We’re the Friends of Koko Head Elementary School.

We support Koko Head’s teachers and staff by raising funds year round to provide Physical Education, Music and Hawaiian Studies as well as school supplies, fun activities and other areas critical to our children’s education.

Our budget for this year is below. We are seeking to raise approximately $56,000 to cover our commitments for the 2017-2018 school year, which works out to a little more than $175 per student. We have three big fundraisers to help us reach this goal:

Please see the Fundraisers page for more information on these and other fundraising activities that are going on and how you can help.


Item Amount
PE, Music and Hawaiiana Teachers $30,000
Enhanced Technology in Classrooms for Lower Elementary $5,000
IB Professional Development Program $10,000
Teacher Honorariums $3,000
4th Grade Big Island Trip Contributions $1,200
Lunch Loans $200
Classroom Fans $300

We meet once a month, usually on the first Monday of each month, from 6:00 – 8:00pm in the school cafeteria. Occasionally scheduling conflicts force us to move the meeting dates, so please be sure to check below for the latest schedule.

Our meetings are relatively informal and are used to provide updates and status on our ongoing fundraisers and events. They are also a time where we welcome any suggestions from the community, so please come with your ideas!

Upcoming Meetings:

  • Monday, August 14 (Moved due to start of school year)
  • Monday, September 11 (Moved due to Labor Day)
