Lei Day got its start in 1928 in Honolulu as a way of keeping alive the centuries-old practice of presenting people with floral wreaths to say “Aloha.” The custom is observed every May Day in all schools in Hawaii. Each class had worked hard to perform a dance. Some classes even wore traditional clothing. Beautiful day! So proud of the boys for learning the dances while also understanding the meaning behind each movement.

Silas’s 4th grade teacher, Mr. Talcott, he made this first year of school for Silas the best it could possibly be!
