"It's been a fun and eventful week at the ALC as we are hosting our Utah College Application Week. This is an amazing opportunity for ALL students to learn and prepare to attend college someday--not just our seniors! Because there are so many kinds of colleges and degrees, college can be a reality for everybody. 

No Two Hands Alike

Ms. Beyal is one of the favorite guest speakers that the Elementary Education Block has come every year.  She has all the students line up and put their hands out. Then she has them compare the color of their own hands with everyone else around them.  The interesting thing about this experiment is that there is NO TWO HAND COLORS ALIKE!  She then talks to them about differences and about not judging people according to their race or color.  It is a very eye-opening exercise for the students.

It is always fun to have guest speakers come into the classroom. But the Education Block loves when Mr. Ralph Jamsa comes to visit and teach them team building activities.  Mr. Jamsa came and taught the students a rope team building activity that had them concentrating and using their thinking and teamwork skills.

 Thank you Mr. Jamsa for taking time out to benefit the students here at the ALC with your knowledge and expertise.

Mr. Albright is constantly giving his elementary education classes some fun hands-on activities. This past week they were able to do one, in particular, is entitled, The Acid River. 

 "Acid River" as an outdoor opening activity to warm up the group. It also requires people to get into each other's personal space which helps open them up and begin to connect with each other more quickly.

This activity can be used to stimulate insights into problem-solving, strategy, challenging, collaboration, teamwork, communication, mutual support, encouragement, and celebration.

This week is College Application week at the ALC. Our counselor, Annette Pukahi, has worked very hard to get a week of information and material out to all the students here at the ALC. She has swag, videos on the importance of college, and college bingo games for the students to do throughout the week.  She is also helping the Seniors fill out College applications. 

This week will be used in helping the students get the resources and knowledge of how to apply for colleges, and the importance of stepping up to their own education and plan to go to college.

  The Aloha Luau Center would like to wish you all a Happy Halloween from the sunny hallways of our school.

As you enter our fine establishment, you are sure to find relaxing ukelele music, and sounds of the Ocean and beautiful scenery, the minute you step through the doors of our establishment.  The smells of good Hawaiin food would reach your nostrils, along with seeing occasional sunburned faces, and non-sunburned faces and patrons lounging in the hammocks positioned in convenient places for that nap on the beach.

 Halloween was in full Swing the whole Month of October at the ALC.  From Witches, To HOGWARTS, to Hawaii... There is ALWAYS something going on here.  We have had so much fun watching the students walk in the front doors and looking to see what was new that day!!  The changes took place either in the office, in the front display case, or in the front entryway......  WAS SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH THEIR FACES AND HEAR THEIR COMMENTS.

 One more way of proof that shows, the ALC is ALL ABOUT THE STUDENTS HERE!!
