SAVE THE DATE: Homecoming 2013

Homecoming this fall will be held on Friday, September 27, 2013 at the King Kekaulike Stadium.

The theme is, “It is Time to Come Home”.  According to Student Activities Coordinator Janina Kennedy, “KKHS is a relatively young school and since the alumni are slowly returning to Maui to give back to their community, we felt it to be a particularly fitting theme for this year.”

Each class will design a float that represents various states that KKHS students might have gone off to for schooling and will conclude with a large float representing Hawai‘i, our “home”.

Following tradition, the court will be presented and the King Kekaulike band will play musical pieces that represent different states, and will conclude with the song, “Take Me Home, Country Road” by Braddah IZ Kamakawiwo‘ole.

Alumni are encouraged to get involved in this important event to support our school.  Here are a few ways:

1.  Attend the pre-game alumni kick-off party in the KKHS gym lobby from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Reminisce with a few of your favorite teachers.  Those who are invited include: Mrs. Matsushita, Mr. Pisciotto, Ms. Grimley, Mrs. Ayotte (Ms. Miyagawa), and Mr. Paa.  In addition catch up with a few new teachers and alums, Mrs. Lynn (Kajihara) Yamada – ’99, Mr. Dain Shimabuku – ’03, Ms. Ronnie Kihara – ’03, Mr. Ryan Arakawa – ’00.  The event is free.  Please RSVP at and check for the latest information on the event.

2.  Buy an alumni t-shirt!  Available for purchase at the alumni kick-off or at the homecoming game.

3.  Assist the ASKK Executive Council with the Hawai‘i float.  The goal is to include beach scenery and lu’au decorations.  Float construction will begin 2 weeks before homecoming.  Contact Janaina Kennedy if you are able to assist at or donate any items for the float at Janina_Kennedy/KEKAULIKE/

4.  Participate in the Homecoming Parade starting immediately following the Junior Varsity Game ends.  Meet down by the track at 6:00 p.m. to participate in the parade.
