We take you to one elementary school -- learning the importance of a Hawaii tradition. NATS: 819-27 KIDS SINGING Sounds good kids! Lincoln Elementary celebrated May Day today -- with a full May Day court -- following tradition -- with prince and princesses representing each island -- followed by the King and Queen. Students from Pre-School to grades 5 sang and performed for a big crowd outside their Papakolea school. Principal Shannon Goo says -- yet again -- his kids are making him proud: 110-18 "THE STUDENTS REALLY STEP UP AND PERFORM. IT SEEMS LIKE A NATURAL TALENT FOR THEM AND THE TEACHERS JUST SUSTAIN THIS CULTURE OF QUALITY." Principal Goo says it's also very important for the entire community. He says everybody donates the flowers, fauna, and their time -- including families -- coming in to sew costumes and lei.
