School Happenings

Fri. Aug. 19               NO SCHOOLStatehood Day in Hawai’i
            From our principal, Mrs. Iwase, “This Friday, we celebrate Statehood Day in Hawaii. 1959 was the year that Hawaii became the 50th state. In that same year, the first students walked through the halls of a brand new school, Hale Kula Elementary. Most of you were not even born yet, but I remember the day when Hawaii became a state as a day of celebrations. As a little girl, I wasn't really sure about the significance of this event. I remember parading through Wahiawa up California Avenue from Ka’ala Elementary School to Fred Wright Park with my schoolmates from Helemano Elementary School and lots of other students from neighboring schools. We all waved American flags, and a euphoric mood prevailed amongst the crowd and the participants. Back in 1959, Daniel K. Inouye was elected to represent Hawaii as its first elected Congressman, and today, our school is named after him. Times have changed since that day back in 1959. We continue to celebrate becoming the 50th state with a holiday. Enjoy the day off!”
