ALL VISITORS AND PARENTS must report to the office to sign in for a school visitor pass. This is to ensure safety, provide accountability, support students, and respect learning.


For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.

Mahalo to our Volunteers! - Bringing life back to our School Garden

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit." ~Nelson Henderson

Volunteers give their time, energy and wisdom to projects and causes that they sincerely care about. As a school community, we rely on partnerships that are driven by the passion and dedication of selfless & caring individuals to help make our work of educating our Keiki possible.

We are profoundly grateful to 4th grade parent (Mrs. Chun’s class), Mr. Aka Kanahelehele-Oclinaria, Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner and Mr. Lacona; who are giving of their knowledge, inspiration, time and energy to help care for our (Rotary Club sponsored) school garden and helping to bring it back to life!
