I wanted to to send a message to everyone to say hello. My name is Jonathan
Yorck and I have been a kindergarten teacher at Punahou School for the past
19 years. I am also the coordinator of Holidays and Festivals of Earth
Calendar Online (notice the change of name). I believe this message is
going to six continents which I find quite amazing as we are creating our
own global community. I was lucky enough to meet Lynne Ralph, Judith
Bennett and Torigoe Yuko and Genshi (remember in Japan and China last name
is first) in Australia in February. I am thrilled to be working with such
dedicated and professional people. I am excited about this project and I
hope you are too.
We have all been working hard to make this project interesting and
hopefully easy for you to participate. Many thanks to Lynne Ralph for
making explicit instructions on how to upload your contributions.
Obviously, we all might have some difficulties, but we are here to assist
you if needed. I continuously have to ask my fellow coordinators many
questions as this has been a wonderful learning experience for me. As we
say in Hawaii "no shame" to ask questions!! Regardless of your expertise, I
would love to see your contributions. I show my students in my classroom
new additions to the Earth Calendar Online when they appear. Feel free to
participate in any category.
Remember we are here to assist you.
Mahalo (thank you),
