Dear Family and Friends, the 2021-22 school year has started and as we welcome back statudents to school, we also invite you to join our PTO. If you wish to join our once a month virtual meetings via Zoom and provide your feedback, have a few laughs and partake in some comradery, please email Michelle Lagunoy-Doi, PTO Communications Secretary, for the Zoom link at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
The KMS PTO would like to congratulate and send our best wishes to the graduating 8th grade class! We are so proud of you and how much you have accomplished during your time at Kaimuki Middle! Congratulations and good luck to you with your next step in your education!
We would also like to wish our current 6th and 7th graders well as the summer begins! Have a good time with friends, make those special memories and enjoy the extended time off!
Thank you to the KMS teachers, staff, parents, and community members for another fantastic year! Although it was challenging, everyone did their best to adapt to the current situation. Here’s to next school year where we are all hoping for a return to normal!
Thank you again for supporting the school and our PTO! Have a great summer!
We hope that this post finds you and your family well. Given the current circumstances of the COVID situation, we would like to offer order refunds to any families that may have changed their mind. Please reach out to us on the Contact Us page, provide us with your order number and your refund request and we will process the refund as soon as possible.
To those who are eagerly awaiting their orders, we are also looking into shipping/delivering the orders out to families based upon your billing address since school will not be in session until May (at the earliest). If you would like your items to be shipped/delivered elsewhere, please Contact Us and provide us with your new shipping address.
We still have a number of shirts and hoodies available and if you are interested in ordering, please visit our store.
Please take care, stay safe, and let’s flatten the curve.
Dear Kaimuki Middle School Ohana,
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread in the US, many educational institutions are cancelling extracurricular activities to prevent the spread of the virus. As of this letter, Hawaii has confirmed two cases of the COVID-19 infection on Oahu and KMS PTO is taking precautionary health measures to protect our Ohana and the community, by cancelling the Taste of Kaimuki Middle School event scheduled for Friday, March 27. Our decision to cancel this event was made after careful evaluation of the current COVID-19 situation and actions that would need to be in place to reduce the risk of transmission. Based on these considerations, we recognized that we would not be able to provide an event that guaranteed the safety of our Ohana, community members and food vendors, entertainers and volunteers.
We would like to send a big MAHALO to the KMS families and staff who were so generous and enthusiastic about answering the call to help with donations of ideas, time, beverages, equipment, supplies and funds to make this event a success. As we continue to monitor the situation, please know that we are continuously brainstorming ways to make up for this event by providing other opportunities to celebrate the great things about KMS. With regards to the drinks that were donated, we would like to let you know they will be used to benefit the students at KMS. However, if you would prefer that we return your donation, please contact us at kmspto.org/contact-us, to make arrangements to pick-up from the school. To those who have generously loaned us your coolers, please stop by the front office between 7:30AM – 4:00PM during spring break to pick up your item.
In celebration of KMS’s 80th anniversary, we created a commemorative shirt and hoodie that will be available to the KMS Ohana and community. You may purchase these items at the KMS PTO Store, kmspto.org/store. First distribution of shirts and hoodies is expected on Friday, March 27. We are happy to let you know that the shirts and hoodies have been approved to wear to school on any day of the week, but only have limited quantities, so order yours today! The profits from the sales of the shirts and hoodies will be used to support programs and events at KMS.
We thank you for your support and understanding. Please feel free to contact us via email at kmspto.org/contact-us, if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions.
Be safe and stay well!
Mahalo for your time and support,
KMS PTO Board
