Principal's Message

Dear Aloha Community,


In 2022, Aloha Academy welcomed Dr. Paul M. Delgado to the leadership role at this elementary school site. Dr. Delgado is embarking on his second year at Aloha Academy and shares more about what he envisions taking place over the next few years as he leads the way and impacts change:


As the new principal of our esteemed institution, I am humbled and honored to have completed my first year at Aloha. It has been a year of learning, growth, and collaboration. I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to each one of you for your unwavering support and dedication towards our shared goal of providing a quality education to our students.

Over the past year, I have had the privilege of getting to know our school community, observing the potential of our students, witnessing the strengths of our  teachers, and discovering the areas of opportunity throughout. I firmly believe that together, we have the power to transform the culture and climate of our school, and I am excited to share my vision and plans for our future.

In effort to align our work to our district wide goals that are grounded in literacy, social-emotional learning, and school site safety, my focus will be on establishing and/or fine-tuning the necessary systems required to effectively impact change and improve academics for all students. While test scores are not the sole measure of success, they do reflect the effectiveness of our instructional practices and the level of engagement among our students. To achieve this, I am committed to finding ways to bring powerful professional development opportunities to our teachers. Strengthening their capacity for designing effective instruction is key to ensuring that every student receives a high-quality education tailored to their individual needs and learning styles.


Furthermore, I recognize the importance of strong relationships within our school community. Therefore, I intend to strengthen our approaches to relationship building. By fostering positive connections between students, teachers, parents, and staff, we can create an environment where everyone feels valued, supported, and empowered to succeed.

Additionally, I believe in the power of personalized education. Each student is unique, with their own strengths, challenges, and aspirations. To address diverse student needs, I plan to support the efficient implementation of our new tutoring models. By offering unique tutoring programs in literacy and in math, we can provide targeted support to students who require additional assistance, enabling them to thrive academically and holistically.


As we embark on this exciting journey together, I want to assure you that everyone’s input and support are invaluable. I encourage open communication and invite each stakeholder to actively participate in shaping our school's future. Together, we can make Aloha Academy a school that celebrates diversity, builds community, fosters growth, and achieves excellence. Thank you once again for your continued support. I am confident that with our collective efforts, we will create a positive and nurturing environment that prepares our students for a successful future.
