Waiau Elementary School

Literacy Support » Home


We are committed to the success of our students. We believe that support and funding in the earlier years of elementary education is critical to acquiring foundational skills. Literacy Support is offered to targeted students in the area of reading in grades K-2 in both our English and Hawaiian Language Immersion (HLI) classrooms. In addition, Literacy Support helps our English 3rd graders and HLI students in 5th and 6th grades. The goal of our dedicated Literacy Support Team is to help students become confident readers and writers.
