Mr. Wayne Hayami, president of Chuck E. Cheese pizza and a proud Liholiho alumni, was generous enough to include an additional donation of $437 which brought our fundraising total to $1,300!  Below you will find a letter we received from Mr. Hayami.

Thank you Mr. Hayami and to all the parents, guardians, teachers, and staff for making this event so successful!

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.

For your information, we’ve collected 135.5 lbs of caps and lids from Jan. – Aug. 2012!  Thank you for protecting our precious environment!

– Mrs. Johnson

Over a hundred school and community volunteers came down yesterday to participate in our very first Liholiho ‘Aina Garden Party! Liholiho community contributors worked interdependently to build six 4′ x 12’ raised garden beds, a green compost structure, and painted beautiful signs to label garden beds for each grade level. Altogether, we moved 7,900 pounds of soil! Now we are ready to start planting!

Special thanks to community volunteers from Kokua Hawaii Foundation, Hands in Helping Out (HiHO), 12th Ave. Grill, Hula Grill Waikiki, and UH Manoa Master Gardeners Program who took time out of their three-day weekend to help with Liholiho’s garden program.

ATTENTION: If you are interested in volunteering with our ‘Aina in Schools program to teach and inspire environmental stewardship or childhood nutrition please contact Ms. Shimizu, ‘Aina Team Coordinator, in the Contact Us page using the subject line “Aina in the Schools”.
