Please see below for the July Newsletter and Welcome Back to School Event Flyer. (They should also be arriving in your mailbox.)
Have a good day!
Amazon Prime Day 2016, the “Biggest Amazon Event Ever”, is coming up on Tuesday July 12! This is a great opportunity to shop while supporting Liholiho Laulima.
Whenever you purchase items at Amazon (whether it’s Prime Day or not), please make it a habit of going to smile.amazon.com. It’s the same thing as shopping at the regular Amazon site, but 0.5% of your purchase will benefit Liholiho Laulima (as long as you select Liholiho Laulima as the charity of your choice and the item is eligible for AmazonSmile). For more details about AmazonSmile please go to http://smile.amazon.com/gp/aw/ch/about.
More on Prime Day: There will be over 100,000 deals exclusively for Prime members, across nearly all departments and product categories. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a 30 day Prime free trial (but don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want to keep it).
School is just around the corner! Can you believe it? If you can’t find your school supply list, look no further! Here are electronic copies of the Grades 1 thru 5 and Kindergarten lists.
For Grades 1 thru 5 parents:
You should be receiving a summer newsletter in the mail which will include information on the July 27 Welcome Back event. For Grades 1 & 2 it will be at 5:30 pm. Grades 3-5 will be at 6:15 pm. At the event you will be able to sign up for various after school programs, meet teachers, visit classrooms, and more. Details will be in the newsletter, so please be on the lookout for it in the mail!
For Kindergarten parents:
Welcome! Upon registering you should have received a packet with lots of important information including screening dates, parent orientation, and child orientation. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
I would like to take this time to thank each and every one of you for being such loyal subscribers to the PTA site and that you care enough about your child and the school to continue your subscription to this PTA blog. I’m also very grateful to have been given an opportunity to be your PTA webmaster for the past 4 years. Although some of my posts have not been as prompt as I would have liked and I’ve made more than my fair share of grammatical and spelling errors, thank you all for your patience and understanding.
However, I won’t be going too far though because I’ll be moving over to the Fundraising Committee next school year to assist with the upcoming Liholiho Fun Fair for the next school year. Yes, you heard right! Fun Fair will be back in November 2016 and we will definitely need Parent Volunteers! So stay tuned for further info next school year!
So who will take over as webmaster you ask? We are fortunate enough to have an eager and enthusiastic parent, Lori Ikeda-Ng, take over my position. I’m certain that with her qualifications she will do a much better job than I did! Along with Lori, we have Grant Giventer taking over the December General Membership Meeting duties and Vince and Shaleah Soliven running the Special Activities committee! Vince was also a former Liholiho student! I have no doubts that they will all do an incredible job on the PTA board! Thank you in advance for all your hard work!
Once again, thank you again and please have a fun and safe summer!
If you weren’t able to attend the ArtBEFOREDark event on May 12, 2016, you are in luck. We have a photo gallery of all the beautiful artwork that our students painstakingly drew, colored, painted, and designed. Thank you to Mrs. Chang, Mrs. Ueki, and the student docents for hosting the fabulous event complete with drinks and pupus!

Liholiho Elementary School May Day Program
Wednesday, May 18, 2016
8:45 – 10:00AM
Featuring our Liholiho Keikis performing on our field!
*Limited parking is available on our field. Car pooling is recommended.
Please kokua by NOT blocking the 9th Ave. & Maunaloa corner. This will enable the city bus to turn the corner.
If you plan to take your child home after the May Day Program, please sign out your child in his or her classroom.
Be aware that if a child leaves school before 10:45AM, he/she will be marked absent for the day.
On Thursday, May 12, the Liholiho Laulima PTA will be selling water bottles as a fundraiser to help raise money for the school. The water bottles are very similar to the Hydroflasks you see other people toting around and it keeps the water ice cold!
We have a limited amount of water bottles with the Liholiho mascot embossed on the surface (as shown below). Each water bottle sells for $35 (cash or checks only) and you may purchase it prior to or during the May General Membership Meeting in the back of the cafetorium from 5:00PM – 6:20PM.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, thank you!
