Tuesday, April 2, from 8:45 am to 2:20 pm, Maui Preparatory Academy invites you to bring a friend to see the incredible variety of our students’ work at our annual Experiential and Project Based Learning Fair. The purpose of this learning fair, which has grown out of our Schools of the Future Grant from Hawaii Community Foundation, is for students to present to a diverse audience, engaging both adults and peers in discussions about real world applications of learning. By encouraging parents and community members to attend we hope to show our students the incredible degree to which adults take an interest in our students’ progress. Adult turnout for this event provides students with a fresh audience for their presentations and raises the stakes on work quality through a sense of accountability and increased visibility. This event is also becoming an opportunity for the broader community to see examples of Maui Prep students’ work products and the breadth of our dynamic program. So please, mark us on your calendar, and bring a friend for fun day of looking at hands-on-learning here on our beautiful campus!
Students will attend school for their normal school-day hours, while parents and other community visitors are invited to see presentations starting with an assembly at 8:45 am and continuing through 2:20 pm. A brown-bag lunch picnic will run from 12-1, with a hot dog fundraiser available from the 5th grade parents.
Additionally, with April 2 being World Autism Awareness Day, Mr. John Deal and Ms. Katie Ornelas will be providing an Autism information presentation at 9:15 and we are encouraging students and parents to wear blue to show their support.
Come out to enjoy the dynamic fun of students showing off their hands-on-learning next Tuesday.
