Parent assistance is requested for this fun and fitness filled event on Friday, Oct. 17! If you have some time, please come down and cheer on your child and all the Liholiho students! More information can be found in the attached flyer.
Thank you to all the parents who have contributed to Foodland’s Give Aloha program so far! If you still haven’t made your contribution, you can do so until Tuesday, September 30 and designate Liholiho Elementary as your school of choice for your donation. You need your Mai’ka’i card when making your donation (Maximum $249/card). Foodland and Western Union will match a percentage of all proceeds. All money donated goes toward the PTA and supports our school, teachers, and students. Ask for a duplicate receipt and submit it along with our Direct Donation flyer to your child’s teacher! Thank you!
Thank you also to all the students and parents that showed up at the Kona Shave Ice truck yesterday. We heard that the lines were long and that it was a perfect day for an ice cold shave ice. This fundraiser will be repeated sometime next month, please be on the lookout for a flyer in your child’s folder or for a post on the website!
You will also notice that we have October’s newsletter in this post. Thank you Cheryl for your hard work in this month’s issue! Enjoy your weekend and Kindergarten parents, don’t forget about the Kindergarten Family Gathering tonight!
The Liholiho Laulima PTA is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring a movie night on Friday, Oct. 3, 2014! This will be a great way to celebrate the end of the 1st quarter of school and kickoff the start of Fall Break! Due to the size of the cafetorium, the event will be limited to the first 100 students and immediate family members to respond. You can print out the PDF below and send it in to your child’s teacher or wait for the hard copy to come home in tomorrow’s Thursday Folder. The deadline is Monday, Sep. 29th.
We have also included a flyer that details steps in reducing Water Pollution as discussed by Ms. Sachi Matsushita at Open House night. Since we are the only state surrounded by water, please take the necessary steps to prevent pollutants from entering our precious water. Thank you!
Attached to this post you will find some flyers regarding next week’s Open House, the T-shirt design contest, and the PTA membership flyer. You should have received these forms in your child’s folder yesterday. Have a good weekend!
