Hello again from the Nominations Committee!
By now you should have received a blue Nominations form in your child’s Thursday folder. Please take a moment of your time to look at the form (both front and back) and consider nominating someone who you think would help our PTA and school grow and flourish!
Unfortunately, we haven’t received any nominations at this time, but we are hopeful that many of you will return the flyer to us with potential candidates!
Serving on the PTA board can be a rich and rewarding experience. You learn so much more about the school, faculty, and staff and the decisions that they must face every school year. There is also the support of fellow PTA parents should you have any questions and/or concerns. But most of all, your child will be proud knowing that you were their “PTA parent” during their elementary years!
Please nominate yourself or someone you know for a position! Thank you!
We will be having our March PTA General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, March 11, 2015. The PTA will talk about fundraising, nominations, and other issues that need to be addressed. After the PTA activities have been covered, the Kindergarteners will be performing for the crowd. Bentos will be available to those who pre-order using the form below.
There will also be a Book Fair in the library BEFORE and AFTER the meeting.
Get ready to lace up those running shoes because the Keiki Run is here! The 2015 Keiki Great Aloha Run on February 14, 2015 is a great way for the whole family to spend an active and healthy morning together. The race is a safe, 2-mile run around the Neal Blaisdell Center and McKinley High School that is open to students in grades K-5 along with their family and friends. There will be many race day events including the Great Aloha Run Fitness Expo, pre and post-race festivities, and demonstrations of school fitness activities. Students and families can walk, run, or stroll at their own pace.
This is a great opportunity to also help raise money for our PE program here at Liholiho! For every person registered under Liholiho Elementary School, the Keiki Run will donate $15 per person back to our PE program! Last year we raised enough money to buy new jump ropes, soccer balls, and a stereo system to play music while we exercise during class! This year we plan on buying even more great equipment for our students to use to stay physically active!
To register for this great event, go to https://flpregister.com/125.
After registering online, please fill out the bottom portion of the attached flier and return to your teacher or the school office.
For more information on this event, please see the attached flier or contact us!
