Family / Student / School Compact
We, the school community of Kapalama, are committed to nurturing all children to have a positive self-concept and a caring, respectful attitude towards themselves and others; to know about the world around them; to be confident to think critically, initiate ideas and express their thought; to balance academic achievement with sound common groups; to practice social skills that contribute to the feeling of ohana; to welcome challenges and to take risks; to exhibit an avid curiosity that leads to life-long learning; and to put forth the hard work required to achieve their personal potential and become responsible citizens of our community.
