Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

 

We are excited to kick off this school year with new friends and families at Momilani Elementary School. We are excited the sounds of learning once again fill our classroom and expect this year to be an amazing experience for everyone. Our school operates in conjunction with Momilani School Community Council (SCC), Hui O Momilani (PTSO), Momilani Elementary School Foundation, and other supportive organizations. Approximately 25% of our students attend Momilani Elementary on geographic exceptions, commuting from as far away as Kaneohe, Waianae, Ewa Beach, and Wahiawa.

 

Our community of learners is motivated to build quality relationships, willing to take risks, empowered to think critically, solve problems, make decisions, and assume responsibility for a quality education. Learning is nurtured in a safe, positive, caring environment where democratic ideals, learning styles, and multiple intelligences are respected and encouraged. Students, teachers, staff, parents, and the community demonstrate a sense of unity, harmony, and mission, by accepting, respecting, and working collaboratively with one another...

  2. Send a backup shirt
  3. Simple is best
  4. Small patterns or solids are good
  5. Iron those collars
  6. Always bring a comb
  7. Manage hair with accessories
  8. Avoid "hat head"
  9. Got braces? Let them shine
  10. Start with a positive message

We are happy to welcome back Uncle Steven and Creative Colors for another year as our photographer for picture day!

 

 

180 New Chromebooks

 

It can be a struggle these days with limited budgets to maintain a 1:1 system. This year, we were very fortunate though to be able to purchase 180 brand new HP Chromebooks and put them into the hands of our students.

 

Gone are the old 2007 laptops we had in K-2! These devices will provide a more consistent experience for all students in these grades when working ondigital programs and integrated technology.

 

 

What medications can the school give to my child?

  • No medication will be stored in school with the exception of those medications given
    regularly and Epi-Pen, glucagon and emergency inhalers.
  • Medications for daily, routine, and/or life threatening conditions may be administered
    during the school day. Medications should be given at home as much as possible unless
    there are reasons, provided by the physician, why it must be given during the school day.
  • Antibiotics, analgesics and over the counter medications will not be administered at school.
  • No "as needed" pro re nata (PRN) medications will be administered during the school day.

Each year we look at different ways to integrate technology into our curriculum. Be it through student focused tools, project-based learning, or game-based learning.

 

The begginning of the year hold so much potential and it is an exciting time! We will continue our work with GAFE, Minecraft, Coding, and game design. As well as looking at adding animation, robotics, drones, and 3D design.
