President's Message 05 March 2013

On May 21st 2012 we were scheduled to have our monthly PTSA meeting to wind up the school year and plan for next year, that meeting never happened because on that day at 2:30 in the morning my 23 year old son Bruce was in a fatal car crash.  A few weeks later my board asked me if I still wanted to serve my upcoming term as PTSA president which I did because in my mind I wanted for my life to be as... normal as possible.

At the end of this school year we will need to find a new treasurer, vice president and president. What does the job entail and how much of a time commitment is it?
We meet once a month usually for an hour on the third Monday of the month at 6:30 pm in the SAC Four times a year we do an ice cream give away to students who are on the honor roll and achieve perfect attendance.room and thoughout the year we sponsor the Back-to-School BBQ which is our biggest annual event.
As an organization we provide help to students, teachers, administration, coaches and parents by helping with funding for our sports teams that travel to other islands along with ROTC when they travel. We also support our students who are involved in science projects and teachers often approach us to help with projects and extra-curricular activities that the DOE doesn't cover.  

We do no fundraising because all our funding comes from-scrip which mostly comes from when supporters shop at Safeway. We are blessed to be able to work with a very committed group of administrators and teachers and as a alumni I am proud to say that good things are happening here at Kapaa high school.

The end of the school year is approaching rapidly and part of my duty is to try and find new board members to help out next school year. I can tell you that one of the best ways to help insure your your children’s success is to take an active role in your child’s school. So please step up and insure that the PTSA can continue to do good things for our kids, it’s a small time commitment with great rewards.

If you would be willing to help out next year please call me at 6FIVE2-758ZERO or email me at robertperdue@hotmail.com.

Mahalo, Robert
