Good morning Vikings, today’s date is Thursday, August 17, 2023, the periods today are 1-3-5-7. Today, during lunch, please come to the patio for a showcase of our school clubs! Maybe you want to join! Today’s menu is French Toast Sticks for Wiki and Spaghetti for lunch. And now. Please give your attention for a special presentation.
On August 8th, 2023, dry conditions sparked multiple wildfires in Maui and rapidly spread with the aid of hurricane-strength winds. One of these fires was sparked near the historical town of Lahaina. In only a matter of hours, this fire decimated the town, ravaging thousands of homes and businesses with no time to react. It has destroyed historical landmarks critical to our island’s history, culture, and identity, and upended the lives of the town’s 13,000 residents. It has killed over a hundred people and become the deadliest wildfire the U.S has seen in over a century, and is perhaps the worst disaster in our State’s history.
All volunteer work and donations are welcome and encouraged to help, whether it be now, or in the future. Horrible events like these are when we need to band together and help our community, not be against them. We as a community need to stay strong and persevere through the hardships and give our helping hands to those in times of suffering, loss, grief and anger.
Because you can take away people’s homes and livelihoods, but you can NEVER take our aloha, and our love for each other. You cannot take our sense of responsibility for our people and communities no matter what. This is what is going to help pick up the pieces from this horrible tragedy, and what will help people heal. And that is why it is so important that we at Hilo High step up now and into the future to show our support in this difficult time.
HOST: Here is today's - menu.
For Wiki: French Toast Sticks, Unsweetened Applesauce, and Fresh Fruit
For Lunch: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Green Salad, and Whole Grain Roll
