Aloha Mokapu Elementary! Thank you for visiting our site and your interest in our school. My name is Paloma Almanza and it is a privilege to be the new Principal of Mokapu Elementary School. I have served the Windward Oahu community as an educator for close to two decades as an elementary teacher, Vice Principal, and interim Principal. Mokapu Elementary is very unique and unlike most schools in Hawaii. As a school serving Military Families, our students come from all over the nation at various grades and with different learning experiences. As the proud sister of a Navy Commander and his amazingly resilient family, I am very familiar with and understand the unique experiences and educational needs of the military student population. Likewise, the faculty at Mokapu are Highly Qualified and extremely dedicated to the children we serve. Our job is to take each child, assess their academic level, and then push him or her as far as we can based on National Standards. It is evident that all stakeholders of Mokapu Elementary are invested in providing the best possible learning experiences for our students. We are very aware that our students are only with us a short time and will return to a mainland or international school. As such, we look beyond the expectations of Hawaii. Our students will leave Mokapu prepared and ready with the foundational skills to be successful at any future school. Together, our greatest initiative will be to continue to work together to not only provide differentiated and engaging learning opportunities, but to prepare all students for responsible global citizenship. I look forward to fostering relationships with all of you and working with our faculty to continue providing opportunities for growth for all students. I encourage you to visit Mokapu or contact us with any questions about our incredible school. The Hawaiian Islands are an amazing place and we are fortunate to call it home. Thank you again, please browse the rest of our website for more information. Live M-O-K-A-P-U, Spread A-L-O-H-A! LiveAloha, Principal Almanza
