Senior Service Project

Hey Seniors! Next week Thursday, March 2, 2023 we will be holding our Senior Service Project. It will be at Ho'olulu Complex Area (aka Wong Stadium, The Civic, and Edith Kanaka'ole Stadium). Community Service projects allow us, as students, to give back to our community! In order to participate in this service project, you will need to have a permission form filled out. If you did not receive one in your period 1 class, or you do not have a Period 1, please see Ms. Switzer to obtain one. All permission forms must be submitted to Ms. Switzer by Monday February 27th, 2023.


Aloha students. We are so excited to invite you to be a part of the spring musical! We need people who want to work behind the scenes, create sets, run sound, act, sing, dance and more! Auditions will be held the following Tuesday, February 28th at 3pm. Hope to see you there!

Astronomy Career Panel

Aloha, Vikings!  Have you ever thought of a career in Astronomy?  Or Engineering? Do you want to learn more about these possibilities?  You're in luck!  Journey Through the Universe Week starts February 27th, and we have many presenters scheduled to be on campus.  Some of you may be meeting presenters through your classes, but we also have some that are open to anyone interested in signing up.

On Tuesday, February 28th, an Astronomy Career Panel will be here during pds 3 and 5.  And on Wednesday, March 1st, a local Hilo boy working on his PhD at UC Irvine is going to talk with us about his educational journey so far, and give us insights on the many possible ways you could go if you're interested in Engineering.  See Ms. Lawrence or Mrs. Frias in N-103 to pick up a pass if you are interested in signing up for either of these sessions.  We hope to see you there!

[VIDEO] Financial Friday

Hey Vikings, it’s finally the end of the week, which means you know what time it is! Financial Friday! My name is King James, and I am a member of the Student Credit Union. Today's financial tip is all about convenience and freedom of having your own money available when you need it.  How, you may ask? Open a checking account


To open a checking account: you must have a parent or guardian on the account with you and be at least 13 years old.  To open the checking account, visit our Hilo Branch located behind Just Cruisin Coffee.  You can get a debit card that day! Go Get your Financial Freedom Vikings!


Also, the Student Credit union is hiring new student tellers. This will be a great opportunity to gain experience and earn money while in school. If interested, pick up an application at the SCU branch located at the LRC. This segment is brought to you by the Hilo High Student Credit Union. Have a great day Vikings!
