The KCS PTSA is a local unit of the Hawaii PTSA, and is an independent, self-governing non-profit entity that is dedicated to bringing together families and educators to achieve each child’s potential. While the PTSA can and does engage with places of primary learning for students – schools, families, churches, etc. – it is not an institutional support organization. It is important to remember that our focus is on supporting our community’s children.

The KCS PTSA is applying to be come a local unit member of the Hawaii PTSA so maybe it’s good to explain what the HI PTSA is all about.

The Hawaii Congress of Parents, Teachers, and Students, also known as the Hawaii State PTSA, is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of volunteers dedicated to improving the lives of Hawaii’s keiki. Chartered in 1926, the Hawaii State PTSA is Hawaii’s oldest and largest child advocacy organization. We are a state charter of the National PTA, made up of local units throughout the State of Hawaii.

Our goal is to improve the lives of children in Hawaii. The Hawaii State PTSA prides itself on being a powerful voice for children, a relevant resource for parents, and a strong advocate for public education. Membership in the Hawaii State PTSA is open to anyone who is concerned with the education, health, and welfare of children and youth, and supports the mission of PTA.
