PTCO Bulletin 2-2-11

No items


New Meal Prices
Effective March 1, 2011, new meal prices for student breakfast and lunch will be charged in the cafeteria. A detailed listing with the breakdown of what the new prices are was sent in the bulletin. If you would like a copy please email laiebulletin@gmail.com

As part of PTCO's mission to support teachers we are teaming up with friends and family of Eliza Elkington, 1st grade teacher at Laie, to help publicize a benefit bake sale to support Eliza's sister. Her sister tragically lost her husband and few weeks ago and being pregnant and sick she is currently without means of financial support.  Eliza's friends and students invite everyone to donate baked-goods or come to the sale!  Sometimes the support we give each other outside of school is just as important as the support we give at school.   

If you would like to donate baked-goods, email Nisi Uyehara at uyeharav@gmail.comThe bake sale will be held Friday February 4th at the Crismon home, across the street from the school on Iosepa St. near the cross walk.  Set-up will be at 1:45, and the bake sale will start at 2:10 p.m.

The school is asking for parent volunteers to help during Drug Free Week. On Wednesday, Feb. 16, we need parents to help with a jump-rope activity. Volunteers are needed during lunch hour from 11:15 to 12:45 (or some portion of that time). If you can come please email Emily Bradshaw at bradshaw.e@gmail.com
