Kāneʻohe Elementary School May Day 2024 Program

Aloha KES Ohana,

As it has been raining all day and the field now is completely saturated, we will be holding our May Day festivities in our cafeteria.

  • There will be two nearly identical showings to accommodate the limited space within the cafeteria. 
    • If your oldest or only child at Kāneʻohe Elementary is in grades K, 1, 2 or 3, please attend the first show at 8:30 AM. Doors open for seating at 8 AM
    • To ensure as many people as possible are able to see the show, those in the first show will be asked to exit after it concludes.
    • If your oldest or only child at Kāneʻohe Elementary is in grades 4, 5 or  6, please attend the second show at 9:45 AM. Doors open for seating 5 minutes after the conclusion of the first show.
  • If you are pulling your child out early, please wait until after their grade level performs for the second show which concludes entirely  at 11:30 AM.


Seating will be similar to that of Winter Songfest but turned so that it will be along the mauka side of the cafeteria: 

  • The front 1/3 will be open to those wanting to sit on the ground;
  • The next 1/3 will be filled with rows of chairs; and
  • The back 1/3 will be standing only.


  • No parking will be allowed during student drop-off from 7:30 - 7:50 AM
  • There will be very limited parking on the basketball courts on a first-come-first-serve basis (other than a few reserved spaces)
  • Because the field is entirely saturated, parking there will be at your own risk. Unless you have a 4-wheel drive, we would not advise parking on the field.
  • If parking in the neighborhood, please drive with aloha. Please do not block our neighbors' drive-ways and abide by all traffic safety laws.

Finally, we are looking forward to a great show. Our students have practiced extra hard and will be giving their all. Our staff have gone the extra mile, adjusting for this sudden change to ensure our students' shine regardless of the location. We look forward to seeing you there. But if you are unable to make it, please remember a video recording of the show will be posted on our website. Excited for tomorrow.


Naʻu me ka haʻahaʻa

Aloha is a mist, there is no mountaintop that it does not settle upon.
