PTSO Mission Statement
To enhance our children’s education with proactive support for our teachers and staff with a positive networking of parents
HO`ALA PTSO-Parent, Teacher, Student Organization
Ho`ala parents know they are the most powerful influence in their children’s lives! They know that their children will learn to become cooperative, effective, responsible individuals when the adults in their lives earnestly commit themselves to being cooperative, effective, responsible individuals.
The Ho`ala School PTSO is a fun and very welcoming community working together to support and strenghten our unique, caring and dynamic school. The PTSO is dedicated to assisting the school in fund-raising, planning fun activities, and helping the school coordinate numerous programs. There is no sign-up for membership needed as enrollment at Ho`ala automatically includes parents and students into the PTSO `Ohana. There is a modest fee collected at the beginning of each year to assist with start up funding.
As a small learning community, Ho`ala cannot survive without full participation of parents, students and extended family volunteers. We recognize that each family has its own priorities, time constraints and special circumstances. It is our hope that we provide numerous options that will compliment and enhance parents ability to volunteer time willingly and effectively.
Parents are asked to select from a variety of opportunities that are available throughout the school year. Such as field trips, Room Parents, Cookie Bake, Parade Committee, School Newsletter, Art teacher assistant, monthly Family Fun Nights, the annual fundraiser, etc.
Ho`ala School values our partnership with parents to support students, school and community.
