ABOUT US

Our mission is to enhance and support the educational experience of our children at Kamilo'iki.

The Friends of Kamilo'iki Parent-Teacher Organization group was created in August 2012 to support Kamilo'iki Elementary School's vision, mission, and objectives through volunteerism.

In 2017, the group decided to officially organize as a non-profit corporation and apply for 501(c)(3) status, hence establishing the Friends of Kamilo'iki PTO in August 2018. We recently received our determination letter from the IRS, and are excited to start the 2019-2020 school year as a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity!

Please join us and have your voice heard!  We hope to see you at our next meeting!

Our Logo

KES's mascot is the Cougar Cubs.  We wanted our PTO logo to reflect our purpose of developing a closer connection between home and school, therefore showing a parent and child-sized cougar paw joining.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Silas Haglund for donating his time and talent to create our PTO logo seen here.  Thank you very much for your patience, and for using your artistic skills to interpret our many ideas into this original and fabulous logo!
