Papa Kū Māna

Aloha!

I maika‘i ke kalo i ka ‘ōhā.
"The goodness of the taro is judged by the young plant it produces."

The keiki who are fortunate enough to attend Hālau Kū Māna and graduate become part of something much greater than themselves. We are proud of the small part we play in creating agents of change for Hawai'iʻs future, and custodians of mai nā kūpuna mai.

We canʻt do this alone. Charter schools start the year with a fraction of the per-student funding that a traditional DOE institution does. There are a number of ways we compensate for this shortfall, but the single most important source of funding is you.

Click here to read Po'o Kumuʻs letter on this topic. More than ever we need the help of parents, neighbors, partners, and those who believe in this model.
