New Makawao School uniform and ordering procedures

We are excited to have a new school uniform this year. However, there are new DOE procedures that prohibit us from selling them on our campus. In order to get uniforms, you can either order online at and select Makawao Elementary and order, or go to the Automatic Tshirt Printing Store at the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center (next to Sprint) and order there. Please see attached flyer for store hours and terms of payment. Click here for order form

Your child may still wear their older uniforms to school. We have limited supplies left of our older shirt if you would like to purchase those in our office.

Our 4th graders created this amazing stop-motion animation with the guidance of Shelley Toon Lindberg and their awesome teachers. A big mahalo to Gail Ainsworth for sharing her wealth of knowledge about Makawao. Video also can be found on
