Veterans Day Help

For over 20 years, our 5th grade students have worked hard to create bouquets and leis for Veterans Day. They create the leis and bouquets in the morning and spend the afternoon placing them on each and every grave in the local veteran cemeteries.

This year they will need to make 5,100 bouquets and leis! We will need a lot of community support this year as the donations are very limited. Every donation of anthuriums, long-lasting flowers, foliage, and leis help to bring this project together. Please help by sharing our story with your friends, family, and neighbors. Help collect and drop off all donations on Friday, November 9th in front of the office, Kino'ole drop-off, Andrew's Gym, or to your child's teacher. We would also gladly accept any cardboard boxes for transportation of the bouquets/flowers.

Thank you for all your support!
