What are you doing to help our 'aina this summer?

Mahalo to many of Kahalu'u Elementarys students and families as they show their support for Project Holomua. Project Holomua worked out of Kahalu'u Elementarys 5th and 6th grade students and did community projects such as a beach clean up in Kahuku, pictured.

Message from the Principal

Dear Kahalu'u School Ohana,
I'm beginning to miss the keiki already and we have one more month of school left! It's been a very busy year for us with the many changes in our curriculum and instruction, prompted by the Department's new initiatives but we remain steadfast in focusing on the education of our children. We have much to be proud of as our students demonstrated proficiency and better in many out of school competitions like the District Science Fair, King's Math Meet, Castle Performing Arts, Sight is Beautiful poster contest and the prestigious MOA Art contests. Through the year we have shared many pictures with these proud activities. The upper grade students also know that we are in the midst of celebrating their academic achievement in the Hawaii State Assessment. In this second and last opportunity, each day we have more and more students who are demonstrating proficiency and beyond. We are looking forward to our last month of school to be memorable and rewarding. Hope to see you all in school!
Your proud partner in education, Mrs. Matsuzaki

What's happening at Kahalu'u?

ATTENTION: Kindergarten Age Change for 2014 School Year
Starting next school year (August 2014) the Department of Education has changed the age requirement for student entrance into Kindergarten. The following link provided will go into greater detail concerning these new changes and standards. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to come by the school office to meet with a school administrator.


WE all have set a goal to increase student attendance, as we all know that school success depends on attendance and promptness to school. No more leaving school early unless absolutely necessary. Show your keiki that SCHOOL IS PRIORITY in your family. Thankfully - we see a great deal less students leaving early or coming to school late. Instructional time is so valuable, it is the treasure that will help your child to "Surpass Expectation with Pride in Achievemnt."
