Alakai O Kauai Charter School

Aloha, Alaka`i O Kaua`i Families! 

Last Friday was a very special day for parents and learners who attended a fantastic show performed by high school dancers from Tahiti. The Tahitian dancers closed out the show by inviting many of our learners to dance with them.

Last week was also an opportunity for parents to visit classrooms to see what their children have been learning over the past few months. Learners in grades K-7 explained and discussed what they have been learning. Below is a description of the Learner-Led Conference model that we follow through iLEAD Schools.

Events like these make Alaka`i O Kaua`i a very special place to be. Have a wonderful week!
