Interim Rector's Ramblings

Good news from Holy Nativity School! This week, God has blessed our school with two wonderful individuals to fill critical gaps in its staffing. And, thanks be to God, our awesome faculty remains with us for the year ahead as do our terrific students.

Jeanne Wilks will become Holy Nativity's Interim Head of School beginning July 16, 2019. She will serve for the 2019-2020 school year.

Jeanne has been an educator for the past 17 years. She holds an MEd in Private School Leadership from the University of Hawai'i and has previously been a board member and board president of another independent school on Oahu. For the past six years, Jeanne served the families and faculty of Trinity Christian School in Kailua as Makai Campus Principal (grades 4 th -12 th ). She cares deeply about children's learning, and leading and developing a solid team of educators. Jeanne is looking forward to the coming year at Holy Nativity School and hopes to meet each and every one of the HNS ohana. Her email address, available as of July 16, will be jwilks@holynativityschool.org.

Rhona Slingerland has joined the school staff as our new business manager. Her email address is rslingerland@holynativityschool.org. She began work today. She brings great experience to the position, having previously filled the same position at St. Francis High School.

I've thoroughly enjoyed working with the School's staff, faculty and students for my brief time as the acting interim head of school and relish the prospect of continuing those relationships as the parish's interim rector. Exciting things are happening at the little school in the valley and at the Church of the Holy Nativity. I'm honored to be part of it.

God bless,
Fr. Clifford
