Commonly Used Hawaiian Words- ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi

Piko Ceremony

We start the day with a Piko Ceremony, where each class meets in our center courtyard at 8:00am to start the school day all together.  We begin the morning with a prayer; Pledge of Allegiance; sing Hawaiʻi Ponoʻī; Pledge to Ke Akua; go over any announcements, including birthdays and special recognitions; and then often sing ʻOli Kawaiahaʻo or other songs.
