At today’s WOW assembly, the students and teachers sang and performed to the popular Frozen hit, “Let It Go”. Enjoy and have a safe summer!

And as a bonus, here is a flashback of the flash mob that the teachers performed at the final WOW assembly 2 years ago! Enjoy this as well!

To all the parents, aunties, uncles, grandparents, neighbors, etc.

Thank you very much for helping us make the Liholiho PTA Fun Fair the success that it was on Saturday! Without your help, we could not have pulled this off!

We are fortunate to have such wonderful parents and volunteers assist the us with the setup and clean up of the Fair! All the brains and brawns on this campus would give MENSA and any NFL football team a run for their money! Thank you so much again, we could not have done any of this without you!

We would like to thank the students also for convincing/dragging/forcing their parents to give up their Saturday to come to our Fun Fair! The money you spent at the fair as well as the very generous drink donations will help support Liholiho with equipment upgrades, campus maintenance, and part-time teachers’ salaries!

We’d also like to thank the teachers for their hard work on the games and the staff for their support and assistance behind the scenes! They both played a vital part in this fair!

If you enjoyed this event and would like to assist us with future events, please contact us and join our PTA board! We are looking for people to fill seats that will be vacated at the end of this year.

One last thing is that if you’d like to share pictures of the event, you could post your pictures on Instagram or Facebook (make sure that pictures are made “Public”) and use #LiholihoFunFair!! Since Derek and I were running around, we missed a lot of the smiling and happy faces of families and we would LOVE to see many more pictures!! I’m sure other families would appreciate it as well!


Oh, and here are some links to the view some video footage from KITV (Thank you Lynn N.)!

And I’m so sorry.. one last item.. I promise!  We have created a follow up survey about this year’s Fun Fair and we would appreciate it if you could fill it out and tell us your thoughts about what was great and what wasn’t great.  You can find the survey here:

Many thanks and our deepest gratitude to you all,
Derek and Lawrence

Good morning,

Hi everyone,

Thank you to David and Shayna Kusumoto for putting together a wonderful video showcasing the highlights of the Food and Fitness Day event that was held on October 19.

Enjoy and have a great week!

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. To celebrate Food Day (which is officially October 24), Liholiho is hosting a Food & Fitness Fair for students and their families on Friday, October 19, 2012. The goals were 1) to introduce students to a variety of vegetables and teach parents various ways of preparing them 2) to encourage active lifestyles and fun ways to grow strong and healthy kids and families. It was a great success.
