  • MAHALO KAKOU! We appreciate all of our volunteers - parents and school community, staff, and faculty for your continued help and support. We wouldn't be able to do this without you! Mahalo.


  • Volunteers Wanted! Thank you SO much to all those who have stepped up and showed up to help with lunch room monitoring, reading help, and simply being present on campus.  Our keiki need your positive influence and our school community appreciates YOU!  We still need help with the following: 

  • Newsletter Reminders:

    • School Quality Surveys - please fill it out and return to your child's teacher. Mahalo.

    • Still in need of board and card games for before and after school care. Drop off at the office if you have any to spare. 

    • Box Tops are ongoing and can be submitted online now. Please consider saving yours and donating to the school as the money earned allows for the extra fun opportunities for everyone. 

    • Donations Wanted! Makerspace is looking for fabric. Mrs. Kimhan needs empty soda/water bottles and paper towel rolls, and Mrs. Mitchell needs plastic lids from Gatorade, water, and 2-liter bottles. 

  • Maker’s Fair Family Night Honubot Fundraiser! our State Champion Honubots are trying to earn their way to Houston to compete in the International FLL Competition, and are having a fundraiser at the Maker Fair Family Night. You should have received a Pre-Order Form in the Thursday Folder. The Honubots will be offering a hot dog, chips and a drink for $5, so order yours today! Or if you don’t want to eat hot dogs for dinner that night, but you’d like to make a donation to the Honubots, feel free to do so. You can submit all donations to the office, with Attention: Mr. Kent or Mrs. Tom and labeled, Donation for the Honubots.

  • Get Your Yearbooks!  We sold out last year and there was still a demand for books. Purchase yours by February 15th for only $25! PTSA has kindly purchased yearbooks for all 6th graders - mahalo PTSA for this amazing gift.​ 

  • Speech Festival 2020: If your child loves to speak in front of groups, or would like to improve in this area, this is a great opportunity to do so! The flier was the Thursday folder a couple of weeks ago. Please fill out the form if you’d like your child to participate in the Wednesday afterschool sessions. Or simply come to the second session on February 19 at 1pm in Room D-33 and check it out.

Kailua Elementary is a wonderful place of learning, where our staff and students live out

our school values of

Honu P.R.I.D.E.

Here at Kailua Elementary, we all strive to make our school the best school on the island. A place where our students feel safe and supported and aren't afraid to take chances, share their thoughts and ideas while growing as learners.

Kailua Elementary is a place where the whole child is given the opportunity to explore and learn through Music, Art, Physical Education, Technology, and our Library. Kailua Elementary teachers are lifelong learners, passionate about the craft of teaching English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies while guiding their students when learning new concepts and skills.

Our teachers provide our student's opportunities to wonder, dream, ask questions, and seek answers about the world we live in today, so they can be best prepared to lead the world of tomorrow.

We are a diverse school of approximately

350 students with on average 2 classes per grade level, which has a small town feel. Together our 'Ohana: teachers, students, parents, and community, have created a wonderful place for learning. We encourage you to come by, visit our great school, feel the aloha, and learn more about

Kailua Elementary

Congratulations to all of our exceptional students for their hard work and always demonstrating what it means to have Honu PRIDE.

Mahalo Nui to all of our families, teachers, and support staff for encouraging our students to always do their best!
