School Safety: Please drive with aloha in and around Pauoa and use the crosswalk to get to the other side. We have had several calls from our neighbors regarding speeding and unsafe driving. On 11/27/18, we had an incident where a pedestrian was hit by a car. Luckily, no one was injured. Again, please drive with aloha and always use the crosswalk to get to the other side. Together, let’s make Pauoa Valley a safe place to be.

Make Your Own ‘Drive In Movie’ Car Contest!
The front row on the Great Lawn will be reserved for participants in this contest. Participants must register their car at 5:30pm on Movie Night.
Parade of contestants will begin at 5:45pm and participants may watch the movie in their car.

Instructions: With your family members, construct a car using primarily recycled material (i.e.: cardboard boxes) to hold one, two or your entire family. This is a family activity so get everyone involved in your planning, constructing and designing of your “drive in movie car”.
• How will you design your doors? Will they open?
• How will you get into your car?
• Will there be a roof to protect you?
• Will you attach wheels or draw them?
• Steering wheel?
• Dashboard?
• Seats?
• Lights?
Be creative and have fun with it. This is what family time is all about…
