The St. Louis Football Team visited our campus during recess and lunch on Friday, March 6, 2020 to work out with our students and spoke to them about the importance of school, being respectful and being responsible. Mahalo to all coaches, faculty, and staff for making this 2nd annual visitation possible!
We were lucky to have been introduced to John Johnson through our Friends of Ali‘iolani (FOA) President Mr. and Mrs. Chong.
John was able to film our school from 400 feet with his drone and captured some amazing photos that allow us to see our school's physical space in a different light. He also was able to get all students and staff in a big "A" with Diamond Head and the Honolulu cityscape in the background.
We are so thankful to John for donating his time and energy and making our school a true work of art for all to see. If you would like to see more of John's work please visit his website at
