Mahalo to the Rotary Club of Kāneʻohe for their Gift of Books!

What a wonderful present! Our school library received 23 hardcover books from the generous members of the Rotary Club of Kāneʻohe. Our keiki will enjoy the various picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and books written in Hawaiian! Independent reading is the key to success in school as well as a great way to spend the day.
