Athletics - Lady Panthers Sports Update


As we head into December, just wanted to share some updates and scores from this past week and let everyone know about the upcoming events in sports for the week of November 29th - December 4th. Your Lady Panthers and Pac-5 Wolfpack student-athletes continue to represent well...


The Pac-5 Wolfpack JV Soccer team continued their season with 3 more games. A loss came versus the Kamehameha JV Blue team 2-0 (on Nov. 24) but the team bounced back with a tie with Iolani's team 1-1 (on Nov. 27) and a big 2-1 win over the Punahou JV Blue team (on Nov. 30). 

The Pac-5 Intermediate Swimming team members dove into the pool for a swim meet at Kamehameha Schools on the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving (Nov. 23). In the 50 Freestyle, Addy Wong placed 3rd, Louisa Racsa 7th, and Leilani Smith 14th place respectively.  And in the 100 Breaststroke Addy finished in 6th place overall. 

The Lady Panthers 6th Grade Volleyball team finished their volleyball season by competing in two exciting matches versus the Sacred Hearts Academy Lancers on November 23rd. The first match was a 3-set thriller with the Panthers coming up just short in the 3rd and deciding set ((19-25, 25-21, 26-27). In the second match of the day, it came to a 1-1 draw (16-25, 25-18) as the match had to be called due to time before the 3rd set could be played. Congratulations to the 6th grade Lady Panthers volleyball team, Coach Dennys Salazar, and student assistant Hannah Hirata on an awesome volleyball experience this season!

SPORTS COMING UP FOR THE WEEK (November 29 - December 4)

On Friday (Dec. 3), the Pac-5 Wolfpack Intermediate Swimming team will be diving back into the water for their fourth meet of the ILH season at the Kamehameha Schools pool at 5:00 PM. Good luck to all of our LP Intermediate swimmers on the team. 

The Pac-5 Junior Varsity Soccer team will take the field once again for their next ILH game on Friday (Dec. 3) with a rematch against the Kamehameha JV Blue team at Kapiolani Park (Field #1) at 4:15 PM.

The Pac-5 Intermediate Wrestling team with LP freshmen Ayla Prather will have their third round-robin tournament of the ILH season on Saturday (Dec. 4) at 9:00 AM. 

Good luck to all of our Lady Panthers in Action this week!

Students/Parents/Faculty - Sign up for La Pietras Annual Spelling Bee

Hi all you busy bees!

Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this year's Spelling Bee, exclusively for Middle Schoolers! The 6th grade is well-represented, and that’s great! Come on, 7th and 8th graders, your turn to represent!! Challenge yourself to “go for it.” The only way to improve (at just about anything) is to keep working on it. The Spelling Bee is an opportunity to do just that! There will be certificates for all participants and a special gift for the top three spellers. A limited number of spots are available. The sign-up sheet is on the Music Room door. So join us on December 14th for La Pietra’s Annual Spelling Bee. The winner represents La Pietra at the District Bee on February 25th. And then comes the State Bee. Will you “bee” the one??

Mahalo from your National Honor Society members!

Poem of the Week Nov-30 to Dec-03

Check out this week's poem submitted by seventh-grader Liv K.: 


Out Beyond Ideas 
By Rumi 

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’
doesn’t make any sense.



Thanks for the submission, Liv! If you would like your poem to be featured in the Daily Bulletin, please email your submission to lpascua@lapietra.edu or mhamiltion@lapietra.edu. We are accepting original and already-made poems, song lyrics, and quotes from both students and faculty!
