Parker Middle School celebrates unity day
Parker Middle School held its Unity Day on Feb. 8. This was the second of three Unity Days, which are days designed to build camaraderie between the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders.
The theme was “creating and appreciating art as a noble expression of the human spirit,” according to middle school Spanish teacher and Unity Day coordinator Melissa Lunchick.
Students spent the morning in a visual or performing art activity of their choice led by a visiting artist. They enjoyed mobile making, shrink art jewelry making, digital photography, henna tattoo art and contemporary and hip-hop dance.
In the afternoon, the middle school ventured to Kihapai Hooulu, the school’s community garden. Here, led by Garden Coordinator Jared David-Chapman, they spent time observing, sketching and writing about the kalo they had previously planted, thus integrating creativity with Hawaiian values, culture and sustainability.
The next Unity Day will take place on April 12.
