Principal's Message

May 28, 2020
Aloha Nanakuli Elementary Ohana,
What a bittersweet end to this school year-Summer will be exciting with a time to relax and reflect-however, we know that we will miss the faces that we have grown accustomed to seeing day after day.
THANK YOU to our students. Each of you worked hard to reach the goals you set out for yourself. Being a learner in today's world presents challenges, innovation and creativity, however, you have come far and please celebrate all your accomplishments. Perhaps we should thank YOU for what YOU teach us everyday! YOU inspire us all!!!
THANK YOU to our grade 6 students. As you transition out into the ranks of middle/intermediate school-be proud of the foundations set forth as a Nanakuli Golden Sunshine! We wish you the very best and continue to spread the aloha, resilience, culture and compassion among all those you meet.
THANK YOU to our committed and compassionate staff and faculty. I am grateful and count my blessing daily to have a positive team that places students first in all we do. You lead by heart and actions to ensure that the well-being of everystudent is counted. Going the extra mile to reach our families and to help each other seems to be the expectation  rather than the exception.
THANK YOU to all our parents for sharing the gift of your children with us. You have all been an inspiration! We appreciate your patience, understanding and flexibility during the last few months. We wish you a safe and healthy summer and hopefully look forward to "seeing" you in August.
In closing, we would like to wish our Aloha and Mahalo to staff and faculty who will be leaving us.  We wish them well in their new journey....

Take care, stay healthy and safe-
