Calling All Moms!
I'm looking for moms willing to do reviews on my blog about products.  Reviewers do not get paid but they will get to keep the product they review, and if a reviewer has a blog we can send more traffic to it.  Specifically I'm looking for moms who like to write/blog, have babies/toddlers/kids younger than 8-years-old and have time to write 2-3 200-400 word reviews a month.  This is a great way to jump into mommy blogging, network more across the mom blogging community, try cool products for families and have your say about them. If you are interested, please contact me atmoanasaves@gmail.com.

Question of the Week  ?????? We want to hear from parents, and sometimes, it seems like everyone is too busy for a face-to-face meeting.  Come talk on the PTCO blog!!  Each week, we will have a question for each of you to reply to.  For this week, what are some ideas you have seen at other schools that you think might work well at Laie Elementary School?  What new ideas do you have for Laie?  Just click here to put in your ideas.  We want the blog to be a forum for parents to share ideas, make suggestions, and contribute pictures and information.  Go see what others have to say!

IMPACT Award!

Please submit your nomination at the front office!

Playground Equipment
Although the playground equipment on the kindergarten area and on Kanahele Field look completed, we are still waiting for the finishing touches and inspections by both the contractor and the DOE. We cannot open the playground until this is completed. Please bear with the inconvenience for just a while longer. Our students have been very patient with the process, but I am aware children are playing on the new equipment during non-school hours. For the safety of everyone, inform your child(ren) no one should be playing on the equipment until it is officially opened. It would be unfortunate if someone got hurt, or the playground equipment gets damaged before it is even opened for our students. Thank you.    ~ Mr. Ho

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Message from Mr. Ho
The La`ie School Community Council (LSCC) is required to hold two community meetings every school year to present school data and seek input in the development of the academic and financial plan. Last school year, the LSCC presented school data and sought parent/guardian input through a survey. 

Last week, the youngest/only child attending La`ie Elementary took home a parent/guardian survey presenting Hawai`i State Assessment scores and some questions seeking input from our parents/guardians. Your information is helpful and important to our school's direction and with the development of the 2011-12 Academic and Financial Plan. Please take some time to review the data and answer the questions provided. Please return completed surveys to your child's homeroom teacher by Wednesday, November 10. Thank you. ~ Mr. Ho 

Let's Do Math A New Way!!!
Our students solve math problems in such weird ways nowadays.
Come see what it's all about.
Bonus: A whiteboard & expo marker you can take home!!!
Who: Parents and Guardians of 3rd, 4th, 5th 6th graders
When: Tuesday, November 9th  
Time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Where: Laie Elementary P10 NEW LOCATION
Other: It’s okay to bring your little ones too. There will be a babysitter.

Walk-A-Thon Results!
Money is still trickling in, but as of now, we have made over $8,000 with our 30 minute Walk-A-Thon!  That is $3,000 more than last year!! Thanks to all those who participated in any way.  This Friday, we will announce individual and class winners.

Recess DADS
We are still looking for parents to come in and help organize games for kids at recess.  We want to extend the opportunity to all parents.  This might be a good opportunity for a DAD to spend lunch time with the kids once a week.  Activities could include relay games, capture the flag, go-water, what time is it Mr. Wolf? .  . . it's up to you!  Pass this email along.  Recess for the older kids is from 12:00 - 12:45 p.m. Come at 11:45 to collect equipment. Email Joanie Ford at 561-8352 or legendofthejojo@gmail.com, if you are interested.


Bank for Education $100,000 gift to Hawaii school-- What could Laie Elementary do with $100,000?  Let's find out!  Between now and Nov. 26, 2010,American Savings Bank is holding its "Bank for Education" competition.  Go to any branch location (there's one at Foodland), and open a free checkingaccount.  FREE!  You can open as many as you'd like.  Once you get your debit card, you must have five transactions on the account for your account to count for our school.  Buy five packs of gum in separate transactions, and you're set!!!  You may close the account for no charge after 6 months.  This is something small parents could do to make A LOT OF MONEY for our school.  We got 4th place last year.  This year, 1st - 3rd places get cash awards.  Let's go for it!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: Help your child think of someone at school who has made a difference to the "togetherness" of the school.  Nominate that person for an IMPACT award in the front office.

PROJECTS FOR THE SCHOOL: There are several projects that the school would like to have done.  These make great eagle projects, but would also be good for businesses, families, or youth groups in the area.  If you would like to help, please contact Mr. Ho for some suggested projects, and submit a one-page proposal at the main office.
