Color Fun Run

`Aikahi PTA is hosting a Color Fun Run on Saturday, April 30, 2016. `Aikahi students are free. Parents, teachers, and family will pay a $10 registration fee.


This is a fundraiser for the `Aikahi PTA. The PTA understands that this has been a very active fundraising school year. The 2015-16 school year has brought many new and exciting positive changes. These changes have resulted in many more funding requests for the PTA. Our hope is that with the success of this fundraiser, we can limit the amount of fundraisers for the 2016-17 school year and focus on just a few of our most successful events going forward.


For information, visit aikahi.myfunrun.com.


The color run packet went home in last week's Tuesday folder. Gina Salehi is in charge of this event. If you have any questions, email her at ginagaetani@hotmail.com.
