This month marks the 25th anniversary of Mrs. Higa’s tenure as principal of Momilani Elementary. The school celebrated with a special assembly on September 3, 2014, featuring honored guests and an appreciation video featuring the students, teachers and staff of Momilani!

On a sunny September weekend, members of the Pearl City Lions Club, Girl Scouts (Momilani students), and Ms. Rona volunteered to repaint the Momilani Elementary parking lots and curbs. It helped to make the school that much more welcoming. Thank you to all those who participated and volunteered their time to improve our school!

 

Thank you to all those who participated in making our first Recycling Drive of the year a success! Please begin saving up for the next drive and remember to bring in RINSED aluminum cans and plastic bottles.

 

Please DO NOT send any glass bottles or containers as they are a hazard to our students. Thank you very much for your continued support of Momilani Elementary.

 

Mahalo Nui Loa!

 

 

SCC September News & Calling all Momilani alumni parents/current students!

The SCC held its first quarterly meeting of the year in September.  We were excited to be a part of the celebration congratulating Mrs. Higa on her 25 years as principal of Momilani Elementary, turning the school around from a small, almost defunct program, into one of the top performing and sought after elementary schools in the state.   This was a most anticipated event that was initiated by one of our community board members last year who wanted to acknowledge Mrs. Higa’s contributions to the DOE as well as to her positive influence on the thousands of students and their families who have been under her guidance....

Many times we think of wellness in terms of physical or health education, but there is a third type of wellness we like to focus on at Momilani: character. Look for Mr. Nishihara's mGage assignments coming soon.
