Kaimuki Christmas Parade is Today!

Today is the day of the parade and here are some friend­ly reminders from Melis­sa T. (PTA Spe­cial Activ­i­ties):

  • Don’t for­get to be at Saint Louis School at about 4:45 pm.  The Waialae Gate clos­es at 5:50 pm.   All vehi­cles that arrive after 5:30 pm must exit via the upper cam­pus at Kam­i­na­ka Dr.  The lat­er you arrive, the more traf­fic there will be.
  • Wear your Liholi­ho shirt or a blue shirt.
  • Check-in with Melis­sa when you arrive.  Pre-ordered food and pom­poms will be passed out at that time.  I will have some extra pom­poms avail­able to pur­chase.
  • Rain or shine, the parade will still go on!  If it’s rain­ing, don’t for­get your umbrel­las!
  • Portable restroom facil­i­ties will be pro­vid­ed.  The ones in the Saint Louis gym will not be avail­able.
  • Some par­tic­i­pant park­ing is avail­able in the park­ing struc­ture, not around the oval grass area.  It is prefer­able to be dropped off.
  • The Kaimu­ki Busi­ness & Pro­fes­sion­al Asso­ci­a­tion (KBPA) is respon­si­ble for hold­ing this parade each year.  The main thing they would like to stress this year is for each group to stay togeth­er.  If you have pre­vi­ous­ly walked in the parade, you may have noticed how our group is usu­al­ly spread out about a block’s length :)  I am kind­ly ask­ing for every­one to try to walk at the same pace as the peo­ple around you.  I know if’s hard, espe­cial­ly with lit­tle ones, but just do the best that you can.  There will be parade  mar­shals this year to help keep every­one togeth­er as well, so, hope­ful­ly, that will help! Thank you in advance!!!
  • SAFETY FIRST — There will be vehi­cle traf­fic counter flow­ing the parade direc­tion, so have your child walk on the right side of the group.

Ronald McDonald Assembly

Ronald McDon­ald stopped by school today to frown upon bul­ly­ing. He passed on some phras­es to the chil­dren, which hope­ful­ly all of them picked up on:

Be a good friend.
Believe in your­self.
Be a bud­dy not a bul­ly.

Thank you to Arlene L. (PTA Newslet­ter) for the pic­tures and sum­ma­ry!
