2. Raise mon­ey for the event! Col­lect at least $30, either through the Crow­drise web­site in your name or phys­i­cal­ly col­lect­ing from fam­i­lies and friends and turn­ing it in to your child’s teacher in an enve­lope marked “Hapalua”!
3. Con­tact when you have reached the $30 goal and you will receive your dis­count code.

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!

Only 2 days remain before the Liholi­ho PTA Fun Fair and we hope you are as excit­ed as we are!

Thank you very much to all the fam­i­lies who have sub­mit­ted their vol­un­teer forms. You should be receiv­ing vol­un­teer infor­ma­tion in today’s or tomorrow’s fold­er. Park­ing, check-in time, and oth­er impor­tant infor­ma­tion will be includ­ed in the form. If you haven’t received it by tomor­row or have ques­tions, please feel free to con­tact us.

We would also like to thank all the fam­i­lies that have dropped off drinks for the fair so far! The sup­port has been phe­nom­e­nal and with­out your sup­port, this fair for the stu­dents, fam­i­lies, and com­mu­ni­ty would not be suc­cess­ful! Thank you very much!

Iris Strem­ick and I (Lawrence) will once again be at the park­ing bays tomor­row morn­ing to work the drink drop off. Thank you!

Also, Derek and some Liholi­ho stu­dents will be on air tomor­row morn­ing on TV. Be sure to catch them around 5:45AM on KITV and 6:50AM on KHON!!

Thank you to all the par­ents and stu­dents who dropped off bot­tled water and juice dona­tion at the park­ing bays this morn­ing!  It was great see­ing every­one and we appre­ci­ate the mon­ey and time spent to help make this fair fun for every­one and help fund our school improve­ments!

Derek and I (Lawrence) will be at the park­ing bays again tomor­row morn­ing between the hours of 7:00A — 7:45A.  If you can­not decide between donat­ing juice, soda, or water, we are look­ing for some more juice and soda dona­tions!  But don’t get us wrong, we’d still love your bot­tled water dona­tions and will not turn you away!

If you aren’t able to make it tomor­row, we’ll be out in the bays on Fri­day morn­ing as well dur­ing the same time!

Thank you very much!
