Kula Haʻaha’a held its final awards assembly on Thursday to honor all the haumāna for their outstanding achievements in the Third Trimester. What a fabulous way to end a fantastic year!
Ho’omaika’i, Chayden and Makamae for being selected as our Hāweo Awardees for the month of May. Both of you have shown “ho’oulu” by persevering and growing this school year. Iʻm so proud of you and your accomplishments!
The Rotary Club of Hilo paid a visit to Papa ‘Ekolu today with gifts for everyone… dictionaries! In their mission to help the community, the Rotary Club distributed this handy tool to our haumana to help them further their acquisition of knowledge. Students also learned that members of the club, rotarians, help to fight against a disease called polio by providing vaccinations. Their club has over 1.2 million members worldwide in 34,000 clubs. We are so thankful for their kindness and generosity.
Mahalo nui loa, Rotary Club of Hilo for all you do for us and the community!
Congratulations to Kahiau and Kalia for receiving the Hāweo Award for the month of March! These two students are wonderful examples of student who have demonstrated hoʻoulu. They have grown in so many ways this school year.
Mahalo to the awardees’ ‘ohana for joining in on the celebration which was held at lunch last week!

Last week Friday was Jump Rope for Heart. Our kula ha’aha’a had a fabulous time jumping rope to raise money for a worthy cause. Students collected donations to help the American Heart Society in their mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Great job, keiki!
Papa ʻEkolu Students did a wonderful job in opening up their own businesses. Check out the smiling faces, cool products and fun that we all had at Market Day 2015. Mahalo to our families for helping out with the production of the fabulous products!
Yesterday two students from our Kula Ha’aha’a 3B classroom were honored for receiving the Hāweo Award for the month of January. Cadence and ‘Ailani both consistently demonstrate the Hawaiian value “A’o” by being active and engaged learners in their classroom. Hoʻomaikaʻi e na haumana!
