Thanksgiving Thank You

Thank you to all the parents who helped with our JK Thanksgiving Potluck. Your assistance was much needed and very much appreciated.


Winter Wonderland at the Main Campus

Save December 15th in your calendar as the upper campus celebrates the winter holidays with free crafts and free photos with Santa. This year, the snow play will also be free for our Keiki. Students who want to play must sign-up; please see the link in the Lower School weekly next week. 


Gift-wrapped Boxes Needed

Empty holiday gift-wrapped boxes are needed to help decorate our stage for the Winter Concert. The decoration committee is kindly asking for your help in contributing medium to large sized boxes wrapped in silver and turquoise.  Please drop your boxes at the front courtyard table no later than December 16th. Thank you!


Toys for Tots

We're still collecting toys for the Toys for Tots program. The final day of collection is Thursday, December 6th. Thank you to everyone who has already donated!


Fundraise for LJA While Holiday Shopping!

If you plan to shop on Amazon this holiday season, you can effortlessly earn money for LJA by using the LJA Amazon Associates shopping link. Since joining the program in August 2010, LJA has earned over $54,000 – and the holiday season is our biggest opportunity to earn. There is no sign up involved and no special codes to enter. Just use our unique school shopping link then shop as you normally do. Each month Amazon pays us up to 10% of all purchases. Items like electronics (especially Amazon Kindle, Echo, and Fire), jewelry, and home improvement are especially high earners! Share the link with friends and family!



If you have a child or know a child eligible for our program next year, please note the application deadline is December 15th.
