As part of our morning news we would love to feature a picture of a Kainalu student(s) at an interesting place or accomplishing something great. It could be a picture that a student or parent has taken.

Parents - If you have a picture ( .jpeg ) that fits these criteria, please send it to with a short description that includes who, what and where the picture is about.

We look forward to showcasing our awesome Kainalu students!
