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!
Marcy Kagami Principal
Based on the ACS WASC mid-cycle review, it has been determined that Admiral Chester W. Nimitz School (K - 6) meets the ACS WASC criteria for accreditation. This accreditation status is based on all of the information provided by the school, including the school’s progress report, and the satisfactory completion of the on-site mid-cycle accreditation visit.
Admiral Chester W. Nimitz School’s accreditation is now reaffirmed through the end of the six- year cycle ending in June 2022.
April is the “Month of the Military Child”, a time to honor and celebrate all military-connected children and youth. We have planned various activities in the upcoming weeks as a way of showing support for our families and recognizing our students for their strength, sacrifices, and continued resilience. We want to thank our PCNC, Norma Sosa, for organizing each activity. Please refer to the informational flyer that was sent home at the beginning of this week.
There was a big turnout for our McTeacher Night on Thursday, March 28, 2019. Many of our families came by and enjoyed a meal at McDonald’s and had fun in the play area. We appreciate our awesome PCNC, Norma Sosa, who took care of all the details and made sure everything ran smoothly.
On Wednesday, April 3, 2019, the First graders performed at the annual Radford Complex Music Festival.

They had a great time and did a wonderful job representing Nimitz Elementary.
