Dear Parents,

We held the first Alaka’i Ohana Multicultural Feast last Friday, Nov. 16, and enjoyed a day of fun, fellowship, and great food. I would like to thank all of the parents and families who attended, brought food, helped set up, serve, and clean up afterward. There were so many smiling faces and full tummies! One of our parents, Millicent Cummings, created this beautiful video of the day, accompanied by music she wrote and performed.

We have a short week due to the holiday, with an early dismissal on Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 1:40 p.m. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
