Good morn­ing!

Just a friend­ly reminder that the dead­line for the Fun Fair 2014 T-shirt design con­test is on Fri­day, Octo­ber 4th! Next week Fri­day!

Have your child cre­ate and design their own Fun Fair themed t-shirt that will be worn by stu­dents and adults before, dur­ing, and after the school’s Fun Fair!


  • Stu­dents will use an 8.5” x 11” paper and may ONLY use a black mark­er to sub­mit their t-shirt design. They may sketch it out with a pen­cil first and then trace over it with a black mark­er.
  • Full name, grade lev­el, and teacher must be writ­ten on the back of sub­mis­sion in pen­cil and draw­ing should be sub­mit­ted to Liholi­ho PTA Fun Fair.
  • The win­ner will receive a free t-shirt with their very own design on it!
  • Liholi­ho friends and fam­i­lies will be able to pre-order their own cus­tom designed Fun Fair 2014 shirts some­time after the con­test but before the Fun Fair!

Hel­lo every­one!

We are cur­rent­ly in the process of putting togeth­er a great Fun Fair for the stu­dents, fam­i­lies, and com­mu­ni­ty!  So far it has been going well, how­ev­er, we do need help in ask­ing if any­one is a DJ or has a sound sys­tem that can be used for the fair.  The music play­ing and announce­ments made will pro­vide a more fes­tive and fun atmos­phere on Feb. 22, 2014!

If you are or do know of some­one who can help us, please con­tact us here.  Thank you for your time and have a great night!
