Welcome to the Hawaii State PTSA's Spotlight Page!
Each month the Hawaii State PTSA seeks to recognize the amazing things our local PTAs and PTSAs are
doing for Hawaii’s keiki. Be sure to share your success stories by completing the PTA Spotlight Form.
We greatly appreciate you sharing your success with other Hawaii local units.
March’s PTA Spotlight is:
Lahainaluna High School PTSA
The Lahainaluna High School PTSA proudly hosts a very successful Project Graduation each year, with an average attendance rate of 80% graduates participating. Project Grad is a safe, drug-free, alcohol-free overnight event, celebrating this important milestone in a student’s life. This nation-wide movement was started to ensure the safety of graduates on a traditionally high-risk day.
To ensure their remarkable attendance rates, the Lahainaluna PTSA works hard to keep the cost per student affordable to all. To do this, they subsidize the cost of attendance per student by 50-85%, depending on how early the students sign up, as well as fully covering the cost of students in need. (Students signed up by 11/30 pay only $30!) While some funding comes through participation fees and a local county grant, the primary fundraiser if an annual community golf tournament, which raises on average $20,000.
Congratulations Lahainaluna PTSA on hosting an ongoing successful event that engages families and community, while providing a safe environment to recognize your students.
