Transition Center

Daniel K. Inouye Elementary School's Transition Center was founded in 2005 to help incoming families transition smoothly and successfully.  Since that time, our coordinators have welcomed thousands of students into our ʻohana (family).
We have also farewelled students on their last day with lei and a moving kit.
In 2017 we partnered with the national organization Anchored 4 Life.  They support our program by training our student greeters. They provide welcome and moving kits and much more. The club is open to students in 4th & 5th grade and they are nominated by their teachers. It is a peer to peer club to connect youth while building transition and resiliency skills. These students learn leadership skills and utilize them in welcoming new students and farewelling those on their last day.
The Anchored4Life Club is the place where connections happen. It is a peer-to-peer club to connect youth whi
The mission of the Transition Center is to be your information resource during this important time.  Welcome folders are presented to families as they complete the enrollment process. This folder contains useful information about ongoing school programs and community resources.  
On your child's first day, they will be greeted with a lei in the office by our student greeters.  The greeters will escort your child to their new classroom!

Tours of the school are available for families at 3pm daily.  If your registration paperwork is being processed then you can come anytime.  This gives your family the opportunity to have a complete tour of the campus at your own pace.  Ask all your questions and know better what to expect on your first day.  
If you have already started school here without a tour, you can still attend.
