We are beyond thrilled to share many celebrations on our campus despite the daily challenges of this pandemic. As we all finish the school year strong with unity, patience, and serenity, we want to focus on what we are grateful for as a school community:
  1. KUDOs to Ms. Jenna Oskey for being named the 2020-2021 Milken Teacher of Promise for the state of Hawaii. This is a HUGE accomplishment and one that we all can be proud of for our entire faculty.
  2. Hats off to our business partners all named and highlighted on our WE>ME wall of fame. So many community members pulled through this year to help fund unanticipated costs due to the shutdown.
  3. Mahalo to our incredible PTSA for the years and years of service. Due to the pandemic, unfortunately, they are, for now, disbanding since so much of what they do is large in-person events. We are so thankful for all they have done throughout the years. 
Finally- as we head towards the last month of school, we are gearing up to have one celebration with the students. In place of the usual PTSA sponsored Jog-a-Thon, the school will host a Rainbow Run to give students a chance to blow off some steam, get some exercise, AND have something to look forward to before the end of the year.
 
We will be accepting donations of small pre-packaged food items to share with the students for that day. Stay tuned and look out for that upcoming event!
 
For our awesome sixth graders, we will also be having a celebratory drive by in May. This will give our students a chance to dress up, say one last farewell to the school, and take a photo with the administration. Details and information forthcoming.
 
Let's finish strong Kanoelani Ohana! I am beyond proud to be part of such a positive and resilient community and truly believe in WE>ME!!!
