Highlands Leadership Conference 2017

The inaugural Highlands Leadership Conference was a big time success! All the Pearl City elementary schools — Momilani, PCES, Manana, PCHES, Waiau, Palisades, and Lehua — all came down to the Student Council Room for a fun-filled day of learning and lots of memories! The main purpose of HLC2017 was to institute a yearly Pearl City Complex student council summit, creating a venue for idea sharing and collaboration that had not previously existed. This event would provide a venue for all of us to 1.) identify and understand the structure of Student Council/Leadership at each Pearl City school 2.) how we could cooperate in activities as a complex.  This vertical alignment would result in mutual understanding and future collaborations between not only our Student Councils/Leadership, but also collaborations between entire schools 3.) get to know the advisors at each of the Pearl City complex schools, and 4.) build and improve relationships throughout the Pearl City Complex Student Councils. This collaboration will help us with our main Student Council goal of providing amazing student activities to make school a safe and fun place to learn across the entire Pearl City Complex! Our very own Highlands Intermediate Student Council members helped facilitate the activities, lessons, energizers, and challenges, making sure every guest felt safe and comfortable throughout the day. To top it all off, we had a special guest performer, a magician -- Takeshi — to perform a an amazing magic show and to emphasize the theme for HLC2017, “The Magic of Leadership!” As the day started to come to an end, we wrapped it up with a lesson on how to leave a legacy….We said our goodbyes to the elementary student councils and thanked them for attending. Everyone had fun and learned more about leadership in the process. We hope next year can be just as great, or maybe even more magical than this year’s event!  Taylor, SG Vice-President

Have you heard? The Elections 2017 is over which means we have our new leaders. Students had to go on tallyspace.com to vote for the candidate of what they think is right for the position. The 7th Graders got to vote for upcoming 8th Grade officers while the 8th Grade got to vote for 9th Grade officers at Pearl CIty High School. Candidates got their message out by hanging posters, flyers around the campus for weeks during the Elections Campaign 2017. What a tough competition that was! On February 24, the results were announced live on the intercom to the whole school. Congratulations to the winners and our new Student Council officers for 2017-18 sy!! Don’t forget even if you didn’t win, you are still winners in our eyes ;) Once again, Congratulations!!   Errol, 8th Grade President
