Parker Lower School celebrated its 9th Annual May Day Ho’ike on May 2. Kindergarten through fifth grade students performed various chants, songs and hula reflecting this year’s theme, I ka wa ma mua, I ka wa ma hope, which is interpreted as “The wisdom of our elders is the torch which enlightens the path of the children.” The students began preparing for May Day in September under the instruction of visiting kumu Liana Aveiro and Pua Garmon.
