Rotary Club of Poipu Visits Alaka’i

Last week, the Rotary Club of Poipu visited our school. Members were given a tour of classrooms and campus and met with Director Fred Birkett about joining forces with their organization. We are so thankful to Peter Baldwin (2nd grader Raegan Baldwin’s grandfather) for visiting our school and considering us for future programs that connect the Rotary Club with Alaka’i. Mahalo!

Lights on Rice Parade

Alaka’i O Kaua’i participated in the Lights on Rice Parade on Friday, Dec. 7. We had a great turnout of families and staff draped in lights and wearing holiday apparel, with decorated scooters, strollers, and wagons, and the peace bus made an appearance, too, adorned with lights! It was great to see our school represented in this special annual event! Thank you to all who joined us. A great night was had by all!

 

Lights Lights LIGHTS! — Info on the Lights on Rice Parade

We hope that all our ohana can participate with us in the Lights on Rice Parade this Friday! This week we are collecting donations of Christmas lights, glow sticks, Santa hats and candy canes. Please bring donations to the main office.

At the parade, please wear your purple school shirts and lots of LIGHTS! School shirts for adults and children are still available for purchase in the school office.

On Friday, we will meet at 5:45 p.m. at Vindihna Stadium. The parade will line up at 6:15 p.m., and the parade begins at 6:30 p.m. If you have trouble finding us, there will be an info booth on the ballpark side of the stadium and they can help direct you.

Carpooling is recommended to either Vindinhna Stadium, or you can take the shuttle from Kukui Grove and “hoof it” to the stadium to line up.

This year we will not have a float, which is all the more reason to make sure we have a large group of walkers, wearing their school logo shirts, representing our awesome school!

Please RSVP to Claire or Gabby if your family will be participating in this event so we have a rough headcount of how many will be with us.

If you have any further questions about the Lights on Rice Parade please contact Gabby Sasil at sasil@live.com or Claire at claire.woolger@alakaiokauai.org.
