The theme for this school year is “Komo mai kau māpuna hoe,” which is an `Ōlelo No`eau
that literally means to put in your dip of the paddle or pitch in. We know that it will take all
of us working together to make this school year successful.
While we know this school year will look very different, we are committed to our mission
of focusing on the whole child. Our weekly schedule will include opportunities to
participate in PE, Health, Social Emotional Learning, Art and Hawaiiana in addition to
academics. These will be done virtually and will be provided by one of our counselors or
This year, communication will be more important than ever. You can also up to date with
any new information by visiting our school website at www.waiakeawaena-
elementary.com. You may also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. I also highly
encourage you to sign up for Remind with your child’s teacher and make sure that your
child’s emergency card in filled out in its entirety and returned as soon as possible.
Remember, we’re all in this together!
