A Message from your Principal
Aloha Parents and Guardians!
Our campus has been buzzing with excitement as we approach our annual East Honolulu Food Festival. As our one and only major parish fundraiser, a great deal of time, commitment, and hard work has been put toward the event. I would like to extend a big mahalo to all of our Na Hoku families who contributed silent auction donations, to our numerous parent and grandparent volunteers who have been spending endless hours on campus preparing for the event, and of course, to all of our ticket and VIP table supporters. I am confident that it will be a wonderful event and I am excited to announce that this year's school's proceeds will be going toward cafeteria upgrade campaign.
Next week, you will be receiving your 2017-18 registration packages in the mail. One important step in preparing for the next school year is completing the required forms. In the past, all the forms were required for every child in the family. This year, we have attempted to facilitate this process. For example, instead of having to complete emergency cards for each child in duplicate, you will receive a Family Information form that you will be asked to verify or update. Should you have any questions, once you receive the packet, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
As we approach the month of May, let us remember that in the Catholic church, we dedicate the month to our Blessed Mother, Mary. This Christian custom of dedicating the month of May to the Blessed Virgin arose at the end of the 13th century as a means of obtaining prayers for peace. The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of the Church and therefore the example, as well as the guide and inspiration, of everyone who seeks to be close to God.
And as always, it is great joy to share a few memorable recent school highlights with you and may God continue to bless you all with much happiness and health.
Mrs. Margaret Rufo
