“Community Day in Our Schools - A Day of Service”

Senator Bennette E. Misalucha (District 16 - Pearl City, Momilani, Pearlridge ‘Aiea, Royal Summit, ‘Aiea Heights, Newtown, Waimalu, Hālawa and Pearl Harbor) recently announced the creation of a district-wide service initiative called Community Day in Our Schools - A Day of Service, a one-day event to beautify public school campuses, stretching across 4.9 miles from ‘Aiea to Pearl City on Saturday, July 31, 2021 between 8:00 a.m. to noon.

“Prior to the start of the new 2021 - 2022 school year on August 3, various community groups will pitch in to paint, clear overgrown landscaping, dispose debris at 10 campuses in our district,” said Senator Misalucha. “I am excited to start this initiative designed to establish a culture of service because when people give of themselves through community service, they feel connected working side by side with their neighbors. It is our hope that Community Day in Our Schools will fill a sense of pride and joy among community members and especially our keiki who are looking forward to returning in the fall.”

The 9 participating schools that will welcome one of the community, civic, faith-based or non-profit groups to its campuses are:
