Aloha Waimalu Ohana:
It’s hard to believe that we are in the last month of the school year. It has certainly been an exciting year, and we are looking to finish strong!
April was an exciting month. Our May Day program was a celebration of the diverse cultures of our Waimalu Ohana. It is always so exciting to see all of our students be stars for a day. I would like to acknowledge Mrs. Doreen Tabe and Kumu Jaymee Nugal for coordinating our May Day efforts. I would also like to thank all of our teachers and staff for their hard work in putting on a great show.
The month of May will be a busy one as well. One exciting thing we are looking forward to is the start of our Heat Abatement project. Waimalu Elementary is one of 33 schools that will receive heat abatement equipment. Twenty of our classrooms will receive new split air conditioning systems. This will help to provide an environment that is much more conducive to learning. Construction will be starting in the middle of this month, and we hope to be done by the time school starts in August.
I hope that you and your child(ren) have had a great year that was filled with lots fun and learning. It has been my pleasure working with all of you this year, and if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to stop by and see me. My door is always open.
Glen Iwamoto, Principal
