CS for ALL Night

December 8, 2017

 

It’s time for the 3rd annual CS for ALL Night!


Did you know that 71% of all new careers in STEM are in computing? Teaching computer science is definitely foundational. We have brought in more industry connections, hands on activities, and incredible demonstrations of computer science in action!

This year we also have a featured activity, Micro:bits! A Micro:bit is a small programmable computer! Participation in this activity will require a pre-ordered Micro:bit. Supplies are limited so get yours now!  Pick up will be at the event.

 

Learn more about the Micro:bit here!

 

To make things more convenient for our families and community, you can pre-order dinner! We will be having a taco bar from Moe's Southwest Grill!


Come spend the night exploring the many ways in which computer science impacts all students!

Pre-order Deadline is December 1, 2017

Costume Ball

Friday, October 27. 2017

 

Aloha, everyone that came and thank you for going to Momilani costume ball to have a scaredy time. We are thanking everyone that came to the scariest, coolest and most boo-tiful ball ever! It was on October 27, 2017 on a Friday at the cafeteria. All families that came to the have a halloween ball and had a great time! Just think what you could have done there! We had a costume parade, a haunted house, games, and dinner, and everyone's favorite: The Flash Mob.

 

“The difference from this year and last year is there are different games and the haunted house was way scarier.” said Aunty Keli.


This year’s song for the flash mob was “Better When I’m Dancing.” Thanks to, aunty Ann, aunty Keli, and aunty Stacie for figuring out the dance moves for the song. Our aunties worked hard for the flash mob. Parents could've join in but watch how your kids do it first to learn the moves!


We had a cool costume parade! Everyone who looked like a monster, witch, and video game/movie character or anything else could of march to show everyone what your costume looks like. The costume parade was for all the kids there. Everyone lined up in their costumes and walk around the cafeteria. The costume parade is to judge kids for their costumes. The winner would receive a receipt...

Complex Basketball

November 18, 2017

 

“Swish!” goes the ball through the net on the first practice. The practices were awesome! We did lay-ups, three man weave, dribbling, and scrimmages. We mixed up the teams for the scrimmages to get us better prepared for the tournament. Both the sixth and the fifth grade teams were good coming into practice, but way better coming out.  Shaherra told me, “ At the beginning of basketball I couldn't dribble a ball twice without losing it. But at the end I could actually dribble the ball down and back across the court”


On game day November 18, about 30 players from Momilani Elementary school went up to Pearl City High School for the Annual Complex Basketball Tournament...

 

 

Thanksgiving

November 23, 2017

 

What is the meaning of Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is a national holiday to give thanks for the blessing of the harvest. The first Thanksgiving celebration was in 1621, when the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast. They shared pumpkin, squash, berries, clams, and fish. Ever since 1863, Thanksgiving has been celebrated as a national holiday on the last Thursday in November, after Abraham Lincoln proclaimed it as a national holiday of "Our Beneficent Father Who Dwelleth in the Heavens." We wouldn't be eating turkey for Thanksgiving dinner if it weren't for him...
