Aloha Waimalu Ohana,
I begin this message by asking all of you to join me in saying farewell to Nancy “Sue” Spencer. Many of you know her as “Ms. Sue”, and many of you also know that she has been a part of the Waimalu Ohana for the past 25 years. Sue is officially retiring from the Department of Education on December 31, 2017. We will all miss her, and know that she will miss the students, families, and staff here at Waimalu. We all wish her well as she begins the next chapter of her life.
The month of December will be filled with class and school activities. Most classes will be having holiday parties, as well as other activities to celebrate the season. Although this is a fun and exciting time at our school, please work with your children to stay focused on school. We understand that there are some distractions to deal with, and we try our best to be patient during this time.
Our 3rd Annual Warrior Dash will be held on Wednesday, December 20, 2017. The Warrior Dash (formerly “Waimalu Elementary Fun Run”) has become the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) primary fundraiser. Not only does the Warrior Dash help to provide our students with opportunities outside the classroom (field trips, etc.), but it is also an event that brings the students, their families, the staff and community together. We hope that all of our students will participate this year.
Please have a safe and happy holiday season.
Glen Iwamoto, Principal
