LAHAINA — We are very excited about the Lahaina Complex After School Tutoring Project’s programs this year.

Some 102 adults and approximately 60 Lahainaluna High School students will be volunteer tutors in grades 3-8 in the Lahaina public schools. Twenty-three tutors are

from the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua.

We have spent many months revising our lesson plans to make them more effective in improving the students’ skills in mathematics, reading and test taking.

Eligible students have received invitations to enroll in the programs, and we are busy compiling our lists of participants.

All of our tutors will be planting many seeds and hoping and working for a bountiful harvest of progress and success.

Turning to important coming events, on Thursday, Sept. 8, an All Project Volunteers Meeting will be held in the Lahaina Intermediate School cafeteria from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Parent-Student-Tutor Orientation is slated in the Lahaina Intermediate cafeteria on Monday, Sept. 12, at 6 p.m.; Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. in the King Kamehameha III School cafeteria; and Thursday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m. in the Princess Nahienaena School cafeteria. Refreshments will be served at the orientations.
