Preparing families for
'Back to School'
Kahauiki Village and our Family Shelter are abuzz with activity as the keiki to return to school next week. 

Last week we closed out the Summer Fun program with a carnival complete with games, food, prizes, and music. Many residents of Kahauiki Village volunteered their time hosting the different food stations, while IHS Children’s program interns ran the games.  

Quickly shifting gears, this week we are preparing for the new school year. On Monday, Hair by Tanya (at Hair Studio 44) provided free haircuts to schoolchildren. On Tuesday, donated school supplies were delivered to any keiki in need. This afternoon, we are hosting a resource fair for families to learn more about opportunities available to them at school or to support their schooling. 

Join us in wishing our keiki a terrific school year filled with fun and learning!

The McKinney-Vento Act (MVA) reinforces a child’s rights to enroll while their records are pending, receive comparable services to their peers, transportation to/from school, and more! Learn more on our blog.
