Amazon Shopping Program

Fundraise for LJA While You Shop!

If you shop on Amazon, you can effortlessly earn money for LJA . Since joining the program in August 2010, the Amazon Associates shopping program has earned over $53,000 for LJA.

There is no sign up involved and no special codes to enter. Just use our unique school shopping link to get to and then shop as you normally do. Each month Amazon pays us up to 10% of all purchases.

Share the link with friends and family and they can earn for us too. It's easy as 1, 2, 3!

CPK Days

Held the second Wednesday of each month, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) Days are family restaurant days where LJA receives a percentage of purchases made by LJA families, faculty, and friends during the day/evening at California Pizza Kitchen in downtown Kailua. It’s a festive and social way to support LJA, and you won’t have to cook that night! Simply print out and present the CPK flyer to your server (see link, below), and 20% of your check will be donated to the PFA. A paper copy of the flyer is required, pictures of the flyer on your phone or iPad do not count.

Helpful Tips:
  • If you don't feel like eating out, place your order online, schedule a pickup time, then pick it up curbside. Reheat when you're ready to eat!
  • Have a relaxing lunch with your friends (the kids don't have to know)!
  • Dine in early, the rush starts about 5:30 p.m.
  • If you have older kids, the restaurant starts to empty by 6:30 - 7:00 p.m.

How to Say "Le Jardin"

How to Say "Le Jardin"


  • Sounds like “look” without the “k”
  • Is not pronounced “lay”
  • Is not pronounced like “let” without
    the “t”


  • The “J” is soft, as in the "g" sounds in the words “beige” or “menagerie”; it is like the first sound in the name “Zsa Zsa”
  • “ar” sounds like the word “are”
  • “din” sounds like the name “Dan” with the final “n” nasalized and silent
