The Keiki Great Aloha Run takes place on Saturday, February 14th at 8:15 am at the Neal Blaisdell Center. This event will be an "easy", un-timed, 2-mile run event around the Blaisdell Center.

 

There is still time to register! For every registered participant, $15 will come back to Momilani as a donation.

 

This year there will be no Honolulu 5k for Kids, so we are encouraging the entire Momilani Staff, Students, and Families to come out and run this event with us.

 

There will be a bus from Momilani to the event and back. Once you have registered, Please let Mr. Asselstine or Mr. Uchino know if you will be riding the bus.

Last month, we held a winter camp to help students with the practices of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). Mrs. Higa and I, as well as many others, thought that the experience that the students had over the course of 3 days was extraordinary. Staff members partnered with SPAWAR engineers to put on 5 excellent courses.
