Momilani Monthly Newsletter

December eMessenger

Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream fundraiser brings a record breaking $31,000!


Thanks to the generous support and donations of Momilani’s friends & families, we were able to make a profit of approximately $31,000 which will be used for future projects to help enrich our children's learning environment at school.


The Foundation would like to thank all the people who helped-- From preparing the tickets for sales, to running out in the hot sun to deliver the goods, this event would not have been a success without your team effort.

Momilani School of Hoops After School Basketball starts


The School of Hoops is a basketball program that works in partnership with our own Hui O Momilani.  Starting from the August, a total of 119 students enrolled!  Mr. Omine (Gr. 1 teacher), Mr. Yuen (Gr. 2 teacher), and Mr. Hernandez (parent) will conduct the classes. There is also a mentorship program where selected 6th graders will volunteer and mentor students in grades K-2.
