Family & Community Member Opportunity: School Community Council
Are you looking for a way to be more involved in your child's school or the Kea'au community? One great way to do so is to join the Kea'au Middle School Community Council (SCC) for next school year. The SCC is a group of faculty/staff, community members, students and their family members that work together to review and offer feedback on important school matters. Meetings are no more than once a month after school so the time commitment is minimal but it offers a great opportunity to have your perspective and voice heard. If you would like to join as either a family representative or community representative, please contact Kristina McCracken (acting SCC secretary and Family Engagement contact) at Kristina.McCracken@k12.hi.us.
