On Wednesday – August 19th, members from the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel stopped by to drop of boxes of school supplies for each of our classrooms.
This past Saturday, over 76 volunteers from First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaii 3Rs, Doubletree - Hilton, Alana Waikiki Beach Hotel, and members of our JES TEAM spent in their morning in helping to beautify our campus. You may have noticed the freshly painted parking lots (that right .. . both parking lots were painted). First Hawaiian Bank painted all of hte parking stalls and curbs. They even had enough paint to repaint our hopscotch area with our school colors . . blue and yellow! Doubletree - Hilton Alana Waikiki Beach Hotel, Hawaii3Rs, and members of our TEAM (Joyce Felipe, Suzanne Williams, Celia Viernes (and her family), along with 2 of my children) laid wood chips around the base of our trees and constructed a total of 10 raised planter beds. All projects were completed within a 3.5 hour timespan. We all worked as a TEAM to accomplish all of the days tasks.
