Aloha Nimitz ‘Ohana,
Congratulations to all of our students in Grades 3-6, who participated in the annual Radford Complex Speech Festival on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at Aliamanu Middle School. The students did a great job with their presentations. We are so proud of you! A special thanks to Mrs. Darci Muromoto, Mrs. Jan Shota, and Mrs. Jessica Osborne for taking the lead in coordinating the Speech Festival, along with the rest of our teachers from Grades 3-6 who helped prepare our students for this wonderful event.
There was a big turnout for our McTeacher’s Night on Thursday, February 16, 2017. Many of our families came, enjoyed a meal at McDonald’s, and had fun in the play area. We appreciate our awesome PCNC, Becky Roberts, who took care of all the details and made sure everything ran smoothly.
We want to thank you parents for your support of Achieve3000 by ensuring your child(ren) in Grades 2-6 complete at least one article per week at home. According to the most current Achieve3000 report, 82% of our students are using Achieve3000 outside of school hours. Research on adolescent literacy suggests that the amount of reading students do after-school hours is an accurate predicator of their in-school academic achievement.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) testing window for Grades 3-6 will be from Monday, April 10 – Thursday, April 13, 2017 and Monday, April 24 – Friday, April 28, 2017. More information will be sent home with your child(ren).
As we come to the end of 3rd Quarter, I want to thank you for your participation and support in our many school activities. Have a fun and safe Spring Break. We will see you back on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
