Senior Projects Class of 2013

Since 1999, Kekaulike High School has participated in an ever evolving Senior capstone assignment. In its current form, the integrated Senior Project, students are given the opportunity to showcase all that they have learned in twelve years of school with a project that challenges their abilities, stretches their limitations, and culminates in a rewarding final activity to their high school careers. 

The Senior Project consists of four components: Product, Paper, Portfolio, and Presentation. The first step in the process is deciding on a topic for the Project and a commitment to a tangible Product that the student will complete. This leads to a research Paper on the topic, an on-line Portfolio about what the student has learned and experienced during the process, and a PowerPoint Presentation of their Senior Project to a community panel of adults. Students will be working on these components in their senior Social Studies and English classes, with on-campus mentors, and on their own time outside of school.

The Kekaulike Senior Project affords students the ability to demonstrate their proficiency in the General Learner Outcomes (GLOs), personal responsibility and life skills, and career and college readiness while showcasing their individual talents and passions.

Failure to have a YES in your Social Studies teacher's gradebook for any of these seven will result in a failing grade for the class for the semester. While many of you are doing just fine and need not worry, please make sure that you have them done and graded. And if you are falling behind, communicate with your Social Studies teacher and on-campus mentor ASAP to make sure you can get them completed.Letter of IntentParent Consent/Liability FormProduct Plan (approved electronically by you on-campus mentor)Commitment PosterProgress Check #1Passing Senior PaperProgress Check ...

  • Evidence Check #1 Seniors, The first Evidence Check for your products is due by October 23 to your Social Studies teacher. This is where you show your on-campus mentor the evidence you've collected for the tasks you agreed to complete before October 23 on your Product Plan. Fill out and print the evidence caption before you meet your on-campus mentor, bring the evidence, and then have them sign the form. When that is done you turn in the evidence caption to your Social Studies teacher. This is so we know you are on task to complete your product, and is one of the mandatory assignments associated with your senior project.Carosso
