Here's a thought for all the classmates still visiting this website. Let's play a game and see how many will reply. Think of the letter F for Fourth of July and enter one word which would positively reflect our feelings of the Fourth of July.

thank you Chieko for alerting us outside of hometown Honolulu to the McKinley name change attempts. Like Robert Craig, below, I agree the school's name should be retained. I read "pro" sentiments and political/cultural perspectives. However, revisionist history is wrong. Manifest Destiny and imperialism should be viewed in terms of its broader context to global events at the time. How we interpret history is key. McKinley High School's name should be retained.

It's amazing how there are Happy Something for every day of the year! Most are for different foods but today is worth mentioning. HAPPY EARTH DAY! Here in MD we always have big festivities such as anyone who wishes to support Cancer can have a cherry blossom tree planted around Centennial Lake which supports a mile around the lake walking path with beautiful birds and fish and other wildlife. The children have workshops such as creating musical instruments with recycled materials and make Japanese paper lanterns with battery operated candle in it and march around the lake at evening. There are also other fun activities all over our city such as Green Day fest where there are tons of free items such as recycle bins, lawn bags, energy lightbulbs, plant seedlings, shredding trucks, etc. which is very much missed due to COVID. But memories are there. We have azaleas and our neighbors have lavender, tulip, hibiscus, etc and cherry blossom trees are blooming up and down the streets. It's a beautiful sunny day today. Hope you are enjoying EARTH DAY. HAPPY EARTH DAY! Aloha, Mae

Hi Everyone! Today is April Fool's Day. Back in 1988, I heard a loud noise going down the stairs to the basement. My daughter came running into my bedroom calling me to come quickly as Tait fell down the stairs. At the bottom of the stairs lay Tait with the other children covering him. When I got down to the bottom to see how he was doing, all the children jumped up and shouted, "APRIL FOOLS"! I will never forget that and since then, they have never been able to fool me again.
I thought it might be fun if any of you had any April Fools experience that you would like to share, you could post them, too.
In any case, here's wishing you all a very enjoyable April Fools Day!
Mae

Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Those days were hard times where the draft was in effect. Harder yet were those who died during the war and who are still suffering from the health effects of that war. We salute all those who helped to protect the United States of America. If your name is in this McKinley High School list but do not show the flag signifying that you are a veteran, please reply so that we can honor your service. May we always remember you and your service to this country. Aloha nui loa!

Don't know if you got this message but it is getting late here in MD as we are 6 hours ahead of Hawaii time now so I thought I would send this out anyways.

Some legislatures are trying to change our high school's name from McKinley High School (name for 116 years from 1905 to present): to Honolulu High School (name called from 1895 to 1904) with HR148 and HCR 179 (2 House Bills). Please sign the petition found at:

https://sign.moveon.org/petitions/keep-the-name-of-president-william-mckinley-high-school

to NOT change our high school's name. So far we only have 670+ names to keep our high school's name to McKinley High School. They need your name on the petition ASAP. If you know of any friends who went to McKinley High School who want to keep the name of our school to McKinley High School, instead of Honolulu High School, please send this email to them. We need at least 1,000 signatures.



Thankyou very much,

Mae helping Chieko, hope you can help, too.

Hi David, Glad you joined this website. Did CA start school or are they doing virtual learning?
How is the weather now? I am concerned for my relatives who live in CA. I am enjoying getting in touch with fellow classmates and am amazed at all the wonderful things that everyone has done! We are in MD and not able to return to HI to visit with COVID around. Hope to keep in touch with you all! Stay safe and healthy. Aloha, Mae

Hi Randall, Glad to see you joined this website. Belated Happy Birthday! My oldest grand daughter was born on Jan 23, 2004. She got a new car for her birthday and passed her driver's license last week. She is having a blast despite the COVID. Hope your birthday was exciting and memorable! May you have many more happy birthdays.
Aloha,
Mae
