Parent Hui Invitation to All Parent Meeting

Aloha Parents,

You are invited to an All Parent Meeting hosted by the Parent Hui on Wednesday, May 29th in Niu Hall to meet and discuss your experience at our beloved school.  There are TWO opportunities: 8:30AM Wednesday Morning OR 6PM Wednesday Evening

This meeting is intended as a platform for parents to share information with the HWS Parent Hui.  Following the meetings, the Hui will summarize all information gathered and share it with the school's Administration, Board of Directors, and Faculty.

As chairperson of the Parent Hui and a parent at the school for 10 years, my intention is to build a more cohesive community partnership for our school to operate within.  This means meeting one another with respect, and aloha.  We are certain we can make this meeting work as an effective tool, but we need your help.

You should have received an email with a link to our annual "School Climate Survey".  This anonymous survey began 3 years ago and is administrated by, High school faculty member, Layla Schuster for our Pillars of Peace grant.  This year the Hui is partnering with Layla to use the data collection to inform the meeting as well as gauge the parent body's thinking about their experience at HWS.

Near the end of the survey, please check off areas of concern or add a topic not listed.  The areas of concern that receive the most attention will be the agenda for the meeting.  Although we may not be able to address every concern with regard to time, it will be included in the data summary sent to the Board and Administration.

If you are unable to make it to one of the meetings, PLEASE FILL OUT THE SURVEY anyway!  Your voice will be heard in the form of data.  The survey is short and can help you to clarify your joys and concerns as you read through the questions.

Mahalo for your effort toward building a more cohesive community at HWS.  We look forward to hearing from you.
