Mahalo to the PTO for all of their hard work in organizing and putting on this event each year!

Get ready for Hoʻolauleʻa 2024

Feb. 5, 2024

This year, our annual PTO Ho‘olaule‘a will be held on Saturday, February, 24th from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. The theme of this year's event is "Ola Ka Inoa o Ka Wai: The name of the water lives on". 

Always an enjoyable day filled with fun, entertainment, and ʻono food, make your plans now to be here on 2/24, and do one better and prepare by ordering ahead and contributing to the event's success. 

Proceeds from this event are used to provide enrichment grants and scholarships to our KS-Hawai‘i students. Below, you will find additional information and links on different ways you can participate including: 

  • Hoʻolauleʻa Apparel pre-orders (deadline to order is this Thursday, 2/8)

As many of you know, a big part of the success of our event is attributed to the generosity of our 'ohana. A huge portion of our Hoʻolauleʻa is based on donations to help offset the costs. This allows the PTO to continue to give back to our keiki via scholarships and grants.

Our "wishlist" is where we ask for families to kōkua with ingredients or supplies for various food booths and activities that are present at our event. Visit the Sign-up Genius to donate.
