Momilani Monthly Newsletter

August eMessenger


We are excited to kick off this school year with new friends and families at Momilani Elementary School. 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. Some commute from as far away as Kaneohe, Waianae, Ewa Beach, and Wahiawa.


Our community of learners is motivated to learn, 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...


On Tuesday, August 18, 2015, guests from Hyuga City, Japan arrived in Hawaii for the first portion of the 2015 Momilani-Hyuga Junior Ambassador Exchange Program.  Established in 2007, the program was created as a friendly bi-annual cultural exchange to strengthen cultural and educational ties between Hawaii and Japan.  With the vision and support of Mrs. Doreen Higa, the 2015 program has begun the fifth bi-annual exchange between Momilani and Hyuga City.

The 2015 Exchange Program consists of eight 5th and 6th grade students from Hyuga City, Japan, and eight 5th and 6th grade students from Momilani, who applied and interviewed for a position to participate in the program.  In addition to the sixteen students, three Hyuga City chaperones, and three Momilani chaperones were also selected to participate in and facilitate the exchange as well.  Each of the students, as well as the chaperones, participated in a “homestay” with an assigned “Host Family” while here in Hawaii for the duration of the exchange...


You may have started to see them already, but there are many new faces at Momilani Elementary this year!

Sharara “Shar” Kamin

Mrs. Kamin is the new part-time Library Assistant. (Ms. Iris will still be around once in awhile though!)


Karen Umeda

Mrs. Umeda is the new Science Resource Teacher that will be overseeing the Science curriculum.


Linda Nakata

Mrs. Nakata will be a part-time teacher focusing on grades K-2.



A big theme here at school is ‘WE over ME.’ Our kids have made pictures and essays with this theme in mind, some of which are: teamwork, making sacrifices for a greater good, and how “many hands make light work.” Partnering with our school not only helps fund many necessary supplies, repairs, and events, but also helps our keiki reach educational milestones and become better community members. For this school year, we are in need of volunteers for an array of positions.


PLEASE consider volunteering and partnering with your child’s school. A large part of the success of Momilani Elementary is due to the tremendous efforts of our wonderful volunteers...



Did you know there’s a great way to help our school raise funds while shopping??? Momilani Elementary is part of the AmazonSmile program where .5% of your eligible purchases will be donated to the school, at no cost to you, at the same low prices, and with your existing account. In order to do this, you must go on:  and when prompted in the box, type in ‘Momilani Elementary School Foundation’ or ‘Hui O Momilani Parent Teacher Organization.’ You can choose between either organization as they both help the school...




Administering and Storing Medication in the Health Room

Certain prescribed medications can be administered by the Health Aide for selected students. Please follow the Department of Health forms procedures. Please contact Mrs. Yvette Mericle, Health Aide, for more information at 453-6444.


Allergy Alert

We have students on our campus who are highly allergic to peanuts, peanut products (including dust and oil) and tree nuts, which can trigger life-threatening emergencies. For this reason, we are a “PEANUT/NUT FREE” school. Our cafeteria does not serve any food with peanut or nut ingredients.


National Immunization Awareness

August is National Immunization Awareness Month sponsored by the CDC and National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. Immunizations help prevent potentially deadly diseases like the flu and measles.




MinecraftEdu in the Classroom

Last year, grades 3-6 worked on projects within MinecraftEdu that included designing a zoo, digital storytelling, roller coaster experiments, and industry.
