Say “Aloha” to the Hawaii DEN!

Please welcome our recent additions to the Discovery Education ohana (family)!   

Exciting things are brewing on the islands, including a growing number of DEN STARs!  Over the coming weeks, we’ll be introducing you to your fellow STARs from Hawaii and hear more about how they’re using Discovery Education resources, island-style.

In the Hawaiian language, “Aloha” means many things, including hello and love.  So, how about it, DEN family – let’s show our Hawaii DEN ohana some DEN love by saying hello!

Please post a comment welcoming these DEN members!
