Mahalo nui loa na ho'olaule'a me la kaua-
Thank you for celebrating with us!

On February 15, hundreds of Hawaiian leis adorned students dancing the night away as Trinity’s Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) hosted the 4th annual Hawaiian dance for Elim Christian School. More than 100 Elim and Trinity students enjoyed this lively event.

“Every opportunity I get to spend time with Elim students is a blessing,” said Megan Crawley ’09 of Alsip, Illinois. “They have so much love to share, and they constantly remind me what it means to have fun and enjoy each other’s company.”

Students were dressed in festive Hawaiian apparel and danced and limbo-ed into the evening. Music was provided by a live, five-piece band and a DJ playing selections from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and even some current favorites.

“Events like this help me to focus on how students with special needs are indeed special and have gifts to offer this world that we may not be blessed to have in our own life,” said Heidi Gropp ’09 of Darien, Connecticut.
CEC members and Trinity students helped coordinate and plan this successful event. The Elim students had a great time and are already anticipating next year’s dance.

Crawley said, “It was great to hear one student say that they were going to miss this dance most of all when they graduate from Elim this year.”
