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.

1. Spirit Week – This event starts on MONDAY!  From Sep. 30 – Oct. 4, students will be able to show their Liholiho spirit and pride by dressing up and participating each day of the week!

2. CPR/AED Class – This class is being held at Waialae School on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 6:30PM – 8:00PM and you will be able to learn practice HANDS-ONLY CPR and the AED machine.
