Commmunity Yard Sale

Is everyone excited for Spring Break next week? I'm sure some of us will be taking vacation, maybe a staycation? Some of us may take the time to do some spring cleaning. If that's the case, please set aside any gently used items for our Community Yard Sale on March 31! If you have so much stuff that you would like your own space to sell your items, just let us know. The fee for a space is $50. We will be accepting donations the day before, Friday, March 30 from 1-4pm. If you need to donate items before then, please contact Claire Roper ( We need some volunteers to help us set up the day before and to help run the yard sale on Saturday. Please visit the signup genius site below to volunteer!

If you take a walk near the school garden, you'll see some new trees planted by the Garden Club this weekend. There are some between the garden and the compost piles as well as the starting of an "orchard" on the hillside to the left of the garden. We now have Cacao, Calamansi and Lemon trees! Thank you Garden Club volunteers for beautifying our school!

Emily is participating in the Trailblaze Challenge benefiting Make-A-Wish Hawaii, a 20-mile trek on Oahu Windward side. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. A wish come true empowers them to fight harder against their illness and improves the quality of life for them and their family. Emily is taking on this extreme endeavor to be a part of something bigger than herself. It gives Emily the strength and courage to know that her actions are contributing to a such a worthy cause. Making a donation is easy and secure by clicking on the "Donate" button. Any amount is greatly appreciated! Thank you for supporting Emily and the mission of Make-A-Wish! Mahalo!

2017 Fun Faire

Aloha Ka`elepulu Ohana!

The annual Ka`elepulu Community Fun Fair is coming this Saturday from 11am-7pm! We hope you will all join us, and invite your family, friends and neighbors.  We truly want this to be a day for our Community to come together, enjoy each other and all that we have planned!  It will be a fun-filled day with a multitude of games for the kids, including bouncy houses, many carnival games and even a ninja warrior course!  We will have a variety of food trucks to entertain your taste buds. There will be vendor booths so you can do a little shopping while the kids play games. Bring your blanket to enjoy the live entertainment all day! All the proceeds go to the Ka`elepulu PTSA which supports the Art, Music and PE programs at Ka`elepulu, as well as other events including Field Day in May.

The Student Council will have a booth selling baked goods and drinks (sodas, juice boxes, water bottles).  We need your help to stock them with supplies to be able to run their booth all day!  Please bring any donation of drinks or baked goods (individually bagged/wrapped) to school Friday morning at drop-off, Friday afternoon at pick-up or by 8am Saturday morning.  We are also in need of tents, tables and generators. Any of these items can be dropped off as well. PTSA members will be at the curb during drop-off and pick-up to collect your donations. 

We still need volunteers to help run games throughout the Fun Fair.  Come watch the excitement on the kids' faces while they try their best to toss that bean bag through the ladybug dots or pick that lucky duck with the star! Please contact Nicolle Grimes (Nicole_Grimes/KAELEPULU/ to volunteer.  The slots are in 2 hour increments.

Thank you in advance for your support of the 2017 Ka`elepulu Community Fun Fair!
