Grade 5 Grandparents Day

By: Marina Vowell

Every year, Kindergarten through 5th Grade, host a performance for the grandparents of Momilani. This year, this will be 5th grade’s last performance during their time at Momilani. They’re working really hard to make their families feel special. The class’s teachers, Mrs. Barnett and Mr. Kashiwa, chose to perform the songs, “I Believe” by Iakopo , and “Pate Pate”, a Tahitian dance.

Momilani grandparents’ day is a day where the students show their appreciation and love to their beloving grandparents. This is a special day that the students get to make their family feel appreciated. They leave down to lunch early to meet up with their family, and eat lunch together. After that, they go up on the stage and perform their performance for the families of the class. Once the performance finishes, they say their goodbyes to their family members and head back to class while the grandparents leave.

“I feel heart warming because I know I made them happy. I feel really glad to see their faces light up.”

-Maddisyn Martinez

5th grade is working very hard on their grandparents day, the day they make their grandparents feel remarkable. It helps remind them how special they are to their grandparents, and how important their grandparents are to the students lives. This is 5th grade’s last performance for the grandparents while they’re at Momilani Elementary School. They want to make sure that this performance is going to last in their families’ hearts for a long time.

“I feel happy and proud when I see their faces because they are always smiling which shows me that they enjoyed themselves.”

-Avery Teraoka

Momilani is grateful to have a chance to make our Momilani families feel welcomed. From the Momilani Ohana, we would like to say Thank You for making this happen!


Sixth Grade Grandparents Day

By: Allison Tsuha

Maybe you’re familiar with sitting at a table and relaxing while eating lunch for your Grandparents Day. Well, for the parents and grandparents of sixth grade students, they won’t be listening to a song but the loud clatter of bowling pins falling down as you bowl against your friends and family. Sixth Grade’s Ohana Bowling event allows all people, young and old, to try their hand at bowling.

Mrs. Maile Yasui, the sixth grade teacher, said “I love 'Ohana bowling day! It gives our students a chance to make a fun memory with their family.”

And that’s exactly what the students did. All of the students spent a few hours bowling and eating great food at Barber’s Point Bowling Center. Lots of memories were made as the sixth graders went on this unusual field trip

“I’m very excited to spend time with my family members and unlike any other year we are going on a field trip together instead of doing our annual dance luncheon.” Student Emma Kanoho said before the bowling field trip.

The Sixth Grade Grandparents day ended up being a huge success! Thank you, all of the Momilani Parents and Grandparents for attending and the Sixth-Grade teachers for making this event a success.


Kindergarten’s 1st grandparents day

By: Eva Romualdo

Aloha! Kindergarten’s first grandparents day is finally here!

On December 17, 2019, the kindergarteners had their first ever Grandparent’s Day in Momilani Elementary School!

Kindergarten was not the only grade there to have lunch with their loved ones. The Preschoolers also joined in with their grandparents too. It was really full with a lot of kindergartners, grandparents, preschoolers, and smiles.

After the kids and families ate, the Momilani kindergarteners performed a dance and songs for their beloved family. They performed Mele Kalikimaka, Jingle Bells/Kanikani Pele, Here Comes Santa in a Red Canoe, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas. It was amazing!

“The Kindergarteners did an excellent job performing for their guests and enjoyed eating lunch with their loved ones” -Mrs. Yoshimura

Also the MAD (Make a Difference) team was helping out with the ohana’s like getting more cups, pouring water, giving napkins, and more. They all had fun and sang super awesome.

“ Kumu Shel helped us to learn the songs in Hawaiian and also taught us motions to go along. Everyone loved the performance!” -Mrs.Sasaki


Science Olympiad Competition

By: Erica Supan

On December 14, there was a competition that tested Momilani Science Olympiads team!


The team has been working hard to create models and plans to win this years competition. This year, teams studied stars, our digestive systems, birds, rocks, and more! Eventually, they created multiple prototypes and plans, infused with all their effort and care.

“It’s a very interesting experience to learn things under pressure.”

-Tyler Wee, Grade 6

“Science Olympiad is a cool group where we could learn more science. We even got the chance to participate in a competition!”

-Tera Cypriano, Grade 6

Later, at the event, the Momilani Science Olympiad team competed in an Oahu tournament. Public and private schools entered from all across the island. This contest was from 7a.m. to 12:15p.m. and held about nine different events. All these events were related to S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), in a particular way.

It’s Momilani’s second year competing in the HSSO competition. Though this year we had very little time to work, we still have hope to win in this year's competition. To be exact, we had a little less than 2 weeks to prepare for this year’s competition.

The team 12 teams are consisted of normal people. There are 9 schools and 12 teams. The competition has 7 events and a few of them are building and a few are test events.

Momilani ended up placing below 3rd place but we did good enough to not get last place!
