On Sat­ur­day, March 3rd, our stu­dents and their fam­i­lies vol­un­teered their time to help clean up Oneu­la Beach Park. Due to their efforts, the Liholi­ho Lauli­ma will earn a $1000 dona­tion from Mat­son. It was a beau­ti­ful, cool morn­ing and since we were joined by anoth­er school, we fin­ished in just over an hour! Many of the stu­dents brought, not only their par­ents, but also their old­er sib­lings, grand­par­ents, aunts and uncles!

Thank you to these stu­dents and their fam­i­lies! They did an AMAZING JOB!

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Lauli­ma,

If you are free for a cou­ple of hours on Sat­ur­day morn­ing (March 3 from 8am to 10am), please join us in a beach cleanup at Oneu­la Beach Park (aka Hau Bush).

Rea­sons to come:

1. It will help our envi­ron­ment. Trash on our beach­es is harm­ful to our ocean friends. Marine ani­mals can mis­take trash for food or become entan­gled in them. A lit­tered beach is also an eye­sore.

2. It can be a teach­ing moment to kids — to help them be aware of the impact of lit­ter in our com­mu­ni­ties and the impor­tance of recy­cling and reduc­ing waste.

3. You can con­nect with oth­er Liholi­ho fam­i­lies. We don’t often have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get to know one anoth­er.

4. You can feel good about it. Stud­ies have shown that vol­un­teer­ing can help improve mood and health. :)

5. Make a dif­fer­ence. You may feel like one per­son can­not make a dif­fer­ence, but if every­one felt that way, imag­ine what the world would be like!

Sign-up by fill­ing out the online form:

You must also sign a waiv­er which we will have avail­able at the clean-up site.

Direc­tions to Oneu­la Beach Park:

What to bring: cov­ered shoes, sun­screen, bottle/flask with water, trash grab­bers, fish­ing nets to sift rub­bish from the sand, and a smile! Gloves and trash bags will be pro­vid­ed.
Don’t for­get to wear your Liholi­ho School T-shirts.
Par­ents will be respon­si­ble for super­vi­sion of their chil­dren.
