Erin NakataErin Nakata "Born and raised in rural northern California, I moved to Maui after college and not soon after met my husband, Kaipo. Almost 20 years and three kids later I can’t imagine being happy living anywhere else. We have been fortunate that all three of our children attend Kamehameha Schools-Maui. Kanoa is in seventh grade, Siena is in fifth grade and Kalena is in second grade. We started a small farm right around the time of the pandemic and it was really a saving grace for us to have an outdoor space to spend our days in. I also work on a farm! I am the farm manager for Maui Alpaca and spend most mornings giving tours and taking care of the alpacas and angora rabbits. Mahalo for this opportunity to serve on the PTSO board."

We’ve got a few more years before our Papa Kou is graduated and off to the next chapter in their life. My hope is to make balance of their high school years the best they can be! We have such a great class and it’s been a pleasure getting to know them all. I mua Kamehameha."

A message from the parent community coordinator

Aloha e nā makua o Kamehameha Maui!

Building strong positive relationships with our keiki and ‘ohana is fundamental to our kula. We practice Hawaiian values of aloha, mālama and kuleana to support these positive relationships. We take the time to develop relationships with each keiki, ‘ohana and staff members work together for the benefit of our students.

An active parent is an informed parent, so we hope you visit our Kamehameha Maui Parent Information site often to get the information you need.
