Water Play Day was a success, thanks in large part to the great volunteer soldiers from our military partner 25th HHBN. Thank you to all the parents that picked up water balloons and brought them back filled today (for the first time we did not have to fill more during the day!) There are still some coolers and baskets that held balloons to be picked up in P14. It was great so many parents wanted to help with Water Play and I couldn’t respond to the flood of blue papers :( The weather held and no one was injured which is the best.

A yearbook is a wonderful keepsake to remember classmates and good times from the school year. It's a piece of childhood not just from Hale Kula but also Hawaii!
Yearbooks are still available first come first serve for $20 until we run out
