Cobras, hope you had a safe and festive New Year, we will see you back at school on Monday, January 9th!

Earlier this week each class showcased their vocal and dancing talents to a variety of musical treats.  We would like to thank our music teacher Mrs. Pierson for coordinating the program.  PE teacher Coach D also joined in the fun by playing his guitar and singing a duet with Mrs. Pierson.

Thank you for supporting our Ohana Night last night.  The weather was perfect and we had over 265 in attendance.  Our Student Council selected the movie “Minions” for the event and it was a hit for our kids and kids at heart.  A special mahalo to the Friends of Koko Head School for organizing the event and to Kaiser High School JROTC and Key Club students for volunteering to make the event a success.

Today the Lancers from the Niu Valley Middle School music department treated us to a splendid musical experience.  Our students got to experience familiar and new tunes from the band, orchestra, and Polynesian music class.  Thank you Niu Valley Middle for performing at our school!

On November 7, 2016, our art room was transformed into a “We Vote Hawaii” voting polling station.  Students in Gr. K-5 voted online for candidates of US President, US and Hawaii Senators and US and Hawaii Representatives, Honolulu Mayor, and other key races.  Great job Cobras!


Just a reminder Cobras to bring in your recyclables tomorrow morning.  Parents come join us to help sort the recyclable items!
