Dear Nimitz Families,

I hope you're all excited and ready for the start of another fantastic school year at Nimitz Elementary! I'm thrilled to welcome each and every one of you to our school community.

My dedication to Nimitz Elementary is strong, and my passion for working with our students and families drives me every day. I am committed to ensuring that every student, has equal opportunities, support, and guidance. I focus on not only achieving academic excellence but also on creating a place where every child feels valued, heard, and empowered. My work is always centered on equity and partnership, striving to build a Nimitz community where we all grow and succeed together.

With over 26 years of experience as both a parent and an educator, I understand the many needs and challenges our students and families face during these important elementary years.

The smiles, curiosity, and determination of our students bring me joy and purpose every day at Nimitz Elementary. As we start this new school year, please know that my door is always open. I'm here to listen, support, and work together with all Nimitz families to build a community based on equity, respect, and understanding.

Working with our amazing Nimitz staff, we're creating a school where Nimitz students can shine academically and grow into caring, responsible individuals.

Here's to a year filled with growth, teamwork, and shared success!

Warm regards,
Celestina Pakel
Principal, Nimitz Elementary
