Dear Kaʻelepulu ʻOhana ~ We are excited to start organizing a Career Day for grades Kindergarten to 2nd grade, and 3rd to 6th grade. Please consider signing up and sharing your personal career journey and unique perspectives on professional life. It can make an incredible difference in our studentsʻ lives.

Why do we have Career Day?

As adults, we forget how hard it can be for young people to think about their future lives in the professional world. At their age, they likely do not know who to turn to for answers. Career Day gives our students the opportunity to hear your personal career journeys as business leaders and professionals, and hopefully pique their interest in a career. Your unique experiences and perspectives that you provide have the power to inspire and influence our students as they consider their future. Please contact Nicolle Grimes nicolle.grimes@k12.hi.us for more information.

Check out the panels on our MALA Facility!

As a result of Ms. Mindy Jaffeʻs tireless efforts, our Malama ʻAina through Learning and Action (MALA) facility has come to fruition. With Ms. Mindy in the lead, she has accomplished creating this hands-on learning facility not only to expand the food recycling and resource recovery program here in our community, but to bring that information, benefits and awareness to a nation-wide audience. View their presentation to see how MALAʻs educational facility makes a huge, positive impact on our one and only planet.
