News & Announcements

August 2018 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 Thursday, August 2, 2018. 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, as well as, Go Math!, which are both aligned with our Common Core State Standards. The school will be incorporating AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) strategies to help our students learn to write, inquire, collaborate, organize, and read (WICOR).

We’re excited about our schoolwide positive behavior intervention system starting this school year. Our goal is to practice the following four values so that we can “SOAR” to success:
*Self-discipline (Managing impulses)
*Open mind (Flexible thinking, Empathy)
*Attitude (Growth mindset, Positive approach, Personal responsibility)
*Respect (Authority, Campus, Your peers, Yourself)

The behavior matrix was introduced at our Welcome Back Assembly to 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 visual reminder of our behavior expectations.

We would like to welcome a couple of new faces to Nimitz Elementary. Mrs. Carey DeBeaux is a Grade 4 General Education teacher, and Mrs. Shannon Wellbaum is a Grades 3/4 Special Education teacher. 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 offers many opportunities for you to be actively involved at Nimitz, such as our Parent-Teacher Conferences, Fall Festival, Book Fairs, Winter Program, Jingle Bell Fun Run, and grade level activities, just to name a few.

Please join us 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

Public Schools Start Online Lunch Payment

Hawaii's public schools are launching a new online lunch payment system starting Monday, 05/07/2018. The state Department of Education is launching EZ-SchoolPay, which allows users to manage and pay for students' meal accounts online and through a mobile app available for iPhones, iPads and Android devices. The DOE negotiated a $0.13 convenience fee to pay online. Parents still have the option of paying for school lunches by cash or check at no charge.
