After opening up its new campus building in South Maui just last year, Kīhei Charter School is now looking to expand its athletics program.

For the last three years, the school has held a lūʻau to raise money for its sports teams.

This year, Kīhei Charter staff, families, and volunteers are determined to raise $50,000.

“We are involving all of our ʻohana in this endeavor,” school official Tom Blackburn-Rodriguez said in a press release.

“It takes a village for an event like this to be successful.”

The school hopes the proceeds will help improve its Kindgergarten through 12th grade athletics program.

Kīhei Charterʻs athletic director Dave Kannewurf said growing the program could better serve students.

Scholastic sports, as Kannewurf explained, help students “learn lessons they can take with them all their lives.”

The schoolʻs lūʻau fundraiser is slated for March.
