Dur­ing the week­end run­ning from Fri. Nov. 1 to Sun. Nov. 3, Ward Cen­ters will be hav­ing their annu­al “Fes­ti­val of Giv­ing”!  For only $10, you can pur­chase a 3-Day Sav­ings Pass­port that will give you big dis­counts at stores and restau­rants in Ward Ware­house and Ward Cen­ter.  And what’s even bet­ter is that 100% of the funds raised, we get to keep!

So order one for your­self, oth­er fam­i­ly mem­bers, friends, and neigh­bors!  Attached you will find an order form that will be sent home in your child’s Thurs­day fold­er and also a copy of LAST year’s brochure.  The brochure will give you a gen­er­al idea of the dis­counts that are being offered (it should be rel­a­tive­ly sim­i­lar) and when we receive the 2013 brochure, we’ll be sure to update this page!

EDIT: The lat­est 2013 mer­chant and dis­count brochure below has been updat­ed!

Good morn­ing!

Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary School is col­lect­ing the plas­tic cov­ers from water bot­tles, sports drinks and soda con­tain­ers. Those plas­tic bot­tle caps are often times thrown away and they end up in our ocean. Birds bring them back to their nests and feed them to their young. The plas­tic caps also wash up on our shores and break down into tiny pieces of plas­tic and they pol­lute our beau­ti­ful shores.

Accept­ed are caps and lids with the sym­bol 2 (HDPE), 4 (LDPE) or 5 (PP). These include caps from drinks, sham­poo, food prod­ucts, deter­gent, med­i­cine, sup­ple-ments, spray cans, tooth­paste and cof­fee cans.

Not accept­ed are met­al, Sty­ro­foam or clear lid cov­ers from drink­ing cups, pumps or sprayers, and any caps that are dirty.

Please rinse them out and bring them to Liholi­ho and we will be hap­py to recy­cle them. Please don’t throw them away. You can send them in with your child and label it: “To: Mrs. John­son” or place them in my mail­box in the school office.

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!

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!
