Hawaiian’s School-wide Expectations

* Safety Smart    * Ownership    * Achieve   * Respect

It is my honor to join Hawaiian Elementary, Home of the Eagles, to serve as the new principal of this dynamic school community.  I am truly excited to welcome all our students, families, and community partners to the 2016-2017 school year! We are looking forward to an outstanding year of learning and a positive and meaningful collaboration.  

Our dedicated and experienced staff is ready to serve our Hawaiian community and accomplish our mission:  Every Child Succeeding. We hold our students to high academic and behavior expectations and envision our school as a center of learning for a community of learners.  It is through our collaboration and teamwork that we will continue to improve instruction, professional practices, and student achievement.   

We promote a safe and nurturing environment that allows our students to thrive and take risks as we assist them in realizing their full potential as responsible and productive members of our community and the world. Hawaiian Elementary is preparing our students to be 21st Century learners who will be successful in a global society:  Critical Thinking, Problem solving, Collaboration, Creativity and Innovation are at the core of our instruction.


We wholeheartedly appreciate and acknowledge the vital role our families and community partners play to ensure our students’ success and we know their support will continue to strengthen our school.

What is a Magnet School?

A Magnet School is one that is chosen by its district and the federal government to receive extra funding, equipment, teachers, and training to "specialize" in a chosen field or two. All of the 16 Magnet Schools in ABCUSD have been awarded over $20 million federal monies to develop and sustain theme-based programs of excellence.
