Each week, the students at Aka’ula School publish a newsletter to highlight their accomplishments at Molokai’s only private school.

The school in Kualapu’u, for grades five through eight, focuses on offering traveling and hands-on learning experiences for its students. Similar in style to an expeditionary schools, Aka’ula engages the students in learning by getting them involved in their local community as well as issues that affect the world at large.

The four Devera-Kuahuia sisters attend Aka’ula School. Three of the sisters wrote stories about cats for the current school newsletter. Enjoy!

Cat Garden News

Domino and Iki
By Joy DeVera-Kuahuia

Domino is a cat who does not want to be by other cats. Domino likes to be by himself. He is the cat who likes to be friends with people and children. Domino loves to be petted, and he loves his food real close to him. Domino loves to have a toy with him so he can play with it. Domino loves mice, so when I give him a mouse, he will grab it and put in the middle of his paw. Then he chews on it.

Iki loves to walk around in her cage. What I like about Iki is that she loves to sit in the cat litter. Iki is 12 years old and I am only 11 years old. I love cats. They are part of my life and they are animals that I love to take care of and keep company.

Baby kitten for adoption
By Gracie DeVera-Kuahuia

One of the new kittens is named Sparkle. She likes to play and when you carry her she will make the cute eyes to put her down. Then, when you put her down she will run crazy like a fast cheetah. Sometimes you can’t catch her with your hands, and sometimes you can’t stop her from running. When the kittens are alone, she cuddles up with her three sisters so she can get as warm as a baby rat. Sparkles needs a home. Hopefully, it will be with her sisters. She plays with them using the rolling balls and they cahse the b alls like they are rats running away.

Sparkles was camera shy but her sisters are Stripes, Precious and Cutie who is also camera shy. All kittens are 3-4 months old and have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and de-wormed. They are healthy and free of fleas. Call Carol at 658-0398 to adopt.

Batman
By Skylar Kuahuia

Batman is a cat who lives in the cat garden. He is blind, but cute. Instead of walking by sight, he walks using his other senses. He can tell if you are right next to him. He also likes to play. Batman has some serious skills using his senses. Come to think of it, he likes to just lie around. He likes it at the cat garden. It makes him think he’s home. Batman is extremely cute and is a favorite cat of everyone who visits!

      I know, get student writers, brilliant idea! Still developing business plan so I can actually pay my freelancers — students and adults — to contribute. I actually do have some money I can use to pay freelancers right now if anyone presents an original story to me.

    pay?

    i’m goin out a journalistic limb here, but i think a scoop or two at snack ‘n go might be ample (and delicious) compensation for a follow up piece on the placement of these photogenic felines penned by moloka’i’s budding news hounds.

    pretty certain that is more than huffington pays her contributors.

    PLEASE. If you are looking for a kitten or an older cat, call Carol. These are socialized cats that are looking for a lovely, caring home. If you see a cat without clipped ears, try to trap it and take to Vet.
    Thanks to the kids for writing such cute stories about the cats. Looking forward to more.

    Really enjoyed the writing about the cat garden cats. Feel as thoug I am right there with them sharing the experience warms my heart to see young people being involved in a positive.
    The cat garden is a special place and without it many cats on Molokai would no place to go.
    Keep up the nice writings and goofy luck in school.
