Volunteers are
Making a
Difference at Hale
Kula Elementary
School
Volunteers from
HHBN 25th ID (POC
Captain Roderick
Taylor) as well as
school volunteers
showed up bright
and early on
Saturday morning to
beautify our campus.
Weston Solutions
and DPW volunteers
Weston Solutions, DPW,
and SYNERGY generously
donated the Aquapaving
for our outdoor garden as
well as tools,
wheelbarrows, and
compost kits. On Make a
Difference Day, volunteers
came to help put up a
trellis in the fifth grade
Hope Garden. They also
provided lots of assistance
and resources for the
fourth grade Hawaiian
Garden.
“Many Hands Make Light Work”
 We appreciate all the volunteers for working so hard to beautify our
 campus.

great!                  quality work!
Thank you, Weston Solutions, for
funding our projects!




  During Fall Intersession, through a grant from Weston Solutions and
  collaboration with DPW and SYNERGY, we were able to have our outdoor
  garden Aquapaved. On October 13, 2012, Weston Solution volunteers
  helped with our fourth and fifth grade gardens.
Fourth Grade Hawaiian Garden
Fourth grade teachers
                             The work was labor-intensive!
started to remove and save
the plants at 7:00 a.m.
Volunteers Worked Side-by-Side
with Our Teachers
Volunteers + Staff = Cooperation
The Hawaiian
Garden
The fourth grade teachers with
assistance from the volunteers
were able to separate the three
parts of the Hawaiian Garden
– Native Hawaiian plants,
Polynesian-introduced plants,
and plants introduced later by
immigrants or other visitors to
Hawaii. Students will be able
to research and learn more
about the importance of these
plants in the lives of the earlier
Hawaiian people and realize
the importance of
sustainability and caring for
our environment.
Fifth Grade Hope Garden




 Volunteers worked to build a trellis for the Hope Garden. It is hoped that
 this will alleviate some of the dust and provide some shade when the
 plants grow enough to cover the area.
Compost bins
Mr. Merriam and his son   Composting – another
put the bins together.    environmentally-friendly idea!
A big “MAHALO!”
to all our
volunteers from
HHBN 25th ID and
Weston Solutions!
Hale Kula Elementary
School is fortunate to
have such wonderful
partners. The students,
staff, and families
appreciate all of you for
giving your time and
energy to ensure a
positive and safe
environment for
teaching and learning!
