Below you will find October’s Lunch menu.

Don’t for­get that today is the last day to “Give Aloha” at Food­land!  Every lit­tle bit helps the school!  We’ll announce the final total after the results have been tal­lied, hope­fully by the mid­dle of next month.

Also, thank you to every­one who signed up for movie night!  We have a larger crowd than antic­i­pated, but we should be able to fit com­fort­ably and snugly in the audi­to­rium.  Please make room for your neigh­bors and if you do bring chairs, please set them up by the walls of the cafe­te­ria so you don’t obstruct the views of the fam­i­lies behind you.  Thank you and if you signed up for Movie Night, we’ll see you on Fri­day night!

Thank you to all the par­ents who have con­tributed to Foodland’s Give Aloha pro­gram so far!  If you still haven’t made your con­tri­bu­tion, you can do so until Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 30 and des­ig­nate Liholiho Ele­men­tary as your school of choice for your dona­tion.  You need your Mai’ka’i card when mak­ing your dona­tion (Max­i­mum $249/card).  Food­land and West­ern Union will match a per­cent­age of all pro­ceeds.  All money donated goes toward the PTA and sup­ports our school, teach­ers, and stu­dents.  Ask for a dupli­cate receipt and sub­mit it along with our Direct Dona­tion flyer to your child’s teacher!  Thank you!

Thank you also to all the stu­dents and par­ents that showed up at the Kona Shave Ice truck yes­ter­day.  We heard that the lines were long and that it was a per­fect day for an ice cold shave ice.  This fundraiser will be repeated some­time next month, please be on the look­out for a flyer in your child’s folder or for a post on the website!

You will also notice that we have October’s newslet­ter in this post.  Thank you Cheryl for your hard work in this month’s issue! Enjoy your week­end and Kinder­garten par­ents, don’t for­get about the Kinder­garten Fam­ily Gath­er­ing tonight!

The Liholiho Laulima PTA is proud to announce that we will be spon­sor­ing a movie night on Fri­day, Oct. 3, 2014! This will be a great way to cel­e­brate the end of the 1st quar­ter of school and kick­off the start of Fall Break!  Due to the size of the cafe­to­rium, the event will be lim­ited to the first 100 stu­dents and imme­di­ate fam­ily mem­bers to respond. You can print out the PDF below and send it in to your child’s teacher or wait for the hard copy to come home in tomorrow’s Thurs­day Folder. The dead­line is Mon­day, Sep. 29th.

We have also included a flyer that details steps in reduc­ing Water Pol­lu­tion as dis­cussed by Ms. Sachi Mat­sushita at Open House night.  Since we are the only state sur­rounded by water, please take the nec­es­sary steps to pre­vent pol­lu­tants from enter­ing our pre­cious water.  Thank you!

It’s another excit­ing new year at Liholiho Ele­men­tary, and we have a new oppor­tu­nity to present to you.  We real­ize that many fam­i­lies are busy and don’t have time to fundraise through­out the year. If you would rather donate directly to the school up front rather than par­tic­i­pate in other fundrais­ers, you can do that here. Mak­ing your dona­tion through Give Aloha is even bet­ter, as Food­land matches a per­cent­age of it.

Monies donated to the PTA goes directly back to the school.  Thank you very much for your con­sid­er­a­tion and please feel free to con­tact us if you should have any questions!

Another flyer that went out was noti­fi­ca­tion that the milk price will be increas­ing on 10/1/2014 from $0.50 to $0.60.   Thank you and have a great weekend!

Please con­sider par­tic­i­pat­ing in this event!  The money (plus an addi­tional per­cent­age matched by Food­land and West­ern Union) comes back to Liholiho for teach­ers’ salaries and school equip­ment!  Thank you!


What is the Give Aloha Program?

Give Aloha is a dona­tion pro­gram that ben­e­fits schools of choice. Dur­ing the month of Sep­tem­ber, when you shop at Food­land you can donate to Liholiho. West­ern Union and Food­land will match part of every donation.

Why make a Give Aloha dona­tion to Liholiho school?

Donate through Give Aloha to Liholiho to retain cur­rent teach­ers, staff, and pro­grams, and pro­vide your child(ren) with good edu­ca­tion and safety. If every Liholiho fam­ily donates $100 (max­i­mum of $249 for each Maika‘i card holder account) in Sep­tem­ber when shop­ping at Food­land, we will be able to raise enough funds in 2014–15 to pay for:

  • Part time teach­ers, which allows for smaller class sizes
  • KIDBIZ 3000 lit­er­acy pro­gram, which has helped raise read­ing test scores at Liholiho
  • Lunch­room Supervisors
  • Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion, and Music pro­grams and teachers

When Can I Donate?

You can donate to Liholiho any time you are shop­ping at Food­land between Sep­tem­ber 1st — 30th, 2014!

How do I participate?

Present your Maika‘i Card at any Food­land check­out or cus­tomer ser­vice desk and tell the cashier that you would like to make a dona­tion (cash, check, charge or debit card) of up to $249 to Liholiho Ele­men­tary School, Orga­ni­za­tion Code #77919. If you don’t have a Maika‘i card, sim­ply give your phone num­ber to the cashier, who will process your dona­tion and arrange to have one pro­vided for you later.

ASK THE CASHIER TO GIVE YOU TWO RECEIPTS that will include the amount you donated to Liholiho School. Keep the orig­i­nal receipt for tax deduc­tion pur­poses and attach the other copy of the receipt to the class dona­tion form. The class dona­tion forms will be sent home on Sep­tem­ber 1st. Your child and your child’s class will get credit for every receipt attached when the form is returned to the home­room teacher.

Am I the only per­son who can make dona­tions on behalf of our family?

No, your rel­a­tives, friends, or neigh­bors can also donate to Liholiho School when they shop at Food­land. They should give you the copy of their receipt, which you can attach to your child’s class dona­tion form and have your child get credit for the donation.
