ALL VISITORS AND PARENTS must report to the office to sign in for a school visitor pass. This is to ensure safety, provide accountability, support students, and respect learning.


For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.

Giving Thanks

Aloha Everyone,
As we officially enter the season of giving thanks...I am thankful for your continued cooperation and support. I am but a member of our TEAM...a proud member of our TEAM. I am thankful for the hard work and dedication that you put in each and every day. I am thankful for everyone stepping up to the plate to take on additional responsibilities and for our resilience in overcoming challenges that were placed in front of us.

I am thankful for other schools, who have requested tours of our campus. Other schools and even complex areas have visited our campus to learn about our "suSTEAMability" efforts...so the work that you are doing on a daily basis is being recognized by others. Our theme of "full STEAM ahead" has lead us to an exciting point in time. We begin the process of reflecting on what we are doing as a school (CNA) and where we would like to be (CNA), and how we will get there (academic plan).

I am thankful for our community partnerships and registered volunteers. We currently have 59 community partnerships and a total of 59 registered volunteers (a total of 109 volunteer opportunities). These partnerships and volunteers assist in moving us forward with our "suSTEAMability" efforts.

May you reflect on what you are thankful for, spend time with family and friends, and give more than you receive.
