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 July 28, 2016.  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 also be incorporating strategies we learned from attending the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Summer Institute this July.  An AVID Parent Night will be scheduled in the near future.  More details will be sent home with your child.

On another note, we had our accreditation visitation in April 2016.  We were informed this summer that Nimitz Elementary received Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Six-Year Accreditation Status with a Mid-cycle One-day visit through June 30, 2022.  This recognition is a result of the efforts of our school community – teachers, staff, students, parents, and community partners.  Thank you to everyone for their commitment to student achievement and learning.  

I look forward to meeting the new members of our community and connecting with returning families throughout the school year.  I encourage our Nimitz ‘Ohana to get to know each other
so you can build new friendships and support each other as the need arises.

Our calendar of events offer 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.   

I encourage you to join us as we strive 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
