  • WE REMEMBER

    This past Saturday was the 20th anniversary of the tragedy that happened on 9/11. In remembrance of September 11, 2001 (before any of current student body was born), we took the time to honor those who died that day. 
    • Friday the 10th, we recognized Patriot Day starting with our Upper school Students raising the flag and observing a moment of silence.  Click here or the video link above to view.
    • Our 10th grade History class created a 9/11 tribute video . Please be advised that some of the video clips are graphic in nature from images of that day. You may want to preview first before deciding if your child is old enough to view. View Tribute Video
    • Our 3rd grade class created drawings in honor of 9/11 heroes and used the drawings to form the Twin Towers. View picture below.
    This day, also reminds us to appreciate first responders who are dedicated to saving lives-- then and now. Mahalo to all the first responders in our community for doing what you to do keep us safe. 
  • Hanalani Happenings - Week of September 6

    Please, We Need Everyone's Help:
    Traffic Flow:  We are still experiencing traffic back up in the mornings, mainly from 7:30 - 7:40 a.m.  Here are a few suggestions to help alleviate the traffic.  
    • Upper School Students (including drivers):  Please arrive to school by 7:30a.m.  This will allow you to do your health check and get to your homeroom on time.
    • Elementary Students:  Please arrive at your designated grade level times.  Have your green shield ready to show and be ready to exit your vehicle.
    • When exiting Anania Drive there is a back up of vehicles waiting to turn left onto Lanikuhana Ave.  Here are 2 alternative routes that could help alleviate the traffic.  (1)Turn right onto Lanikuhana to Meheula Pkwy to use the H2 on ramp.  (2) Go straight up Anania Dr. to Meheula Pkwy and then turn right towards H2 or left towards Kam Hwy.
      Either route will help us move traffic out of our neighborhood quicker.  Thank you for your help.
    • Please be courteous to our neighbors that are waiting to get in/out of their driveways or waiting to turn out of side streets.  Please let them in.  We want to maintain great relations with our neighbors.

  • Jostens' Representatives Present Yearbook Award

    Representatives from Jostens presented our Gold Level National Yearbook Program of Excellence award from last school year (SY 2020-21) to a few of our yearbook editors and Mr. Morisawa. They were here on Friday, August 20, for a yearbook workshop.

    This was the second year in a row that our yearbook staff receive this award! We are one of only 127 schools across the nation and world to receive Gold Level and one of only two Hawaii Schools. Jostens works with over 15,000 schools.
