Wellness Works at Kuhio School!
At Prince Jonah Kuhio Elementary School, under the direction and encouragement of our principal Evelyn Hao, a committee was formed to develop a plan to promote health and wellness. Children learn better when they are healthy. Health and wellness is not just the absence of illness, injury or disease, it is a positive condition based on nutrition, exercise and positive attitudes. This condition not only prevents illness and injuries, but promotes a sense of wellness that nurtures learning and healthy living. We are looking at the whole Kuhio community, which includes students, families, teachers and other staff, and our neighbors in the adjacent neighborhoods.

Kuhio School has many great programs:
 Comprehensive Physical Education classes 
 A variety of health promotion and educational activities, including videos created by
and starring our students
 Positive Action ‘word of the week’ messages in bulletin and video broadcasts by students, emphasizing mental and social health 
 Access to community wellness classes such as Zumba, yoga and aerobics 
 Free fruit and vegetable snack program for students 
 Beautiful gardens that remind us of our connection to the earth
