    ‘Ele‘ele School students Zachkary Villanueva, Vice Principal James Muraoka, Tailana Tanigawa and Raygen Rivera show off some of the nearly 200 cards written and illustrated by the school’s students that were picked up for delivery by Michiko and Raymond Hirao, on the school campus last week.

Diane Nitta, working on behalf of the Rev. Kohtoku Hirao and the Waimea Shingon Mission, estimated that more than 400 cards were written, and in many instances illustrated, by ‘Ele‘ele School students, and will be delivered to Aichi Prefecture, Japan this month.
