2015-16 AVID Application Form
Kahuku High School JROTC participated in the Adult Friends for Youth Anti Bullying Day at the PCC 5 February 2015 as part of this year's Service Learning Project.
Forty cadets were escorts and mentors to 2500 elementary students from 18 schools for the event. We also provided a color guard for the opening ceremony.

This was an excellent opportunity to support anti-bullying at the elementary school level and included messages from Mr Okabe, HSTA President, Mr Martin City Council Chairman, 'Da Braddahs" comedy team, Frank DeLima, the Tonga Sisters, and a student panel. Our cadets did a great job, provided good role models, and fulfilled a valuable JROTC curriculum requirement for Service Learning.

They represented themselves, this school and their community very well.
