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

Dur­ing Sep­tem­ber, Maika‘i cus­tomers are invit­ed to make a dona­tion of up to $249 (per per­son, per orga­ni­za­tion) at check­out. Food­land match­es a por­tion of each dona­tion. This year, Food­land and the West­ern Union Foun­da­tion will match each dona­tion up to a total of $350,000 for all orga­ni­za­tions com­bined.

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!

Liholi­ho Food Day & Fit­ness Fair from David Kusumo­to on Vimeo.

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.
