What is Infinite Campus?
Infinite Campus is a web-based program that provides parents with the ability to view academic information for their secondary school child(ren) through the Infinite Campus Portal.

Parents can view the following real-time information about your secondary school children:

● Attendance

● Grades

● Class schedules

● Assignments

The Portal will also contain a messaging function to help you communicate with your children’s teachers. Information for all secondary school children in your family will be accessible under one login, no matter what school they attend.  Access to the portal will also be available via a mobile app for any Apple iOS or Android device.  
Please look for the Parent Portal Announcement Letter and the attached Census Verification Report (sent home with students on 8/17) which contained important household information.  Instructions and the codes to activate your parent accounts were sent home with students after we received the signed Census Verification Report here in the office.  
If you have questions or need assistance, please email our Curriculum Coordinator, Grace, at makaimoku-young@rlsms.com.

Students got access to their Infinite Campus Portal accounts on August 23, 2016 during their Math class, if they were in school.  Students can see their Math teachers if they still need to setup their Infinite Campus Portal accounts.  
Anyone who needs help with their username or passwords, should come to the office or email Grace with your full legal name (include your child's name if you are a parent).

Stevenson Middle School dedicates stunning new mural with message of hope


December 1, 2016


​​​​HONOLULU – Students at Robert Louis Stevenson Middle School dedicated a beautiful new campus mural depicting a message of hope, covering an outer wall of its new Science & Technology Center, spanning two stories and over 1,000 square feet.   


Created in collaboration with local artist Estria Miyashiro, the Estria Foundation and the Mele Murals public art movement, the new mural is entitled "Kalamakūokeau," translated as "The Torch of This Generation," and was inspired by a theme of “hope."  The images depict King David Kalakaua, Queen Liliʻuokalani, Princess Kaʻiulani, school namesake Robert Louis Stevenson and Hawaiʻi’s warriors passing the symbolic torch of hope to Hawaiʻi’s youth.   


“Stevenson Middle is thrilled to dedicate this wonderful mural for our students, alumni and our community,” said Principal Linell Dilwith.  “Our entire student body took part in creating this vibrant artwork and we thank our Lead Artists Estria Miyashiro, Wayne Takazono and Eugene Kristofher, and the entire Estria Foundation for making this project a hands-on experience filled with cultural lessons that our students will never forget.”


All 665 Stevenson Middle students participated in the mural’s creation with guidance from Lead Artists Estria, Takazono and Kristofher, Mele Murals Program Manager Mahea Akau, along with Stevenson Middle Principal Dilwith, Vice-Principal Sonja Samsonas, Counselor Christian Ellis and teachers Lakecia King and Noah Kawano.   


In the production phase, students brush-painted, shaded, and then spray-painted under the tutelage of artist and mentor Estria. To help dedicate the completed artwork, students introduced the mural to the community through Hawaiian chanting, singing, and performances by the Stevenson Middle School Hula Halau.
