Thank You!


As the school year come to a close, we would like to say thank you to all Liholi­ho fam­i­lies and friends for sup­port­ing the PTA! We great­ly appre­ci­ate the help and sup­port that you’ve giv­en this year. Your gen­er­ous dona­tions helped pay for things such as water fil­ters in the class­rooms, a part-time teacher, and stu­dent activ­i­ties.

Also, a big maha­lo to the teach­ers and staff at Liholi­ho for help­ing our chil­dren grow into respect­ful, respon­si­ble, and safe indi­vid­u­als as well as for sup­port­ing the PTA and cre­at­ing a wel­com­ing envi­ron­ment for all of us.

At this time we would also like to thank out­go­ing PTA board mem­bers:

Paul Mur­phy
Mei Chun
Grant Given­ter
Don­ica Kaneshi­ro
Evi Miyasa­ki
Shel­by Oza­ki
Aletha Sut­ton
Lori Ike­da-Ng

A spe­cial thank you to long-time PTA mem­ber Shel­by Oza­ki for her many years of ser­vice, with her most recent role being Trea­sur­er. She’s been a fix­ture at pret­ty much all the PTA events. We’ll miss her infec­tious enthu­si­asm, invalu­able advice, and awe­some pic­ture-tak­ing skills!

We wel­come new PTA board mem­bers:

May General Membership Meeting Pictures

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana,

Here are pic­tures from the May Gen­er­al Mem­ber­ship Meet­ing which was held on May 15, 2018. The sec­ond graders did an awe­some job in their per­for­mance of Aesop’s Fables Deluxe. Great singing, sto­ry­telling and danc­ing! They real­ly enjoyed them­selves up there and we enjoyed watch­ing them!

While we wait­ed for the show to begin, stu­dents enjoyed pos­ing in front of the sun­set scenery for some sum­mer­time pho­tos. Then the PTA board updat­ed every­one on PTA busi­ness, includ­ing fundrais­ing, bud­get, and nom­i­na­tions.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Abi­gail, win­ner of a fish­ing pole set donat­ed by McCul­ly Bicy­cle and Sport­ing Goods.

A big maha­lo to teach­ers, staff, and par­ent vol­un­teers!

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana,

Hope your week­end is off to a good start! We have a bunch of pho­tos to share with you. Sor­ry this is a bit late!

Here are a few pic­tures from May Day which was held on May 4, 2018. The theme was “Pupukahi I Holo­mua” (Unite to Move For­ward). The stu­dents per­formed var­i­ous num­bers rang­ing from the preschool­ers’ cute “Logo Te Pate” dance, to the 5th graders impres­sive Kame­hame­ha Waltz. They all did so well and were a joy to watch!

Maha­lo to all who con­tributed to mak­ing our May Day pro­gram pos­si­ble:
Mrs. Small, Mr. Oide, Kumu Lehua, Cus­to­di­al Staff, Par­ent Vol­un­teers, Liholi­ho Stu­dents, Fac­ul­ty, and Staff.
Thank you to Mira­sol Panoke, PTA Spe­cial Activ­i­ties Chair for her hard work and for doing an amaz­ing job!
