Our school joined the rest of the Kaiser Complex Schools to celebrate “Connect & Respect” day by wearing pink.

Our students, faculty, and staff wore pink heart stickers.  The heart symbolized the importance of being caring to all and the pink represented the color of an eraser to send a message to erase all forms of bullying.

Our school’s afterschool SCRATCH club participated in the Hour of Code.

SCRATCH is an open source programming language produced at MIT.

Koko Head School represented Hawaii in the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program as a high performing school.

We are one of three schools from the State of Hawaii to receive this distinction in 2011.  We credit the entire Koko Head Elementary School Ohana, past and present, for this honor.

Our school is part of the Kaiser Complex of the Honolulu District in the State of Hawaii Department of Education.

All the Kaiser Complex schools are committed to providing a World Class Education for our community.

The Kaiser Complex includes:
Koko Head Elementary, Aina Haina Elementary, Hahaione Elementary, Kamiloiki Elementary, Niu Valley Middle School & Henry J. Kaiser High School

Principal Shitaoka and Student Council President Choy addressed the student body at a Back to School Assembly.  Principal Shitaoka shared his message of “Bring Your A-Game.  Attitude and Achievement.”   The students were then treated to the music, dance, and history of Capoeira.  Thanks to our PE teacher Coach D for bringing our special guests, what a treat!
