Kalanianaole Elementary & Middle School Hawaii


Located in the rural town of Papaʿikou on the island of Hawaii, Kalanianaʿole Elementary & Middle School represents a small community with an average income nearly $20,000 less than the state average income. With $45,000 of additional R.E.A.C.H. Initiative funding being provided to Kalanianaʿole Elementary & Middle School, students are fortunate to continue their involvement in existing programs, which have already proven to impact students in a positive way. Through these after-school programs and clubs, students have developed school pride, self-esteem and the desire to continue their educational journeys. By offering tutoring and creating clubs that target student interests, such as: science, art, hula, ʿukulele, running and basketball, students are actively engaged in their educational development. Through continued support and funding from the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative, students at Kalanianaʿole Elementary & Middle School may successfully enter the next phase of their lives.
