New Year Message From Principal Dircks

Happy New Year and Aloha!  

I wish to welcome all of you to a brand new year. I sincerely hope that this past holiday season was restful and family centered. I recognize that we may still be shaking off the dust from 2018, but I also believe that for Hilo High School, we will continue to recognize our responsibility in providing the best education possible and prepare all of your children for future successes.


With that said, I wish to welcome back all of our 1,200+ students and their parents and guardians to the 2019 school year as we work collectively ensure that all of our educational partnership(s) remains focused and strong.


If I may, Ernest Hemingway once said, “Before you react, think. Before you spend, earn, Before you criticize, wait. Before you quit, try.” The key action verbs Hemingway uses are: think, earn, wait and try. Let us attempt to use these words in everything we do in the upcoming year!


With Great VIKING Pride,

Principal R. Dircks
