Thank you very much!

I would like to take this time to thank each and every one of you for being such loy­al sub­scribers to the PTA site and that you care enough about your child and the school to con­tin­ue your sub­scrip­tion to this PTA blog. I’m also very grate­ful to have been giv­en an oppor­tu­ni­ty to be your PTA web­mas­ter for the past 4 years. Although some of my posts have not been as prompt as I would have liked and I’ve made more than my fair share of gram­mat­i­cal and spelling errors, thank you all for your patience and under­stand­ing.

How­ev­er, I won’t be going too far though because I’ll be mov­ing over to the Fundrais­ing Com­mit­tee next school year to assist with the upcom­ing Liholi­ho Fun Fair for the next school year. Yes, you heard right! Fun Fair will be back in Novem­ber 2016 and we will def­i­nite­ly need Par­ent Vol­un­teers! So stay tuned for fur­ther info next school year!

So who will take over as web­mas­ter you ask? We are for­tu­nate enough to have an eager and enthu­si­as­tic par­ent, Lori Ike­da-Ng, take over my posi­tion. I’m cer­tain that with her qual­i­fi­ca­tions she will do a much bet­ter job than I did! Along with Lori, we have Grant Given­ter tak­ing over the Decem­ber Gen­er­al Mem­ber­ship Meet­ing duties and Vince and Shaleah Soliv­en run­ning the Spe­cial Activ­i­ties com­mit­tee! Vince was also a for­mer Liholi­ho stu­dent! I have no doubts that they will all do an incred­i­ble job on the PTA board!  Thank you in advance for all your hard work!

Once again, thank you again and please have a fun and safe sum­mer!
