Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana!

Just pass­ing along infor­ma­tion here about a Lego® event / Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gram. This is from Play-Well TEKnolo­gies:

We want­ed to invite you and Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary fam­i­lies to a FREE event where we will be build­ing Hon­olu­lu out of 20,000 LEGO® Bricks. The event is being held on Sat­ur­day, June 3rd from 10 AM — 1 PM at the Hawaii State Pub­lic Library. It is part of the kick-off to the Hawaii State Pub­lic Library’s Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gram. Fam­i­lies will get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to build the City of Hon­olu­lu as they would like to see it.

Here is the link for the event:

Feel free to share this with any­one that you think would be inter­est­ed. We are encour­ag­ing fam­i­lies to reg­is­ter at the link above, so we can ensure we have enough LEGO for every­one. Hope you can make it.

As we close out the school year, we would like to say thank you to fam­i­lies and friends for sup­port­ing the PTA! We appre­ci­ate your help with events such as the Fun Fair and Walk-a-thon. Your gen­er­ous dona­tions helped pay for things such as the sound sys­tem for the cafe­te­ria, a part-time teacher, and cur­ricu­lum for the stu­dents.

Thank you also to teach­ers and staff for teach­ing our kids, sup­port­ing them, and mak­ing them grow into respect­ful, respon­si­ble and safe indi­vid­u­als!

At this time we would also like to thank out­go­ing PTA board mem­bers:
Lawrence So
Staci Yoshi­hara
Dan­i­ca Wong
Vince Soliv­en
Shaleah Soliv­en
Sachi Mat­sushi­ta
Chris Leong
Ali­cia Chang

Thank you very much for your ser­vice! A spe­cial thank you to Lawrence and Staci. Lawrence has served on the board for 7 years, includ­ing suc­cess­ful­ly chair­ing 2 of our most recent Fun Fairs. Staci has been on the board for 5 years. She and her fam­i­ly have gen­er­ous­ly giv­en their time and resources to ben­e­fit our school. We will sure­ly miss them and wish their kids best of luck as they grad­u­ate 5th grade and start the next chap­ter of their edu­ca­tion!

Thank you to PTA board mem­bers who are end­ing their cur­rent term but are vol­un­teer­ing for a new term in a dif­fer­ent role!

And wel­come new PTA board mem­bers Don­ica Kaneshi­ro, Wai Kee Chan, and Mei Chun, who will be team­ing up on Fundrais­ing. Aletha Sut­ton will be the new Hos­pi­tal­i­ty chair. Look­ing for­ward to a fun year ahead!

(If any­one would like to help with future PTA events, please look out for flyers/emails in the upcom­ing school year!)

Have a won­der­ful and safe sum­mer every­one!

Yes­ter­day, an event was held to thank teach­ers, staff and vol­un­teers for their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion through­out the year.

Makua Manu led grades 3 and 4 in a Hawai­ian chant, and also led low­er grade lev­els in a “Liholi­ho Sings to You” per­for­mance. Grade 5 gave a pre­view of their grad­u­a­tion song along with Mr Mag­ne­nat and a stu­dent band.

Teach­ers, staff and vol­un­teers were treat­ed to lunch and ice cream.

Click below to see pic­tures and videos from the event. (Note: The video at the end is of a Kinder­garten stu­dent (Enzo) show­ing off his impres­sive dance moves (along with some 5th grade back­up dancers)! The video didn’t pick up the song very well, so just imag­ine Bruno Mars’ “24K Mag­ic” play­ing in the back­ground!)

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana,

Hope you’re enjoy­ing the last week of school! We have a bunch of pic­tures to share with you. First, here are pic­tures from the ser­vice group field trip which was to Tiki’s Fam­i­ly Fun Cen­ter. Ser­vice groups include JPO’s, JOA’s (Junior Office Assis­tants), Stu­dent Coun­cil, and Peer Medi­a­tors. You will be proud to know that our Liholi­ho stu­dents were com­mend­ed by Tiki’s staff for their out­stand­ing behav­ior! So kudos to our stu­dents!

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana,

As the school year comes to an end, some of you may be think­ing about giv­ing some­thing to your child’s teacher and/or staff. Please remem­ber, it is not nec­es­sary and by no means do any of the employ­ees expect gifts from the stu­dents and fam­i­lies who attend Liholi­ho. How­ev­er, if you feel com­pelled to give some­thing to your child’s teacher and/or staff mem­ber, please remem­ber the fol­low­ing State Ethics Commission’s gift guide­lines:

1. The state’s gift guide­lines pro­vide that the fol­low­ing are accept­able (These guide­lines may not apply for employ­ees whose offi­cial duties include pro­cure­ment):

Gifts of Alo­ha” — mod­est gifts of nom­i­nal val­ue tra­di­tion­al­ly giv­en as part of Hawai­ian cul­ture as a ges­ture of alo­ha or good­will such as a flower lei or a box of cook­ies to share with the office — and oth­er gifts of nom­i­nal val­ue such as small pro­mo­tion­al busi­ness items (e.g. pens with com­pa­ny logo).

Meals and “Food and Drink” types of events val­ued at under $25. This lim­it applies to the whole event.

What does this means is? Please keep your gift val­ue under $25.

Thank you!
