Momilani eMessenger

A Message from Mrs. Higa
The 2013-14 school year has come and gone and I wish to thank the Momilani students, teachers, staff, families and community for a memorable 25th anniversary year. While our students have made great strides in their academic pursuits and learning, we are equally proud of their development in grit, gratitude and character.

Many thanks to the hard-working Hui O Momilani, Momilani Foundation and parent volunteers, for your tireless and endless support of our school community. Without the partnership of committed families and friends such as ours, Momilani Elementary would not be able to provide this quality education and environment for our students.

 

Best of luck to our graduating sixth grade class, and to our returning students, have a wonderful summer and see you in August!

 

Mrs. Doreen Higa, Principal

Guardians of the GLO Crystals

“Momilania! Momilania! We proudly sing your name. Momilania, Momilania, let us live up to your fame!” The Grade 3 class proudly presented an original drama and musical production in two performances on May 21, 2014. The production was written and directed by their teacher, Mr. Masaru Uchino, with assistance from Mrs. Uyesato.

 

The story takes us to the Kingdom of Momilania, a successful community protected by the powers of the ancient GLO Crystals. Over time, the Guardians of the GLO Crystals have become prideful of their powers and have been constantly arguing with each other. Advised by the Kingdom Elders, The Queen of Momilania, wanting to gain some wisdom of how to handle the bickering Guardians, ventures into the mountains to visit the Shrine of the Ancients with her Crown Guards. In doing so, the Queen gets captured by the Great Dragon of the mountains, and it’s up to the Guardians of the GLO Crystals and all the citizens of Momilania to figure out a way to get her back to the kingdom unharmed.

“Good Manners: A Medieval Quest for Polite Behavior”

“Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Get ready lords and ladies for a musical quest from the Middle Ages!” A wicked spell has been cast on the kingdom: good manners have suddenly disappeared and it’s up to Sir Gwendolyn and Sir Dancelot to bring them back. The Grade 2 classes were proud to present this comical musical production in two performances April 30, 2014.

 

 

This year’s “Water Play” Day 2014 kicked off with an extra dose of water from rainy weather on May 19. The Honolulu Fire Department “tested” their fire hydrants performing “fire hose” drills at Momilani Elementary School. Extra-large tarps were laid out for slipping and sliding fun for our students. Special thanks to the Waiau Fire Department for their participation and community support!

 

 

The year-end Awards Assembly was held Wednesday, May 27. We are pleased to highlight some of the recent accomplishments and achievements of our active Momilani student body!

It was another record year for the Momilani Elementary School Foundation’s Bubbies Mochi Ice cream Fundraiser. Thanks to the generous support and donations of Momilani’s friends & families, we were able to make a profit of $30,000!  This will be used for future projects to help enrich our children’s learning environment at school.
