Welcome Back to School 


I hope you all had a fun-filled summer with your family!! I was excited to meet many new students and parents!!  I am so happy to have your families join our Kanoelani ohana!  I was happy to see those of you who have returned to Kanoelani!!  It is so nice to see your friendly faces again this year!!




Culturally Diverse Population
Kanoelani students come from a diverse group of cultures.  All the cultures are as interesting and as special as our students.  We currently have 54 students in our ELL Program.  Our ELL population speaks ten different languages. They are: Ilocano, Tagalog, Spanish, Japanese, Samoan, Pampango, Arabic, Marshallese, Hawaiian, and Vietnamese.
Parent Orientation - September 27, 2017
I hope you can join us for our Parent Orientation on Wednesday, September 27th from 8:00am-9:00am. Come and learn about the ELL program, meet our Tagalog/Ilocano-speaking School Home Assistant (SHA), and meet other parents.  Invitations were sent home on September 6th.  Please sign and return the bottom of the page.



All ELL students have a Raz-Kids online reading account.  Account passwords for your child's account were sent home with the September bulletin.  Your child has access to so many interesting books at their reading level!  Have your children listen to the books, record themselves reading their books, then take a quiz to check for comprehension.  If your children forgot their password, please let me know and I can give it to them.
