Kalamalama visited a Work Place Readiness class at Castle High School in which the students were engaged in a project with Breakthroughs for Youth at Risk, a worldwide non-profit organization that helps teens to face their obstacles, change their attitudes, and make good decisions.

Students are invited to take part in Halloween festivities a few days early at HPU’s Fifth Annual Halloween Hoop-La on October 26, from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Neal Blaisdell Arena.

The event will feature decorative booths for keiki to do their trick-or-treating until 6 p.m., and other activities for youngsters to enjoy, including games and inflatable bouncers. There will also be costume contests, food, giveaways, music, a faculty and staff scrimmage, and performances by the national champion HPU cheerleaders and dance team, as well as the Sea Warrior Band.

The highlight of Halloween Hoop-La is the introduction of the 2006-07 men’s and women’s basketball teams, who will take part in an intra-squad scrimmage and free throw contests. Also, come visit with HPU’s athletic director Jill Ward, new head men’s basketball coach, Darren Vorderbruegge, and new head women’s basketball coach, Liz O’Brien, as well as their coaching staffs.
