Programs through the 21st Century grant are available to all communities on Molokai from the east end to Maunaloa, and Maunaloa has just added a couple new programs for its children to be involved in.

Maunaloa Elementary School has already been providing after-school academic support for children in grades third through sixth. Children are able to attend tutoring support, which gives extra help with homework, and skills support, which is a computer-based learning system for reading and math enrichment. This semester, Maunaloa Elementary School is now able to offer the same after school academic support programs for children in grades kindergarten through second, but the younger children will be able to also participate in crafts during the skills support class. Tutor support and skills support are offered Monday through Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m.

For the first time, Maunaloa Elementary School is also offering hula classes, which are open to children grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Hula classes are being held on Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m. Maunaloa is also still offering their open computer lab on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m. The computer lab is open to anyone to come and have access to the computers and the internet, whether you need to work on a project or just want to browse the web, you are welcome to come and use the resources that are available.
