Ninth Graders Serving the Community Posted November 23, 2016 by cesaki


The Freshmen Class of Kapaa High School was involved in numerous community service projects as part of a Freshmen orientation program this year.  The very successful program was designed to engage the new students in structured activities to assimilate them into the high school.  The program involves individual counselling to help new students set and achieve measurable academic goals, encourage the students to explore career options and develop a sense of community among the classmates so they can feel they are part of a strong support group.

According to Calvin Paleka, one of the program advisers, the program is so successful that schools from Oahu have shown interest in starting similar programs.

The Kapaa High Scool Foundation was able to help provide funding for 256  student tee shirts that Freshmen students wear on their service project activities.

    Is there an official website calendar for these community service projects? When and where are meetings held or how does a student get involved?
