You still have time today to bring in your gently used Halloween costumes to swap.  Yesterday was the first drop off and today is the final day of drop off between 2:30P – 4:00P in the library.  One costume brought in will equal one costume you can take home.

The swap will take place on Thursday, 10/16/2014 from 3:00P – 4:30P in the library.

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!

It’s another exciting new year at Liholiho Elementary, and we have a new opportunity to present to you.  We realize that many families are busy and don’t have time to fundraise throughout the year. If you would rather donate directly to the school up front rather than participate in other fundraisers, you can do that here. Making your donation through Give Aloha is even better, as Foodland matches a percentage of it.

Monies donated to the PTA goes directly back to the school.  Thank you very much for your consideration and please feel free to contact us if you should have any questions!

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) –
Schools Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi announced today that all public schools on Oahu and Kauai will be closed Friday in anticipation of Hurricane Iselle, which is expected to impact the island as a tropical storm.

It was previously announced that all schools on the Big Island and Maui County will be closed both Thursday and Friday.

At 8 a.m. Thursday, the most recent storm update available, Hurricane Iselle was located about 255 miles east-southeast of Hilo and was moving west-northwest at 17 miles per hour. It had maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour, weakened slightly from the 2 a.m. forecast, with higher gusts of up to 98 miles per hour. Iselle remains a Category 1 hurricane.

On the forecast track, the center of Iselle is expected to pass near the center of the Big Island near Cape Kumukahi on Thursday night, then pass just south of the smaller islands Friday. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Iselle is expected to be at tropical storm strength as it passes near or over the Big Island.

Good morning!

Yesterday’s race conditions were wet and windy, however, that didn’t deter the 12 Team Liholiho runners from participating in the Hapalua Race (half-marathon).

Thankfully at the end of the race, warm malasadas and cool shave ice were a welcome treat!  We would like to thank the runners below for participating in this year’s event and for raising over $700 for the Liholiho Laulima PTA! Yay!

Aloha All,

 I wanted to personally reach out to all who helped and thank you all for making this a successful event for the PTA, our school and most of all the environment.  Thank you very much!
I wanted to personally reach out a thanks to Scott Yoshihara, Arlene Liao, Iris Salazar and (The best fun fair co-chair in the world) Lawrence So for taking on the responsibility of pulling off this beach clean up.  I appreciate all your hard work.
Thank you also to all of the families who took time from their busy Saturday morning to come out to the beach and help us with the clean up effort.
I will be working with Matson to close out the event and they have asked for some pictures to recap the event.  If any of you took pictures this weekend, please feel free to send them on to me.  DISCLAIMER – I don’t know what Matson will use them for so if you would not like to send them on, no problem.
Thanks again for your hard work!
