Aloha e Kamehameha. Kumus Kawika and Hoʻomano would like to mahalo everyone who took time to visit us in SPC, or to commission us, to work on curriculum-based, special event and personal projects this 2018-19 school year. SPC is closed during Finals Week so that our students can clean up the facility and prepare for next year. No new or makeup work will be allowed during this time. Aloha to our graduating seniors and we hope everyone, from our haumāna to our poʻokula and everyone in between, has an exciting, productive and recuperative Summer.
