On Sunday, February 8th, the Momilani staff celebrated Kupuna Pang’s 88th birthday. Kupuna Pang has been an integral part of Momilani Elementary since 1986. For the past 29 years, she has been faithfully teaching the children about Hawaiian culture, music, dance and language. We are so blessed to have her be a part of our community, sharing her spirit of kindness, respectfulness, and humility. Her overall wish is to have the students always happy in their educational programs and to embrace their education with a positive and optimistic attitude. From all of us---parents, alumni, students, staff, and teachers: Happy Birthday Kupuna Pang!

The Curriculum fair will be held on Wednesday, March 4th from 2:15 to 5pm. Each year, individual grade levels display curriculum related projects and assignments that are in progress or have been completed. At the Fair, students have the opportunity to proudly display their hard work and families are encouraged to walk around the campus to see what the children are doing in their class as well as in Technology, Fine Arts, and Health. There will also be 2 sessions held in the library for parents to learn about the Smarter Balance Assessment at 2:30 and 4:30,  and a “meet and greet,” for incoming Kindergarten students in Rooms 105-106.

The Momilani School Community Council (SCC) present our annual Spring Olympics on Friday, March 13th. All grades will participate in fitness activities and games run by the staff at Momilani. By this time, all students should have received their sponsorship packet.


Sponsorship for the children in these activities has been monumental to Momilani Elementary in making sure our students can access up-to-date textbooks for each grade level.

 

Last year, over $20,000 was raised and went towards the purchase of the common-core aligned reading program “Wonders.” Participation and volunteering are greatly appreciated.

 

Momilani Elementary School PTSO will hold its 5th annual Hui O Momilani Basketball Clinic on Saturday, April 18th at the Pearl City High School Gymnasium.

On January 28th, the 4th grade classes performed their drama, “Biomes,” to a packed crowd.  “Biomes” was about a group of animals who escaped from the zoo and travelled the globe looking for the right biome that fit their need to survive.  Along the way, they met different animals and living organisms who gave them tips on how to find their appropriate homes. The kids did an awesome job. Mr. Aurio and Mrs. Kanoho are very proud of their hard work and achievement. They would like to thank: Mr. Daniel Nieva, parents, family members, Eun Joo Kim, Bobby Asato, Shari Takahashi,  Ashley Toribio, Haley Simon, Reyn Sugitaya, Mr. Uchino, Rona Kono, Eddie Antonio, Frank Pineda, Mrs. Higa, Mr. Arakawa and the Hui O Momilani for supporting the arts in the classroom.


The performance was dedicated to Mr. Bill Ogilvie.

From the Healthroom:

Recently, we had a lot of students along with the staff that has been experiencing the Flu or Flu like symptoms.  Signs of illnesses such as coughing, runny nose (thick or green/yellow colored mucus), diarrhea and/or fever.  We try our best to keep the school sick free by disinfecting and sanitize our classrooms on a daily basis,  It would be greatly appreciated if your child follows proper hand washing and covering of their mouth/nose for coughing and sneezing.  We ask that you keep your child home if your child is showing signs of the Flu or any illness that might be contagious to others.  Also, if your child is sent home with a fever, policy is that the child may NOT return, until fever is gone for 24 hours.
