Mission & References


“Cool the School” campaign is a mission to create better learning environments by raising awareness about hot classroom temperatures and raising funds to install solar powered air conditioning units at Farrington High School.

In recent years, we have experienced classrooms temperatures upwards of 90°F. Not only are these temperatures uncomfortable, but they are also affecting academics. Studies have shown that the optimal temperature for learning is approximately 73°F. Students are our future leaders.

Please help our mission to provide the optimal learning environments that help ensure a quality education and successful future for our students.

We are fundraising to “Cool the School”.  Each solar powered AC unit will cost approximately $20,000 per portable classroom.  Farrington High School has 12 portable classrooms.

Principal's Message

To Our Potential Sponsors,

Aloha!! Welcome to Farrington High School, the home of the Governors.   As principal, I have had the pleasure of witnessing gradual improvements and achievements on our campus. Our entire school community strives for excellence and our goal is to get the most out of our students and help them to achieve more.

Every year, we strive to better ourselves in and out of the classroom.  In order to do that, our classroom must provide the optimal learning experience.  During the hot muggy months here on the islands, our classrooms can become unbearable which makes learning difficult.  We need to raise money to cool our classrooms beginning with installing energy efficient solar powered air conditioners in the portable classrooms on campus.

The unit we have selected has been pre-approved by the Hawaii Department of Education.  Each unit will cost $20,000.  Farrington High School has 12 portable classrooms.

We also have other needs on our campus such as more classroom resources, repaving our parking lots and money for bus transportation for field trips and athletics.

Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $240,000 by making a donation, purchasing a Contagus discount savings membership, or buying Farrington High School logo’d apparel. Your sponsorship is greatly appreciated.

Through hard work and providing our students the optimal learning environment, our students can achieve to the best of their ability.  We hope to instill in them work ethic, character and academic excellence by providing the students the tools to be successful on and off the campus grounds.

Thank you in advance for your generous support of the Farrington High School “Cool the School Campaign”.
