There was a whole lotta shakin’ going on during Kama‘ehu’s block party on July 30, 2010 at the Onelau‘ena Shelter in Kalaeloa. Families and friends gathered to have a groovy time while celebrating the achievements of shelter parents who successfully completed their parenting classes and youth who attended Kama‘ehu’s entire summer program with five or fewer absences.
To kick up the fun factor, Kama‘ehu staff decided to use the movie “Grease” as the theme for the night. All of Kama‘ehu’s students and staff dressed up for the event. The menu consisted of hamburgers, hot dogs, carrot sticks, coke/root beer floats provided by Kama‘ehu, and cupcakes provided by the Army MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) families that live in the area.
Parents who completed Sterling Lee’s parenting classes received Certificates of Achievement, while students who attended program the entire summer with five or fewer absences received special gifts from their teachers.
The highlight of the celebration was Kama‘ehu’s rendition of “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightning,” and “We Go Together.” Youth grades K to 12 dressed up in their “Grease-y” costumes and put on a show that everyone in attendance would never forget.
The night was capped off with a PowerPoint presentation which showed what the students had done all summer long, and a movie. It was a night that was filled with fun and excitement; it was AUTOMATIC, SYSTEMATIC, HYDROMATIC, IT WAS GREASED LIGHTNING!
