Fall Family Movie Night Mahalo


Thank you to everyone who came out to IPAPA’s Fall Family Movie Night, an All-Volunteer event by families and friends of IPA. It was nice to see the enjoyment of the costume contest, games, food, chili cook-off, the movie on the lawn, and the haunted house.

Have an idea to make the next event more enjoyable? Get involved in planning and organizing. More helping hands are needed! Let us know to add your name to one of the event areas. IPAPA@ipahawaii.org

...and all the other wonderful families who added their support!

Through these collective efforts, we raised both funds and fun with a worthwhile focus on the families of our IPA community. The event was a huge success! Not only was it attended by more students and families than ever before; more money was raised than ever before as well. After all expenses were paid, there was a profit of over $9000! This will enable IPAPA to fund several events and activities such as the inaugural Fun Run, Spring Social, and Teacher Appreciation, which will benefit our students and increase engagement amongst our IPA community.

After executing these events, IPAPA will make a significant donation to IPA’s Annual Fund at the close of the school year. Thank you all for your volunteer efforts, your participation and your attendance. A wise man once said, “Whenever you can…HELP.”

We look forward to more families joining the fun at next year's event!
