August 2019 Eagle Newsletter

Aloha Nimitz ‘Ohana,
Welcome to the opening of what promises to be a wonderful school year! It was nice to see
so many families during our Meet and Greet Day on August 1, 2019. The faculty and staff
put in many hours to prepare for the start of the new school year, and I want to thank them
for their hard work and dedication to our students.
This year, we will continue to implement our statewide reading program called Reading
Wonders and our math program called Go Math!, which are both aligned with our Common
Core State Standards as well as AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination)
strategies to help our students be organized, be self-directed learners, and be critical
thinkers.
Our schoolwide positive behavior intervention system is in its second year. Our goal is to
practice the following four values so we can “SOAR” to success:
*Self-Discipline
*Open Mind
*Attitude
*Respect
The behavior matrix was shared at our Welcome Back Assembly with all of our students,
and further discussion took place in each classroom. The matrix has been posted around the
school campus and in classrooms as a helpful reminder of our behavior expectations.
Students who work hard in displaying these four values can earn Positive Behavior
Recognition (PBR) certificates. After they have received two certificates, students may
redeem them for a spirit stick (Self-Discipline, Open Mind, Attitude, Respect).
We are introducing i-Ready this school year, replacing STAR Reading/Early Literacy as
our universal screener, progress monitoring tool, and data analysis. A parent letter will be
sent home shortly providing more information about the program.
We would like to welcome a couple of new faces to Nimitz, Mr. Tony Pablo, Grade 2
General Education teacher, Ms. Lorie Solis, Grade 5 General Education teacher, Ms.
Heather Frech, Grade 6 General Education teacher, and Ms. Kerry Strong, Grades 3/4
Special Education teacher (Long-term sub). They come to us with a wealth of experience,
and we are excited to have them as part of our school community.
Our calendar of events offer many opportunities for you to become actively involved at
Nimitz, including our Fall Festival, Winter Program, Jingle Bell Fun Run, Reading with
Santa, Kindergarten 100 Day Celebration, book fairs and grade level activities, just to name
a few.
Please join us as in striving to make this school year a rewarding, enriching, and successful
one as we continue our journey to “Kulia i ka Nu’u” (Rise to the Summit).

Mahalo,
Marcy Kagami, Principal

May 2019 Eagle Newsletter

Aloha Nimitz ‘Ohana,

May is an important month that honors, remembers, and recognizes all military personnel culminating with Memorial Day. We have tremendous respect for all who serve and have served this great country of ours. On behalf of the Nimitz ‘Ohana, we extend a heartfelt “Mahalo” for your service and sacrifice.

We also want to recognize our wonderful teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6th – May 10th). They have worked tirelessly throughout the school year. We are thankful for their hard work and dedication to our students.

The annual Volunteer Breakfast will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 8:00 am in the school cafeteria. We believe parent involvement is vital to our school’s success, and we want to take the time to show our appreciation for our parent volunteers. Thanks to our PCNC, Norma Sosa, for planning this special event.

Please join us for our Aloha Festival on Friday, May 24, 2019 at
8:30 am in front of the outdoor stage. This year’s theme is
“He Makana O Nā Mele Nani - A Gift of Beautiful Songs and Dances.” Come early to get your seats. This is an event that you wouldn’t want to miss!

In closing, there are just a few weeks left to what has been an amazing school year. Thank you for your continuous support with your child(ren)’s academic achievement. We will miss those of you who are leaving Nimitz and hope you have a smooth transition to your new school.

Have a fun and safe summer!

Mahalo,
Marcy Kagami Principal
