Please remember to ask your student to bring home their acceptable uniforms for our ATP uniform exchange.  They will be asked to leave them at the Dorms, but we could use them for our West Hawaii families.  Senior families are most important for the dress whites.  Hopefully, the ATP will be able to schedule a Uniform Exchange day prior to the Mills Trunk show usually held in early July.  Keep an eye on this site and in your email for details.


Summer Vacation!
Have a wonderful time with your haumana while they're home for the summer. 

Our next update should be toward the end of June when the uniform exchange date is confirmed. In the mean time, enjoy the pix from this year's events.
