On Tuesday, October 31st, Keone'ula Elementary School will be having a Costume Parade around our school campus. The parade will begin at 8:00 AM and end at approximately 8:30 AM. Your child is invited to dress up and participate. Participation is optional, not mandatory. Here are some guidelines that we would like everyone to follow:
- Costumes may not include any sort of weaponry (guns, swords, knives, etc.). Any toy or accessory resembling a weapon will be confiscated immediately.
- Costumes must comply with Keone'ula Elementary School’s dress code policies (no spaghetti straps, skirts/shorts must be no higher than the tips of the fingers, no bare midriffs, no alcohol/drug references on t-shirts). Students who do not comply with the school’s dress codes will be asked to change immediately.
- No makeup or hairspray application in school. Any coloring of hair must be done at home, prior to coming to school.
- No silly string canisters allowed on campus.
- Students will be touring the entire school campus during the costume parade. Please make sure that your student is able to walk comfortably and safely in his/her costume.
Again, participation in the costume parade is optional. Students who are not participating will still be allowed to view the parade, unless specified by their parent. Students not participating must be dressed in school uniforms. Also, if you would like your child to change out of their costume after the parade is done, please make sure to send a school uniform with him/her.
Unlike previous years, we will not partner up Aloha Harvest for their annual Trick or Eat food drive. Instead we will work with their canned food drive in November. More details will be sent at a later time.
Parents are invited to watch the costume parade. However, we ask that you remain in the designated viewing area next to the office. After the parade is completed, and in the interest of student safety and confidentiality, we kindly ask that you do NOT come onto campus to take pictures of students. Participation in the parade is strictly limited to the students and staff members of Keone’ula Elementary School. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Dela Cruz at 307-2100.

On Monday, September 18th, the 6th grade boys and girls volleyball teams competed on the first day of the annual Campbell Complex Volleyball Tournament. This 2 day tournament was created to promote physical activity, good sportsmanship, and positive communication.
Our 6th grade students not only preformed well athletically on the volleyball court, they also carried themselves with respect and responsibility. Congratulations 6th graders, and GO CUBS!!!
Dear Keone'ua Ohana,
As you drive past the fire station on the way to our school, please be on the lookout for the awesome fire safety mural created by the sixth graders in Mrs. Matsuura's class.
It was a long process, but our 6th grade students persevered and did a tremendous job!
The students and staff members of Keone'ula Elementary School applaud the 6th grade students for their patience and hard work. You definitely earned your STRIPES!
A copy of this letter was sent home last week to inform you about an incident that occurred the morning of September 19th in the Ocean Pointe Community. A link for a printable copy of the letter is located below.
At approximately 7:05 AM, a student was walking to school on Kaipalaoa Street when a male driving a black truck pulled up and told the student to come into his truck. The male grabbed the student and attempted to pull the student into the truck. The student was able to get away and reported the incident to both school staff and to parents. The Honolulu Police Department has been notified about this incident.
The safety of your children is of utmost importance to us. We are sending this letter to you as a precaution, and to encourage you to speak to your child regarding measures to stay safe, specifically about “stranger danger.”
As an added precaution, please reinforce with your child the following safety measures:
We appreciate your help as we work together to keep all of our students safe. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at 307-2100.
