                     .      Haleakala Hwy - Park in marked stalls in the parking lot. Most buses enter on this side.

PLEASE STAND inside the gate along the sides of the entrance, facing the rising sun; otherwise, the students will catch the sun’s glare & not see you clearly.


WHY:          Since 1996, the PCNC has organized this sign waving event to “let our students know they are special." It encourages our students & adult participants; the adults show through example their school spirit; & the participating adults find the camaraderie fun! It relates to our KKHS Mission Statement by showing Respect for others & our school; and to Relevancy by showing that ALL students are special including their differing personalities & view points. Some student & teacher responses: "Great feeling.” "The kids were in the best mood ALL DAY! Thank you!” “Lots of smiles & shaka signs.” “Great idea!"


SUGGESTED     "We Love You"                  "Have a Great Day!"              "Na Ali`i Are Special"

SIGNS:               "Na Ali`i Are Great!"          "Na Ali`i Pride"  



Your organization's banner. In the past we have had managers/employees hold banners with their business' name, e.g. The Maui News, Longs Drugs, Foodland, McDonalds, emergency services & Hawaii Air National Guard. Or if you are a politician, please bring a campaign banner with your name, so our students may recognize you.
