The following information is provided by the Department of Education:
On Friday, February 10, 2012, the students of Ewa Elementary School will honor Abraham Lincoln at our 68th Annual Lincoln Day Program, which is held on our campus in front of the Lincoln Statue beginning at 8:20 a.m.
Students from Preschool to Grade 6 will perform tributes to honor Abraham Lincoln. The Royal Hawaiian Band will also be participating in this celebration to Lincoln. In addition, the traditional lei draping of the Lincoln statue will be a major part of the program.
Through the generosity of Katherine McIntosh Burke, a great admirer of Lincoln as well as a Teacher and Principal of Ewa School from 1919 to 1927, our “Lincoln, the Frontiersman” statue was dedicated on February 12, 1944. Funds for our statue were provided through Ms. Burke’s estate. Dr. Avard Fairbanks, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor was commissioned to build our beautiful bronze statue.
Please join us as our students, teachers and community pay tribute to Abraham Lincoln. Parking arrangements can be made by notifying our office of your attendance. Please call our office at 681-8202 with your response.
