Mea Hawai'i Assembly with Uncle Blair Sataraka
By Chris ’20
On Friday, we started our day walking into the pavilion singing Eia Makou. We had our daily birthday book sharing from Ms. Gabby. Today, two students shared their birthday books, Raiden who turned 8 and his brother Renyn who shared his FIRST birthday book as a Hanahau‘oli student! Following that a few teachers shared their birthdays, Mrs. Yamamoto, Mrs. Deluca and Ms. Lee Loy. Our second, and last announcement came from Ms. Lisa telling us about after school enrichment classes and sign-ups. Kukunaokalā had the task of leading thought of the day; they chose Kūlia i Ka Nu‘u - strive to reach the top! Uncle Blair chose to do assembly today and it also happens to be his birthday! Happy Birthday, Anakala! Uncle Blair chose to do the assembly about Mana‘o o Ka Lā which means Thought of the Day and had each class show their assigned Thought of the Day. 6th Grade chose to do Pūpūkahi i Holomua - Unite to Move Forward! Together we learned how to sing happy birthday in Hawaiian. We then closed with ‘Oli Mahalo and our School Song.
