DANIEL K. INOUYE ELEMENTARY TRANSITION CENTER

Daniel K. Inouye Elementary School's Transition Center was founded in 2005 to help incoming military families transition smoothly and successfully. Since that time, we've welcomed thousands of students into our 'ohana (family). Our mission at the Transition Center is to be your information resource during this important time. We offer daily tours and orientation sessions for you and your child(ren) which include an overview of school policies and procedures, introduction to our passport program, a viewing of our Life at Hale Kula DVD, and a tour of our campus. On your child's first day, he/she is greeted with a lei by our student greeters who will escort your child to their new classroom! So, stop by for a tour and get all of your questions answered - BEFORE your child starts school!

We don't think transition stops on the 2nd day of school.

Education is a quality of life issue. All parents want to feel positive and have confidence in their children's school. For the military parent, especially one who may be deployed, this is an important issue. A transition center which welcomes new students and helps by acclimating them to the culture of their new school can do much to put a parent's mind at ease.

•The Transition Coordinator checks in with new students at 2, 4 & 6 weeks to make sure they are having a successful transition and is always available for questions.

•We have monthly Lunch Bunch lunches on stage in the cafeteria to follow-up with new students in a group setting.

•Our school is home to PSAP - the Primary School Adjustment Program - a twelve-week program to ease student's adjustment.
