Proud of our St. Anthony students that were recently awarded certificates for participating in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) essay contest. One student, Senior Lora Dodson, won the Maui contest, winning $25 in prizes! Her essay was submitted for the State contest and she won that as well, receiving an additional $50 in prizes in that level. Her essay will now be forwarded on to compete on a national level. Pray for Lora’s success!
January 30, 2017 – HAPPY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK!
JANUARY HIGHLIGHTS. The first month of 2017 has brought many blessings at St. Anthony Middle School and High School.

- Senior Keoni Lee’s passion for drones was on display atSaturday’sOpen House as he and 20-plus students from 6th– through 12-grade shared their positive educational and co-curricular experiences to the dozens of families who came to see what their school has to offer. Mahalo to the students and staff who welcomed dozens of guests to the St. Anthony campus – preschool, grade school, middle school and high school.
- For the first time in a long time, or may be even ever, we hosted a Girls Soccer game on Sullivan Field.
