Parent Involvement


Nimitz ES Parent Community Networking

Nimitz Elementary School is always open to working with its families and communities. One important person to contact if you are interested in volunteering or helping out at school events is our Parent Community Networking Coordinator (PCNC) ERIKA RODGERS. You can email her at ERODGERS@nimitzeagle.k12.hi.us


Parent Involvment is a very important part of student success and as we transition into a new normal, we welcome any assistance you are able to give. We have parent volunteer forms that may be picked up from the front office if you would like to get involved. However, due to the pandemic, Governer David Y. Ige issued an Emergency Proclamation Related to Covid-19. To comply, and in order to volunteer on campus, the "Volunteer Attestation Statement" form must also be completed. This form is also located in our school's front office.
