Dream, Believe, Achieve




Welcome to the school year 2019-2020 at Makakilo Elementary. I hope you had an exciting and enriching summer.  My name is Danielle Himalaya and it is my honor to serve our school community as the Interim Principal. There are a lot of exciting enhancements on campus this year. Two of the biggest changes include moving the school towards becoming a 1:1 iPad environment and the multiple construction projects that will make our campus more accessible for all who come here.  


Our vision is to be a caring community of learners that promotes life-long learning and success. To do that, our daily mission is to provide a positive, safe, nurturing, and enriching environment that will enable and encourage our students to develop to their fullest potential. In the end, by the time our students move on to middle school, they should have a solid foundation that includes the attitude, knowledge, and skills to be college, career, and community ready.


Should you have any questions and/or suggestions, please know that my door is always open for you to come in and “talk story”.  I value our partnership. Thank you in advance for your support in helping us develop our kids.
