T shirts are in P14

There’s also a full size range of adult sizes. $10.00 for all sizes, cash or check payable to ‘Hale Kula PTO’. Available in room P14 at any time.

Walk or bike to school benefits
There are so many good reasons to walk or bike to school daily. With the current construction traffic & daily PT, you can probably get here faster with less stress. Great exercise for the whole family. Lucky we live Hawai’i and don’t have snow and severe weather. Take advantage of your stay in Hawai’i and make a point of walking to school, thankful that you are not forced to drive due to inclement weather.  Excessive tardies are challenging to a students education, you control your time better by walking. Parking is a nightmare, there I said it, so avoid it by walking.
