PK-5 Hawaiian Studies
Hawaiian Studies is an enrichment dedicated to the history, the culture, and the language unique to our Hawaiian Island home. Aloha resides here and is the key to nurturing and raising kind, strong, healthy, thoughtful, and helpful individuals. 
Haumana (students) learn how to malama (take care of) themselves, their community, and our environment through rich stories and lessons of the past and present. Various activities through language, music, art, dance, games, positive affirmations, and more help build character and make lessons fun. 
Most classes are held outdoors to emphasize the importance of paying attention to our surroundings and resources. Routines such as breath work, identifying growth in nature, and whole-body wellness help our keiki to feel good about themselves and empower them to practice Aloha daily.

Ancestral wisdom is shared in the classroom through reading, self-expression, informative videos, arts and crafts, and community outreach.
