April eMessenger

On Friday, March 13, The Momilani School Community Council (SCC) held their annual Spring Olympics. Unlike past years, we had perfect weather - clear and cool, and most importantly, NO rain!  Students were divided into multi-grade teams and circulated through a variety of fun and exciting events.  There was something for everyone including “Clean Up Your Yard Game,”  “Bean Bag Freeze Tag,” “Constructors and Destroyers Stacker Cups,” and “Parachute” games.

Momilani is a great place to come to school and the Student Leadership Team and Make a Difference Team are encouraging all of you to show your school spirit!

 

The week of April 13 - 17 is Spirit Week!

  • Monday: Disney Day
  • Tuesday: Neon Day

Brown Bags to Stardom is a talent show that has been in the Hawaiian Islands for many years and has recently expanded it's talent portion to the Elementary School level. This is the third year that Momilani Elementary has been able to send representatives to compete.

 

We are so happy to announce that we will be sending three students to represent Momilani Elementary in the Musical Category: This year, there were eight performances performed by ten 3rd-6th grade students.

 

 

“We over Me,” is the theme of the art contest sponsored by Hui O Momilani (PTSO) this year. All students are encouraged to enter and express what “We over Me,” means to them. Entries can either be in literature, photography, or visual arts, and will be held for three divisions (Grades K-1, 2-3, 4-6). Entries will be displayed on campus and the winners announced at Family Fun Night. There will also be a competition between all classrooms for a perpetual trophy and party. The deadline for entering is on Friday, April 10th. Please see flyer for more entry guidelines and information.

   

 

Although it was a rainy evening, there was an outstanding turnout at the Curriculum Fair. Unlike previous years, this past Fair was held in individual classrooms. Each grade level had a classroom open to display all the great work they have done thus far and family members enjoyed being able to get a glimpse of what the students were doing in their classes.  It was great to see the pride beaming over the students when they showed their families their hard work.

 

 

On March 24, 2015 our 6th grade classes had two missions.  The 1st Mission was at 8:30 a.m. and the 2nd was at 11:30 a.m. The 1st Mission didn’t go so well but our 2nd Mission was a success.  Students are put through batteries of tests that they have to be able to communicate with each other.  One group of students begin in Mission Control while the other group report to Space Station.  It really gives the students a real life idea of what it would be like to be up in space and having to deal with real life situations. The kids really enjoy themselves while learning all about working together.  It is a fun filled experience for all of the students.

 

 

We had a very successful reading/movie night on Friday, February 27.  There was a large turnout of almost 300 people and we all enjoyed our movie, "My Neighbor Totoro." We also had a book table and our student ohana were able to share their books with each other.

 

On behalf of the co-chairs of Reading/Movie Night, we just want to thank all the families that came out to Celebrate Reading Night. It was a huge success! The attendance may have been double from the prior year and there was an over abundance of donated books for the book exchange!

We wanted to especially thank all the volunteers that helped out that night.

Healthroom:

The recent outbreak of measles on the west coast had everyone on eggshells about a possible outbreak here in Hawaii. As of now, no cases of measles related to the “Disneyland outbreak,” have been reported in this state. However, in February and October of last year, there were different incidents of measles here in the state-- 1 in Oahu, 2 in Maui, and 1 in Kauai. What they all had in common were unvaccinated young adults who had traveled overseas, mostly to different parts of Asia.

 

 

Monthly Burning Question

In this age of digital, future ready schools and a more digital delivery of teaching / learning this months burning question is, "How much screen time is too much?" In the end, it comes down to balance and purpose.
