Habilitat- Christmas Tree and Wreath Fundraiser

Thank you so much for your assistance with the Regal Fundraiser. The Regal Fundraiser is complete so make sure to turn in your unsold tickets and money immediately. The pick-up date for the Regal Fundraiser will be October 29th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

 As of today, we will begin selling Christmas Trees and Wreaths, which is sponsored by Habilitat. Many of you will be purchasing these items in the coming months. Therefore, we thought it would be mutually beneficial to offer these items for purchase. We do not expect any student to sell items outside of their immediate family. If you do wish to participate please see attached flyer. If you do not wish to participate simply dispose of the envelope and flyer.

 The selling period for the Christmas Trees and Wreaths will be from October 4 to October 21. Habilitat must order the items from the mainland, and they will be available for pick-up on December 3rd. The pick-up locations are Kapolei High, Kalaheo High, Waimalu Elementary, Central Middle, Mililani Waena Elementary, and Koko Head Elementary.

 The fundraiser directly benefits your child in the classroom in a variety of ways. For school year 16-17, we will be establishing classroom libraries for each homeroom. The classroom libraries will consist of leveled-readers and include fiction and non-fiction texts. Providing a variety of texts at differing reading abilities is vital to the literacy development of each student. We hope to create students who are life-long lovers of reading and classroom libraries assist us with that goal. Additionally, we will be providing instructional support to each grade-level. The instructional support is provided in unique ways, which are determined by the individual grade-levels. These opportunities may not be possible without the fundraiser.

 Thank you for your understanding and participation! We see this as a great opportunity to support the community as well as offer items, which will be purchased anyways.
