"Where Dreams Begin!”
Aloha Parents, Guardians and Friends of the Aiea Elementary Community
Thank you for visiting Aiea Elementary School’s website. We are the home of the Junior Na Ali’i.
My name is James Kau and I am entering the second year of being the proud principal of AES.
It is an honor to be given charge of providing our students with the opportunities and supports to succeed and start the journey to become career, college and citizenship ready.
At Aiea, we all believe that this is "Where Dreams Begin”. We are a TRIBES school that believes in providing a safe, nurturing and supportive environment where all our students can thrive. Our staff continues to work hard to improve their professional knowledge to instill the academic skills and experiences that our students need to be successful. We also believe in providing extra-curricular opportunities to subject our children to new and exciting experiences. By working together, respecting each other and keeping the focus on our Keiki’s safety and success we can all provide a great experience for everyone and continue the tradition of Junior Na Ali’i Pride!
What's Happening at AES
Hurricane Olivia Precautions - September 10, 2018
The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) advises parents and guardians that public school schedules and afterschool programming may be modified across the islands this week as Hurricane Olivia approaches the state.
The National Weather Service expects Hurricane Olivia to bring strong winds, heavy rainfall, and high surf to parts of the state this week. Olivia is forecast to close in on the islands Tuesday and move over portions of the island chain Tuesday night and Wednesday, with Maui and the Big Island experiencing the first impacts.
Assistance League Hawaii Supports Our Students! - August 29, 2018
AES has generously been included in the Operation School Bell program hosted by the Assistance League Hawaii!! ALL currently registered AES students will receive a FREE uniform. The blue forms have been distributed and are due back by August 31st.
"How does a T-shirt or new school clothing bring a school together and create student pride? It happens at this school thanks to the generosity of Assistance League Hawaii. Earlier this year, many students received clothing from our Operation School Bell program. Students with new school clothing often feel better about themselves, and this helps them with confidence, positive behaviors and getting involved with peers and school activities.
Assistance League Hawaii is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization with over 100 members. We proudly support student education at your school by generously providing these valuable programs. We've been transforming the lives of children and adults through community programs across the Hawaiian Islands for over 47 years.
Our services are provided through grants, donations, and revenue earned at our Thrift Shop. We invite you to support us by shopping at our Thrift Shop at 1505 Young Street in Honolulu."

4/13/18 - "Good News" 6th grade Opera
Our 6th graders did AMAZING as they wrote, practiced, sang, and performed their opera! Here's 6th-grader Kylie sharing her experience about the night...
"The 'Good News' Opera was one of my favorite, memorable activity I have done in my life. In 4th grade, I wasn't able to experience what I did now in 6th grade since I came in the middle of the quarter. I realized how much effort it was to put to make the opera a reality and it was fun doing so. I hope I can participate i something like this in the future. :)" - Kylie
3/16/18 - Jump Rope for Heart
Students had so much fun jumping to music. The upper grades jumped on the field while the lower grades jumped on the court. Everyone loved jumping with their classmates. Jump Rope for Heart is really important because it keeps your heart healthy! (written by Lei-Lana A., 6th grade)
3/16/18 - Spring into Spring Family Night
Last night our families set sail towards their family goals! Each family created a family canoe with sails to represent their family name and their goals. Much mahalo to the Pali Momi doctors who sailed with the Hokule'a for teaching us about what it takes to believe in ourselves, take pride in our cultures, be healthy, and work for our goals! Thanks to all those we attended and helped to make it happen! See pics from the event here.
