Aloha Students, Families and Friends,

Congratulations to the students of St. Andrew’s Schools!
We are so proud of your accomplishments and your commitment to excellence. These awards represent how each of you have honored our school motto Kūlia i  Ka Nu’u (“Strive for the highest”) in all that you do. We celebrate your gifts and talents and your commitment to doing your best. You have worked hard and have shown great courage and compassion for others in facing this unprecedented global pandemic. We are inspired by your love of learning and your care for each other.
In striving for the highest, we must remember that we do not strive alone. Our successes are in large part because of the people in our lives who have helped us along the way. So as we honor our awardees, we also honor the teachers, classmates, friends and parents who helped you along the way. Please take a moment over the next few weeks to reflect on the ways in which people have supported you, encouraged you, and helped you learn, grow and thrive. The next time you shout out our motto, Kūlia i Ka Nuʻu, remember that we are better together and that together we can lift each other up and accomplish great things.

While these circumstances require us to celebrate you in a manner different than we had intended, please know that—throughout this time of flux—our pride in you remains constant. We are so proud of your accomplishments and the fine people you are becoming.

Ruth R. Fletcher, Ph.D.
Head of School
