Annual Giving Goal Almost Reached!

A letter from the Advancement Team: Sean Magoun, Joan Shaw, Daryl Edwards, and Deatri Nakea

Aloha IS 'Ohana,

What a year! It's been a whirlwind of growth and productivity, and we are grateful for the support we have received from many generous friends of the school.

We are in the FINAL SPRINT to the end of the school year - and to the close of the 2014-15 Annual Giving Campaign. Just $7,000 is needed for us to meet our $70,000 goal! That's just $25 per family currently enrolled. If you haven't made your contribution, please join us. If you have given, please consider making another donation. Each and every gift makes a difference! Together, we can finish the year strong.

To give, visit or call us at (808) 246-0233. You may also stop by the office between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Donations to Island School are used for everything from classroom supplies to professional development - wherever the school needs it most. They are tax deductible, and are a great way for members of the community to show support for Island School's people, programs, and principles.

Mahalo nui loa for being a part of our 'ohana. We are deeply grateful, and wish you a good summer!
