Aloha Nimitz ‘Ohana,
Congratulations to our boys and girls basketball teams who participated in the Radford Complex Tournament at Radford High School on January 19-20, 2017. There were a lot of parents who came out to support our students. I would like to acknowledge our coaches, Mr. Ryan Kam, Ms. Erin Kam, and Mr. Todd Matsumoto for preparing the teams for this event. Thank you to the coaches and players for doing a fine job representing Nimitz.
Starting Tuesday, February 14, 2017, the teachers will begin preparing our 3rd - 6th graders for the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) scheduled for the month of April by administering the Interim Assessments in their classes. The SBA will measure not only what students know but how well they can apply their knowledge in real-world situations. If you are interested in assisting with your child’s preparation, there is an online practice test that can be accessed through a link on the Nimitz website or directly to alohahsap.org/SMARTERBALANCED/students/.
On Thursday, February 9, 2017 our 4th graders will be participating in the Hawaii State Assessment (HSA) for Science. This test is aligned to the 4th grade science Hawaii Content and Performance Standards III (HCPSIII). It is especially important that your child gets a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast the morning of the assessment.
Finally, please join us for McTeacher’s Night coming up on Thursday, February 16, 2017 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at the McDonald’s located at the Moanalua Shopping Center. Hope to see you there!
