LAHAINA – The Lahaina Complex Tutor Project begins its 17th year the week of Sept. 18 through March 2018. The goal of the project is to enhance students’ language arts and mathematics skills for better educational success in high school and beyond.

Tutors provide students with the assistance necessary to strengthen subject comprehension and boost learning confidence, all within a welcoming, supportive and friendly atmosphere. Invitations to participate will be mailed to parents rather than being sent home by students.

Invitations to the free programs will be mailed to parents on Aug. 21, 2017.

Parents and students sign the contract form to participate and return the form to the Lahaina Intermediate School Office. The deadline is Aug. 31.

Students will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students will take home acceptance or wait list status letters on Sept. 5 or 6.

Parents, students and tutors attend orientation meetings as follows: Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary School on Wednesday, Sept. 13, at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria, and Lahaina Intermediate School on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.

Parents agree to have students attend classes regularly and attend the Parent Orientation Meeting in September and the End-of-the-Year Awards/Dinner Event.

Program offerings at three Lahaina school sites are:

Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary grades 3 and 5 language arts on Wednesdays from 1:20 to 2:50 p.m.;
