Makaha Elementary

Principal's Message

Dear Makaha Ohana, 

I just wanted to take the time to wish all of you a Happy New Year.  I feel extremely fortunate to be the principal of a school with such wonderful children, a motivated and dedicated staff, and supportive and involved parents.  This is my fourth Principal appointment, in my thirty years of service, with the State of Hawaii Department of Education.  I want you to know that your child's education is my top priority!  My first two months here have been great, and I now know what it means to be “Makaha Strong”.  Our faculty and staff are highly committed to providing the most rewarding education possible and making the process of learning an enjoyable experience. We look forward to working together with you to make your child’s educational experience a positive one.


Wade Araki, Principal
