On behalf of PIDF, we would like to present to you the Ka Paʻalana graduating class of 2015! These 40 graduates, including two adults, are off to the next step. Our graduates will be attending preschool, kindergarten and further education in the fall. Out of these 40 graduates, we had two adults who earned their GED with the help of Ka Paʻalana’s adult education program. We are very proud of each and every one of our graduates and all that they have accomplished here at our program. We wish them and their families all the best in the future.
We would like to give a special Mahalo to Locations Hawai’i LLC for their generous donations. Their representatives, Michael Marks and Kengo Ueno, presented to Ka Paʻalana a monetary donation of $2,100. Thank you very much for attending the graduation ceremony, and for your continued support and generosity.
We would also like to express our deep appreciation for guest speaker Sam Kapu III, who presented us with a wonderful graduation speech, and entertained us with a song that was in keeping with our “Super Hero” theme, Maui the Hawaiian Superman.
A big shout out to the Ke Kama Pono Program participants for attending and helping serve lunch to the families and guests. And, to all the administration, board members, family and friends of the graduates for attending this event.
We would also like to thank the Honolulu Police Department, Honolulu Fire Department, and Honolulu EMS team for volunteering your time.
Last but not least, Mahalo Nui to the staff members of the Ka Paʻalana program for doing such a wonderful job decorating and setting up this event. Not only that, but thank you for your dedication to our keiki and their families and for another wonderful school year. Congrats class of 2015!
