Parker Lower School celebrated its ninth annual May Day Ho‘ike on May 2. Students in grades K-5 performed various chants, songs and hula reflecting this year’s theme, “I ka wa ma mua, I ka wa ma hope,” which is interpreted as “The wisdom of our elders is the torch which enlightens the path of the children.” Students began preparing for the May Day celebration in September under the instruction of visiting kumu Liana Aveiro and Pua Garmon. The school thanks both kumu for their hard work, dedication and guidance, the Hapa Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation for its generous support, the Parker PTSO, and all of the volunteers, families and students who helped make the event a success.
