Ho'okena Elementary

​​​​​About this school

At Ho'okena Elementary, students learn strategies they are expected to be able to apply as critical readers and mathematical thinkers, as well as effective writers. Intervention programs in reading and math are also provided to support students in their learning.

Students are also expected to express and self-assess what it means to be self directed learners, community contributors, complex thinkers, quality producers, effective communications, and ethical users of technology.

Parents are valued as partners and play an active role in their children’s learning by communicating through notebooks, supporting the value of reading by monitoring their child’s progress in meeting Million Word Reading Campaign goals, and attending various parent activities throughout the year.

The School Community Council and the Parent Teacher Organization collaborate with the administration and staff to further the vision and mission of Ho'okena Elementary.
