Aloha! As we finish our first quarter of the school year, there is much that we can be proud of as a community. First and foremost, we were able to open the school year in-person even amidst the challenges of COVID-19. I am grateful to each and every person that partnered with our amazing educators to help bring back students to school safely. Despite the unknowns, everyone rose to the challenge and kept the students first, kept the schools safe, and embraced one another through care and compassion. Because we are a community.
Serendipitously, the Castle-Kahuku Complex Area has been on a journey to redefine and realign our efforts to better serve our students, schools, and communities. The process began before COVID-19, but rings true today. Our vision is clear. We believe that all learners are empowered to improve our community through a sense of belonging and the perseverance to achieve. Our mission, rather our kuleana, is to cultivate a community rooted in passion, empowerment, and perseverance. We strive to emulate hoʻomana (empowerment), hoʻomau (perseverance), and hana like (togetherness) in our attitudes and in our actions.
