Representative Holt's Message
Ho‘ona‘auao - A good education remains the fastest way to a higher standard of living.  Relevance is critical to educational success for many reasons. It is the cognitive glue that makes learning stick. It improves academic success, while enhancing relationships between educators, students, and their communities. It empowers learners and ensures equal learning opportunities. Just as important, relevance helps students prepare to live in a multi-ethnic and pluralistic society.
This week we honored teachers, campus leaders and students at the State Capitol during Education Week, they were recognized for their contributions to student success in the classrooms and for community service contributions in the State of Hawai‘i.

Also, Congratulations to Kapālama Elementary School as a recipient of the Hawai'i State Foundation on Culture & the Arts Partnership Grant.  The grant received, enables Kapālama Elementary to increase their capacity to deliver robust art lessons which are then integrated into their science and social studies curriculum.

Kick Butts Day at the Capitol
This week, Hawai'i youth joined thousands nationwide as they participated in Kick Butts Day at the State Capitol.  Our Youth comprised of high school and college students supported by the Hawai'i Public Health Institute and Coalition for a Tobacco Free Hawai'i came together to support specific legislation which would prohibit secondhand smoke in vehicles when a minor is present.  On Kick Butts Day, our youth stood with their elected officials to support a worthy cause.
