Parents & Partnerships
Parents are provided many opportunities to participate in the academic success of their children.  Open House, Parent-Teacher-Student conferences, Math Night, Curriculum Night and several parent workshops during the school day are scheduled every year to allow parents the opportunity to know what programs are available and how they can support their children. Parents are our precious resource and the first teachers of our children.

For more information on our Parent Organizations, please click here for the Papa Makua and PTA page. We need your kokua in planning fun events for our 'ohana!

Pū‘ōhala could not possibly provide for all of the programs that it would like to see its students be involved with at every level. Luckily, however, national, state and community organizations provide the extras that the school's budget cannot afford. Learn more about our great Partnerships and Caring 'Ohana!

 Parent Volunteers
Throughout the school year, parents can be of great service in a variety of ways. They may serve as room parents, chaperones, tutors, lunch and playground supervisors, health room aides, library assistants, clerical helpers and serve on education boards. Volunteer help from parents is always needed and greatly appreciated. See also Papa Makua & PTA information and the Visitor/Volunteer on Campus Policy for more information. Please call the office at 233-5660 if you would like to volunteer!
