Momilani Monthly Newsletter
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!)
Mrs. Umeda is the new Science Resource Teacher that will be overseeing the Science curriculum.
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: smile.amazon.com 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.
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. This summer Mr. Asselstine was fortunate enough to present these projects at several international conferences including ISTE2015 and Minecon2015!
We are excited to being our second year working with Google Apps for Education! This year we look forward to integrating Google Sites, Google Calendar, and Google Classroom.
We have started the year with a focus on Coding. Students in grades K-6 will be working on learning to code within programs like Code Studio, The Foos, Kodu, and ComputercraftEdu. Interested in findout out more? Stop by the lab and talk to Mr. Asselstine.
