CRAFT FAIR

Thank you to all those to who helped make our 2016-17 Craft Fair a success! 

The annual Craft Fair is not only a Noelani tradition but a wonderful event for the entire community.  The event also raises funds to support enrichment activities, technology for students and teachers, and facilities improvements.

We look forward to the next Craft Fair in November 2017!

JOG-A-THON


Friday, Feb. 10 2017

Volunteer signups will be available soon. 

Come parents, grandparents, relatives & friends:  Cheer!  Jog along!  Walk along!  Either way, we promise you a fun Friday morning with your children!!  As always, safety is our primary consideration.  Water will be available throughout Jogathon.  If it rains or field conditions are unsafe, we will hold an Exercise-a-thon in the playcourt.

What is Jogathon?
  • The second fundraiser of the school year staged by our Noelani PTA.
  • Students are sponsored by family and friends to jog or walk along a course that winds through the Noelani campus. The course is designed by our P.E. teacher, Mrs. Veronica Lum, and manned by parent-volunteers.

What’s the educational purpose of Jogathon?
  • To help students appreciate the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle.
  • To provide an engaging school-wide learning experience for our students and to enhance their sense of place within the Noelani Ohana.

Incentive Program
The incentive program was designed to encourage our Noelani Ohana to come together to reach our goal of $25,000 in sponsorships:
  • Family donations of $50 or more will receive a Noelani printed memorabilia.
  • Donations of $100 or more will receive a Noelani printed memorabilia, recognition as a “Platinum Club” member by posting your name on the cafeteria bulletin board, and your name will be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 2 grand prizes (at least $100 value each). 
Let’s all come together to reach our goal!!  We thank you all for your support. 

Where does Jogathon money go?
All money goes to the PTA General Fund.  The PTA supports projects such as:
  • the PE and music programs, including teachers’ salaries
  • the computer education program, including I-Book Cart equipment and servicing
  • school projects (e.g. fence line border)
  • staff development and discretionary requests
  • student support requests (e.g. drama program, 4th Grade Big Island trip)
  • emergency equipment (e.g. automated external defibrillator (AED) machine)
Jogathon T-shirts
A few days before Jogathon, students will come home with their free Jogathon t-shirt.  Please encourage your joggers to wear their special Noelani Jogathon t-shirt on Jogathon day

A special thank you to all of the parent volunteers who work to make our Jogathon such a success year after year. We couldn't do it without you!

MAY FAIR

May Fair 2016-17 is on Friday, May 12!

May Fair is a wonderful tradition at Noelani, featuring beautiful performances, exciting activities for all ages, food, fun, laughter, and moments that create memories for a lifetime, so mark your calendars and request May 12th off.

Start your day at the Haku Lei Stand (located just outside of the office) to make sure you get one of the most beautiful haku leis or wristlets you'll ever see. The Haku Stand opens at 7:00am. But be sure to get there early, they sell very quickly.

Then check out the delectable goodies at the Bake Shop, Bentos, and Produce booths, which will stay open until sold out. Be sure to also check out the Silent Auction items in the café. The highlight of the day are always the May Day Student Performances, which will take place from 9:30-10:30. We will continue our celebration with Keiki Games, Activities, and a student Variety Show - all set to begin at 12:00-12:30 and end at 2:00. 

This special event is possible because of the donations received and the many volunteers that sign up and pitch in each year.

Below are the volunteer and donation links from last school year.  Please check back for updated volunteer links for 2016-17 later in the school year.

Please signup to VOLUNTEER:  We need volunteers for various shifts and jobs starting 5/9 up to the day of the event 5/13.

Please signup to VOLUNTEER for your classroom GAME. (This is different than the volunteering above): 

Please signup to DONATE:  (We need various donations: baked goods, drinks, greenery for Haku, and large fishing coolers and pop-up tents the day of event)
