  • 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:

Whenever you can -we appreciate your engagement.  

  • Winter Concert Info:  All students are asked to dress in “Aloha

Attire.” For the girls that would mean dresses with an Aloha/Hawaiian Print and for the boys that would mean a collared Aloha Shirt with long pants/jeans. Registration will begin at 4:30pm, students should be dropped off at the Homerooms no later than 4:40. We will be having the concert outside this year, so you are invited to bring your lawn chairs and blankets. 

We are in need of donations of greenery for the Winter Concert on 12/13 . Does anyone have a connection to a Nursery that would be willing to loan Greenery for our event? We’d like to create a Hawaiian feel to the stage, but will need greenery to make it happen. 

  • Before School Care?:  According to a parent survey, there was some interest in providing before school care. The YMCA is Kailua Elementary School's before school care provider. They need at least 20 students in order to run the program. The program would run from 6 a.m. - first bell. The activities would be board games, coloring, or reading in the morning. Students would be able to bring breakfast or they would take them over to the breakfast program. The cost is $65 a month. Before the YMCA can start the program, we need a commitment of at least 20 students. Please complete the commitment form if you are committed to participating in the Honu Newsletter - Once we have 20 students, we will work with the YMCA to plan the logistics of the program. Thank you!

  • PTSA Message:

NEXT MEETING: December 17th 5:30pm Library
AMAZON SMILE: With the holiday shopping season upon us, PTSA wants you to know that they are a registered non-profit with Amazon SMILE. What that means is if you are already an AMAZON shopper, you can simply register under AMAZON SMILE and for every $1 you spend, Kailua Elementary School will receive .5% of whatever you 
spend. It does not cost you a thing. All you have to do is use the general search field and search for kailua elem pta once you have signed up for Amazon Smile. If you are already signed up and using Amazon Smile, you just need to click on your Smile Section and then change the organization.

Spelling Bee?  Our PTSA is at the beginning stages of planning a Spring Spelling Bee. This idea was brought to them from one of our students. In an effort to honor Student Voice on our campus, Dr. Jaffe, PTSA Board Member has volunteered to help coordinate this event with support. He knows there are probably others that would like to take part in this as well. If you are interested in making this happen on our campus, please e-mail me and I will pass your name and contact info onto Dr. Jaffe.

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!
