The event thrown by the 8th graders this semester is called, "Kalama's Pu'uwai." The students brainstormed the topic of "Hard Times" that face our Upcountry community. Heart health was a topic that came up frequently. They teamed up with the American Heart Association to come up with an event that they hope will bring heart health awareness, fun and a tradition to our campus.
The event is on Thursday 3/16 after 8th grade lunch (12:39p-2:05p)

The team is in need of raising $25,000 within the next 2 months to send all 14 students and their coaches. Please help us afford this trip so we may have the opportunity to represent Maui and the state of Hawaii and most of all make you proud!!! For the third year in a row, our robotics team is headed to the VEX IQ World Championship. We have only 3 returning members and 11 new students who were inspired by the teams before to step up and take on this challenge!
We need your help to bring this inspiring, learning opportunity to our students. They are our future citizens that are learning skills and work habits that will benefit our world! If you are unable to make a donation at this time, please share this information with your friends and family.
