May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii

Today was Hale Kula's May Day Performance, and it was really neat to watch and learn about their culture. They had a boy and a girl represent all the islands and explained a little bit about what that island offered to the Hawaiian culture. The May Day Queen did her own dance for everyone at the end, but the biggest enjoyment I think for the crowd was seeing the staff perform! They had a Ladies number which our own principal performed, and then they had the Men do a number which was totally full of character and very amuzing to say the least. Of course, I am very partial to the dances my little Joshua and Hailey did. Each grade had a "themed" song where they dressed according to what the song was about. Kindergarten did "The World is a Rainbow", and 5th grade did "Fireworks" by Katy Perry. They really practiced hard and it showed. The weather did not disappoint, (we have had non-stop rain for the past 6 days!) but it definitely could have been less humid! Here are just a few shots from such a fabulous day..

This is where the King and Queen and all their "Royal Subjects" sit. I don't know if you can tell, but the rainbow is actually all the handprints of the kids in the school.

This is his student teacher Ms. Akuna. She was wonderful with the kids.

Here is Josh walking his chair to put into position before the performance.

Our principal is in the middle in the black, go Mrs. Iwase!!

Hailey's Class was in white, and Julia is in front of her in blue for her class. (Hence the theme red, white and blue for the song.)

This was our May Day Queen, and she lives two doors down from us, Kaycee Paul. She did a fantastic job!
