Students will strengthen their sense of belonging by connecting to Hawai‘i. We will explore her rich culture and uncover the beauty of this place we call home by learning mele (poetry) written mostly in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i (native tongue), rooted in wahi pana (legendary place). We will hear from special guest speakers, make crafts, and practice mindfulness.
All Fieldtrip Excursion fees, art supplies, Hawaiian craft materials, and daily snack included. Students will need to bring home lunch on non-excursion days.
