Ka Leo ‘O Nanakuli News Media website is back up


I just wanted to share with you that the Ka Leo ‘O Nanakuli News Media website is back up again and we hope you will enjoy the stories that my News Media students create.  Yes, the news media program is the other hat I wear besides the NPAC.

The Ka Leo ‘O Nanakuli news program is responsible for the school newspaper and news website.  I actually ran the program for over 12 years, but over the last two years, the program had no students willing to do the job, so the paper and website died.  However, this year we have a bunch of students who wanted to learn journalism skills as well as I am teaching a AVID class and having them also work on stories.

In addition, several of these students are working on the PBS Hiki No Student Television News Show.

We plan on constantly updating the site as well as doing tweaks in the format.  We hope you enjoy the news that is coming out of Nanakuli.


Here is the website address for Ka Leo ‘O Nanakuli:
