Last week while we braced for the impacts of Hurricane Lane, Lahaina was unprepared for the massive brushfire. This event has had a devastating effect, but in tragedy, we are rediscovering the strength and true beauty of our community.
Lahainaluna High School would like to show its gratitude to those who have fought so hard to preserve everything that we all hold dear. We wish to honor those who fought to save West Maui- battling the fire, ensuring safe and orderly evacuations, and restoring water and power as quickly as possible.
We invite all those who have given so much of themselves, striving to preserve our way of life, to come and be recognized at the Lahainaluna vs Kamehameha Schools football game at Sue D. Cooley stadium on Saturday September 8th. Game admission is free to those who arrive before 6pm in their work uniform. Please sign in at the main entrance next to the box office.
As part of the recognition for your hard work there will be a photo session, lei ceremony, and complimentary tickets for you and your immediate family from the PTSA to the Lahainaluna Festival I KA NANI O LELE on Saturday September 15th.
The community is invited to bring leis to the game for our heroes. If you cannot make it to the game, you may drop leis off at the Lahainaluna main office no later than 3:45 pm on Friday, September 7.

A bit of history when September 5th arrives:
On the 5th of September in 1831; 25 scholars (chiefly from Maui & Hawaii) and 1 instructor (Principal Rev Lorrin Andrews of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. ) began higher education on barren land above Lahaina provided by the Chieftess Kalākua Kaheiheimālie, later known as Hoapili Wahine. Five to six weeks later 42 scholars (from Oahu and Kauai delayed due to complications traveling) joined the above scholars making the total enrollment 67 scholars.
All the scholars were male ranging in age from 15 to 35 years old (David Malo 38 was the exception). Most were married, some with children. All of the scholars were accompanied by their wives, children and some with servants living on their own (boarding began in 1836). Each of the scholars had been recommended by their community (chiefs & missionaries) as having an elementary education and several had been teachers in their communities.
This first year the instruction was confined to reading and recitations from material read as well as oral instruction and manual labor. The year ended in May 1832 and no examinations were given. These men became the 1st graduating class in 1835.
-Leslie Hiraga (Lahainaluna High School PCNC and part of the school's archive committee) Mahalo to Leslie for giving us this insight of history. The school is 187 years old and 13 years away from the 200th anniversary.
