreat special to all.
Mahalo and God bless.
