Halloween Fun

October 31st saw our haumāna dressing up and playing games with their fellow classmates. We had Haumāna dressed as a dinosaur, alien, and even a cow. Our Kumuʻs got in the spirit as the 7th-grade team dressed as Expo pens. We ended the day with grade-level games looking to get our haumāna ready for the nightʻs activities. Great job to all who participated! See story »


Our Kula Waena Team ʻŌpeʻapeʻa visited our elementary students to talk about our native Hawaiian hoary bat or ʻōpeʻapeʻa. Members gave a short presentation about the bat and then took the haumāna outside for a scavenger hunt. The haumāna were placed into small groups looking for invisible bat logos hidden around campus. Students used the clues to find possible locations of the logos and then poured water on spots to reveal the hidden bat logo.

Both the MS and the ES haumāna enjoyed a morning exploring and learning together.
