Friday, May 3, was the Pahoa Elementary School Ho‘ike program. Along with a great turnout of parents and family members, the community came together to provide some extra activities and fun for the keiki. Following a wonderful performance by the students of Pahoa Elementary school, ho‘ike field day began.
