January 2018 - The Magno Family

Aloha from the Magno family. We are so blessed to be chosen as PDD’s family of the month for January 2018. We are a fun- loving, adventure seeking family whose goal is to experience it all. Mark works as a technician for Spectrum Cable and Angela works as a Registered Dental Hygienist for Pearl Family Dental Care. Alissa (12) attends Kamehameha Middle School and Alivia (7) attends Pearl City Highlands Elementary School. Cameron (10) is a 5th grader at Kamehameha Elementary School and is currently a part of the HITMEN Gymnastics Team.

Alissa began dancing hula at PDD at the tender age of 5. After several years, jazz was added to her schedule followed by ballet. Throughout her years at PDD, she along with her dance sisters, competed and received awards in Spotlight and Jump.  She also just recently had the opportunity to dance at Disneyland for their Dance the Magic Showcase.

Alivia, on the other hand, has been in gymnastics since the age of 4. After years of watching her big sister, she shared an interest in taking dance as well. We started her off in jazz and shortly after she wanted to take ballet also. She now is in a competitive gymnastics team and dances jazz and ballet several times a week. 

We would like to express our gratitude to Jeremy, Wendy, the teachers and staff of PDD. My daughters are very blessed to be a part of such a great studio and they are very fortunate to have such wonderful mentors and teachers to help shape them into being the best they can be. 

For those of you that are new to PDD, Welcome! EMBRACE PDD. It is a great thing to be a part of and the families of PDD will become not just your friends but your extended ohana. VOLUNTEER! The feeling that you will get after seeing up close all the hard work that the kids put into their performances is irreplaceable. Be involved and take advantage of all the opportunities that may come. The experiences and memories that you’ll create with your child(ren) will be unforgettable.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
