Cas­tle Sum­mit Coming March 9

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

An ed­u­ca­tion sum­mit, planned for 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 9 in the Cas­tle High School cafe­te­ria, aims to strengthen area schools through “The Power of Part­ner­ships.”

The group, which has been meet­ing and evolv­ing in re­cent years, seeks peo­ple with good ideas to work with the Kahuku- toKa­neohe pub­lic schools to cre­ate “wel­com­ing cam­puses” that en­cour­age part- ner­ing with stu­dents’ fam­i­lies. It’s of­fi­cially called the Cas­tle Com­plex Fam­i­lyS­chool Part­ner­ship Ini­tia­tive.

The March 9 sum­mit sig­nals the launch of an ef­fort to im­prove this work­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween home and fam­ily. Morn­ing re­fresh­ments will be served. To sign up, call 235-7747 or send an email to and in­di­cate if child­care is needed.

“The tar­get au­di­ence are the school com­mu­nity coun­cils, PTO boards and other par­ent/com­mu­nity lead­ers,” said Su­san Young of the Wind­ward District of­fice. “In other words, peo­ple who make things hap­pen at the schools. How­ever, all par­ents, stu­dents, fac­ulty, staff, ad­min­is­tra­tors and com­mu­nity mem­bers are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate.”

The sum­mit is spon­sored by Cas­tle Com­plex Com­mu­nity Coun­cil (C4) and the Cas­tle/Kahuku Com­plex Area and the DOE’s Wind­ward School District.
