THANK YOU!  – A big mahalo to all the families who attended Pauoa Camp/Movie Night as well as to the generous families who donated items to make these events a complete success. We also appreciate all the volunteers who assisted with the concession and supervision:  Voyager Church, YMCA, and the Girl Scouts. The weather held up, the children had a blast, families spent quality time together, friendships were formed, and funds were generated to benefit our students. Thank you to the Friends of Pauoa parent group for organizing this wonderful event.


NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON – We are proud to announce Pauoa Elementary is a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School! Our outstanding academic achievement in reading and math has led to this prestigious recognition. Congratulations to all for your support and dedication to academic excellence.


ATTENDANCE REMINDERS – We are working to reduce our students’ chronic absenteeism (Ten or more absences per school year). Please do your best to schedule off campus appointments during non school hours. Trips should be taken during school holidays rather than on school days. Numerous studies show a direct correlation between consistent attendance and academic achievement.


Pauoa Elementary honors students with perfect attendance every quarter.


If your child will be absent, please call the school office at 587-4500 by 8:30 am. Students arriving on campus after 8:00 am must come to the office for a tardy slip. We ask parents to support the school by reinforcing consistent attendance and punctuality.


LOST AND FOUND – A number of lost items, such as jackets and water bottles, are in the Lost and Found bin in the office. Writing your child’s name on all personal items can prevent belongings from ending up in the bin.


OCTOBER NEWSLETTER – The Pauoa Newsletter will be distributed to families by the end of this week. Look for it in your child’s backpack or login to the Pauoa Elementary website.
