We know that with respect to outcomes across our state, the Pacific Islander subgroup is one at risk and plagued by negative outcomes in various areas such as attendance, test scores, behavior and graduation rates. This celebratory event is designed to honor and spotlight our Pacific Islander students who have risen above such statistics and adversities and will soon be graduating. In addition, students and families will have an opportunity to be connected with community members, resources, and opportunities for mentorship.
"No matter how far you go in life, never forget where you come from. You can’t change who you are. We may be planted in different places but we all come from the same root, under the same tree."
