Held in the fall, parents are invited to get to know their child's teachers, learn more about how they teach, and are able to ask questions.
Held in conjunction with the Spring Celebration event in May. This is an informal meeting where new board members are voted in and the retiring board members are thanked.
Usually 3 pm - 7 pm Saturday!
Held on a spring evening at the school, The Big Chill is our main fundraiser. Children and adults enjoy games, crafts and music. There is a snack bar and bake sale. The silent auction is full of unique items created by the children and staff as well as high quality items donated by businesses, friends and parents of The Early School. There is an entrance fee for adults, but children are free!
Held at the school around Thanksgiving time, this potluck, is feast for the kids!
Held in spring at the school, this may be your child's first stage performance. After the children sing songs and dance, a slide show follows. This is a very popular event for the children and parents.
School is closed and parents are invited to meet one-on-one with their children's teachers.
Held before the winter break at the school, this Potluck breakfast is a great way to get to know other TES parents.
Held twice per year on Saturday mornings, parents bring their hammers, drills, weedwhackers, etc., and help beautify the school. Projects include touch-up painting, raking leaves and sanitizing toys. Lunch and drinks are provided.
Two unofficial Early School camp outs are held at Malaekahana State Park every summer, one in June and the other in August. The camp outs are open to alumni so lots of older children are running around. Usually Saturday nights are potluck so bring a salad, starch, main dish, or dessert large enough to feed your family.
Days are spent at the beach and some brave campers adventure out to Goat Island (Mokuaula).
BTW: Volunteers are needed to get camping permits on-line one month prior.
