Students enjoying the PTA sponsored Fun Run

Who We Are

The Makawao School PTA was formed to help encourage student achievement and learning enrichment. We believe that as parents, students, and teachers come together, we can create an environment where children will be successful students.

What We Do

Our PTA work each year to organize, fund, and promote events and programs such as:

  • School events: Boo Hoo Woo Hoo, ʻOhana Nights, Santa’s Workshop, Fun Run, Ice Cream Social, Teacher Appreciation.

  • ​Extracurricular activities: Arts In The Classroom, Ceramics, Music, Ukulele.

  • Student programs: School Garden Program, classroom supplies, field trip bus transportation.

Makawao School does all of this and so much more as they strive to meet the needs of our school community. Thanks again for helping to make this all possible!
