July 1, 2013 -- Our Groundbreaking Ceremony

Everything was ready.  The tent was up, the program was ready, the volunteers were in place, the weather was perfect.  What could go wrong?  Well, we didn't count on a dirt spill on the freeway which closed lanes and delayed our special guests.  The Governor told us to go ahead and start the program, but the shovels for the groundbreaking had not arrived either.  Fortunately, no one seemed to mind; it was an opportunity to meet and converse with others.  Governor Abercrombie, US Senator Hirono, and Superintendent Matayoshi  finally arrived, and the program began.  Everything went smoothly, and there was a feeling of energy and excitement in the air.

I look back on how quickly this project came together, and I am amazed! We found out that we were eligible to apply for funding in September 2011, and in less than 2 years, we are starting on a major project which will transform our school!

Here's a slideshow of today's groundbreaking ceremony and we were featured on KITV news this evening as well.  (Click the hyperlinks to view the slideshow and the news feature.)

Now, the planning is over, and the actual construction will begin!
