HOST: Aloha Vikings! This is your K-V-I-K-S News Bulletin. I’m Michael and I’m Geoffrey, and today’s date is Monday, January 9th, 2023. The periods are 2-STARS-4-6

[VIDEO] May Day Nominations

Aloha kākou!  ʻO wau ʻo Alohalani! a ʻo wau ʻo Kamaha`o!

We are here to talk to you about this yearʻs May Day Hōʻike.  Our May Day Hōʻike will be on Friday, May 12th, 2023,  in our Hilo High School Gymnasium!  Once again we will have 2 shows, one during the day for only the Hilo High students, staff and faculty and one in the evening which will be open to the public.  This yearʻs theme is Like nō i ka laʻi o Hanakahi, which literally means: All the same in the calm of Hanakahi and tells us that there is unity and we are all as one.

Before we can move forward with our May Day planning, we are asking for YOUR help.   Today, in your STARS advisory class, your class will be nominating 2 kāne (boys) and 2 wahine (girls) from your grade level that you all feel would best represent the Viking and Aloha spirit.  Please keep in mind that these nominees must be willing to learn and perform a hula in front of the entire school.

So, please work together in your STARS advisory and submit those names to your teacher.  Mahalo nui loa no ke kōkua!  I lā maikaʻi!  A hui hou!

Hero Store

Report Cards will be distributed on Tuesday, January 10, in Period 1.  Bring your report card to the Hero Store (B35) during morning recess on Tuesday January 10 and collect some Hero points!  You will receive 10 points just for bringing it in to show us.  You'll receive an additional 10 points if you don't have any D's or F's, and you could receive an additional 10 points if you have all A's.  Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday at morning recess!
