Aloha Hickam Families,
We hope you are having a restful and relaxing summer. To our families new to the islands, Aloha and Welcome to Hickam! With school less than three weeks away (students' first day is Tuesday, August 8th), we have some important information to share. Listed below is more detailed information about the Back to School Fair, bus transportation, and school uniforms.
This parent newsletter is created on Smore and is one of many communication platforms our school uses to engage our families and disseminate important information. You may also receive information through School Messenger (usually in the form of a letter), and online platforms (i.e., Class Dojo and Google Classroom),
Yet, the hub for communication is our school's website, www.hickam.k12.hi.us. This website is updated frequently and is the most convenient way to communicate with the school. Please click the Contact Us button at the bottom of the website or call the office at (808) 307-4600 if you have any questions. Otherwise, we hope you enjoy what is left of summer, and we cannot wait to see you at our Back to School Fair. Take care!
