            ALOHA FROM OUR TEAM!
Principal Ronnie Victor

Aloha Kalihi Waena Ohana,
This year marks my seventh year of serving, proudly, as Kalihi Waena's principal.  Our theme for the year is "Igniting a Passion for Learning".   Our faculty and staff members are working diligently to meet ALL of our students' needs. Together, we are implementing a school wide response to intervention system.  This allows us to work on SMART goals and gives us the opportunity to work on the skills that our students need in order to be successful in their studies.  I look forward to working with you in helping our students to "Rise Above It!"    

Vice Principal Daniel Larkin
I have been working in Kalihi for 10 years, first at Kalakaua Middle School for 8 years, now at Kalihi Waena for 2.  I have a passion for the students here and am thrilled to be back for another year at KWES.  I am currently working towards helping our students jump into the 21st century through integrating technology in every classroom.  We are rapidly approaching having a computer or device for every student in the school!  I believe that together with our ohana and community our students will be ready for what the future has for us.  My motto for our students is "I am a Lion.  I am the Future!" and I truly believe that our students are going to be better prepared to be our future leaders than ever before!
