Sup a Long Thank You

On behalf of the directors and members of the Moanalua High School Music Department, I would like to extend a heart felt thank you to all that attended our Annual Sup-a-Long Family Night on Sunday! It was a terrific turn out and it was especially nice to see so many new faces!

I hope that you enjoyed the Marching Band exhibition and got a good idea of what the philosophy of your child’s music education is about as well as the benefits that go with it.

We also extend a our sincere apologies for the errors that occurred with some of your bento orders during the dinner portion. Unfortunately due to our oversight, a portion of the orders did not make it in to the parents in charge. I am truly sorry to the many families that were inconvenienced and we will do all we can to ensure that this does not happen again in our future events.

Thank you also to the many families that generously donated cases of water for our many events this year. Donations are truly appreciated and will be put to very good use this year!

To all a very fond Mahalo for taking great interest in your child’s education, but more importantly their future well being.

Let’s all continue to work together to make your child’s education at Moanalua High School the very best!

Looking forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming events.
