Classic Video

Menehune Classic Thank You!!!

What a night! The 10th Annual “Menehune” Classic was a tremendous success. Amazing music, spectacular pageantry, and great Hawaii weather made it a perfect evening. Special thanks to Wayne Sakamoto and Casey Jim for chairing the event together. You guys did a fantastic job as usual. Thank you also to the Music Boosters Assn. and the countless amount of parents, students, and friends that volunteered their time to organize and work so hard to help make this event possible. We here at the music department, are so blessed to have such dedicated, caring, and selfless people that do so much for the sake of the students of the music program. The relationship and camaraderie is truly one of a kind. I feel so blessed to be able to associate myself with such greatness. You are all simply the best there is!!!

I hope that you all had a good rest today! As the season of the Tribal Warriors moves into it’s final few weeks, I hope that you will be able to join us at our future performances so that you can see how much your commitment has serviced not only us at Moanalua, but all the hard working music students of our state.

It was especially great to see so many past students and parents celebrating together as FAMILY. It was definitely a tear jerking moment.

Thank you again to all for making our decade of the Menehune Classic a great event for all. I’m sure that the next decade awaits us with so much more to look forward to!

Mahalo Nui Loa!!!
