Makawao Elementary School has been gifted with a beautiful mural by Maui artist Noble Richardson in collaboration with E.H.A. (Endemic Hawaii Artists), Kanu Ka ‘Ike and Maui Hui Malama. The mural reflects the Upcountry environment and the beautiful Lehua flower.

Our 4th graders created this amazing stop-motion animation with the guidance of Shelley Toon Lindberg and their awesome teachers. A big mahalo to Gail Ainsworth for sharing her wealth of knowledge about Makawao. Video also can be found on https://vimeo.com/420095965
