Summer School Weekly Themes

Special Calendar Day
Monday, July 15th Ocean Day - Umi no Hi

Hawaii Surfing Week


We will get our toes in the sand and learn about beach life with our tropical-themed Summer School kick off! This involves craft projects, lively music and dance, and easy tropical recipes. Children love learning, creating, playing and relaxing with their friends under the sunshade, in the sand and pretending to surf.

Ho'olu komo la kaua!
