Greetings & Aloha Momilani ´Ohana,

The end of the school year is always a memorable time. We get to celebrate our successes, reflect on the challenges that we faced throughout the year, and begin to set goals for the next school year.

 

The summer break is a great time when we can “recharge” our systems, both physically and mentally, so that we can dig deeper in our thinking and continue to travel along the wonderful journey of learning.

Pleas print the following small reminder list and post on your bulletin board, refrigerator, or other visible place at home so that you will always know what you can work on over the summer break.

 

We wish you all a restful break and look forward to the many exciting education adventures in the new school year to come.

 

This mini “brochure” is a small reminder list for you to post on your bulletin board, refrigerator, or other visible place at home so that you will always know what you can work on over the summer break.

With Aloha,

Momilani Faculty and Staff

It is always a special time when we have watched our students grow from the first day of K to the lastday of 6th grade. This year, we have a few students that have written a reflection of the times at Momilani through the eyes of a student. Click below to read the full writeups by our graduating 6th graders.

 

KanaS

Have you ever thought of having to leave your best friends after years of getting to know each other?  This year I am graduating 6th grade and I am going to miss a lot of my friends that are going to different schools.  I have made so many great friends and have had many great teachers at Momilani that I will remember forever.  There are so many remarkable memories that I have made throughout my years at Momilani....READ MORE

Wow, time has flown by!  This year I am graduating from 6th grade and I am going to miss all my friends. We are heading off to different schools and I am going to miss all my friends.  During my years at Momilani I had superior teachers and friends that I will always remember...READ MORE

What do you do when the temperature starts to rise? When all you can think about is the heat...you setup sprinklers and slides of course!

 

Momilani students were able to beat the heat on Wednesday, May19th at the annual Water Play Day at Momilani. Students from Kindergarten through 6th Grade were able to cool off during the event at the upper field, and many of the staff members could also be seen splashing around and having fun with the keiki. After working so hard in our classes all year long, this annual event was a big treat for the students.  One student could be heard shouting after coming down one of the slides that, “Water Play Day is AWESOME!” which was a definite sign that this year’s event was another success...

A long time ago in a land far away, there was a small farming village that flourished from the fresh water provided by the three Water Cycle Kingdoms high up in the Mizu Mountains. For generations, the townspeople of the village relied on the consistent flow of water from the nearby stream and the steady rainfall which watered their land. Over time, trouble began to brew up in the three Water Cycle Kingdoms, which would soon endanger the fate of the little village and all its citizens. The unlikeliest of heroes takes a brave, but heartfelt stand before the rulers of the Kingdoms, which ultimately helps them to remember that sometimes it’s the small things that matter in life, and that the little unseen and unnoticed things can really make all the difference in the world...

“Hooray!”  “You did it!” Congratulations Lynk, Avery, and Alexa!

The JPO students are training hard for the annual JPO competition. They practice on Thursdays at the upper field after lunch.  Officers Martinez and Paringit give commands to them to get them ready for the contest.

Last year after the school wide Hour of Code Night, one of our parents Nick Kamin donated a class set of programmable robots known as Dash and Dotto the school. They are created by Wonder Workshop (https://www.makewonder.com/) and come with a wide range of free apps for programming. We were very excited when they arrived, and began to play around with them immediately.

 

To play with these robots, we used apps called Go, Wonder, and Xylo. Using Xylo, you can program a song and the robot can play it on a xylophone. Some of the groups were trying to do two things at once with their robots. For example, one group played the xylophone while moving forward or going in a circle. We were also able to play some songs and notes using one of the apps and one of the groups were able to play the pop song “Lean and Dabb.” Even one of the staff members, Daniel Neiva was able to come out and program a song...

A study from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing found that kids who eat protein (ie. eggs) for breakfast feel fuller longer and consume fewer calories at lunch than kids who eat cereal or oatmeal.
