Waimea Elementary School May Day set


Waimea Elementary School students will share oli, or chants; mele, Hawaiian songs, and hula from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Friday, May 17, in their annual May Day event at the Waimea Elementary School field. The celebration will open with introduction of the fifth-grade court led by King Micah Low and Queen Kayla Miura.

The theme this year is “A‘ohe lokomaika‘i i nele i ka pana‘i,” meaning “No kind deed has ever lacked its reward.” An opportunity to help another is a gift and to live aloha is to have a giving nature, said event coordinators.
