Aikane O Nu‘uanu would like to welcome all new and returning students and families back to school!
What is Aikane O Nu‘uanu?
Aikane O Nu‘uanu was founded in 1975 and is your parent-teacher organization. Our mission is to foster a spirit of ‘ohana between students, their families, staff and our community so that together, we can make every Nu‘uanu Elementary School student’s pursuit of lifelong learning a reality.
Through membership dues and fundraising efforts, we help to enrich our student’s learning environment by purchasing necessary items such as air conditioning, new classroom furniture, a new playground, TVs, computers and supplies, and providing field trip subsidies, just to name a few things. We also foster a spirit of ‘ohana and aim to create life-long memories by hosting family-friendly events such as Family Fun Night to bring our community together.
For ‘Aikane O Nu‘uanu to be effective and truly representative of the school, it’s essential to have family involvement from as many families as possible. Many working parents feel that they can’t be included because they can’t attend every meeting but there are endless possibilities in ways you can help.
1. Volunteer. We always need parent-family support. We have several committees that need help such as Family Fun Night, fundraising, events, and much more. If you can give 5 hours of your time a month or only 30 minutes, we’ll take it. If you’re interested in learning more, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Become a member. Join ‘Aikane O Nu‘uanu today by filling out the membership form in your student’s welcome back to school packet, via SignUpGenius, or online at nuuanuschool.org.
3. Donate and/or Fundraise. All your donations goes back to directly support the school.
The only way we can be successful and accomplish our mission is with the help of YOU!
