Principal's Message


Welcome to Queen Kaahumanu Elementary School’s (QKS) website! At QKS, our school community (teachers, staff, families, and community partners) is committed in working collaboratively together to provide our students with a plethora of well rounded educational experiences and opportunities so that every child can achieve and succeed in school. When students leave QKS, we want them to be proud of all their accomplishments and feel prepared for middle school, high school, college, career, and life, and become productive, contributing citizens in our fast-paced and ever changing society.

While at QKS, we encourage students to strive for academic excellence and always do their very best. In and out of school, we want our students to confidently demonstrate the six (6) General Learner Outcomes (GLOs) and the (3) three behavioral expectations: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Caring and Kind. At QKS, we are proud to have the HEART (Here Everyday And Right On Time) Attendance Program to encourage students to attend school regularly. Also unique to our school, we have Words of Wisdom (WOW) and Dolphins Acts of Kindness to promote a positive school climate.

The faculty and staff at QKS are highly committed and dedicated in providing a rich learning environment for all our students. We are also committed in partnering and collaborating with our community partners and families to provide high quality educational experiences and opportunities for our students. Thank you for your continued assistance, flexibility, understanding, and support throughout the school year. Looking forward to a wonderful and successful school year!

Warmest regards,

C. Yun-Kim
