“Our participation in the 5th Fridays events on Lānaʻi has allowed our students the opportunity to fundraise toward their upcoming Oahu field trip. Traveling off island means that each student must raise a significant amount of money in order to pay for their travel fees and accommodations.

The ease of fundraising at this event, and also sharing our story of the upcoming learning adventure, has given the community the opportunity to support our students and their families. It is also a great way to share how learning opportunities like these are imperative for our island keiki.

Due to our isolation, many students benefit from the opportunity to travel and make clear connections to the content they are learning in school. Without fundraising this would not be possible. We appreciate the chance to do this for our students.”
