We Couldn’t Have Done It Without You! First Baptist Church of Pearl City

From: Mr. Eric White, Student Activities Coordinator, Highlands Intermediate School

Aloha All!

I hope you're having an awesome Summer so far?!?  I just wanted to share this video I just made for our awesome friends across the street, the First Baptist Church of Pearl City who help us set up the last day of school activities every year. We were all sidelined for last year's events but they heeded the call once again and did an amazing job with our 8th Grade Farewell Activities on the last days of school!!!  Please check out this video to see what I mean…

We Couldn't Have Done It Without You! First Baptist Church of Pearl City


Student Activities involves so many constituents: students, teachers, staff, administration, parents. There is one group that doesn't get as much attention but still they remain so important to everything we try to accomplish each and every year – make Highlands Intermediate the best school ever through amazing activities!

Here is a video of our awesome Pearl City community assisting in our annual A Hui Hou Activities. Traditionally, in the past, the First Baptist Church of Pearl City helps to set up the events for the last day of school: Farewell Assembly, Highlands Ho'olaule'a, 8th Grade Walk and then the Farewell Dance all at the Pearl City Gym. This year, because of COVID restrictions we had to pare it down and host the 8th Grade Walk and 8th Grade Farewell at the PE Courtyard. It turned out amazingly and those students, the Class of 2025 got sent out of Highlands in style! It was a memorable day indeed for everyone that participated and all we have to say is that Highlands loves our neighbors across the street, the First Baptist Church of Pearl City!!!
