The Ka`elepulu PTSA `Ohana Board is made up of a volunteer group of parents providing fundraising, community building, and the necessary tools to strengthen the educational environment for our students.


Without the help of parents, teachers, grandparents, friends, neighbors, and other interested members of our community, our Board could not provide the unique experiences and opportunities that complement Ka`elepulu's quality education and experience.
