Sponsored Edition: Chalk and Talk

Lei Chic The Internet is good for many things.

Need a cat video? No problem. Want to look through your ex's recently posted wedding photos? Easy. Forgot the difference between effect and affect? Got it.

There are some things, however, that you just can't do online.

Dating (sure, you can start that online, but eventually you have to meet him), bra shopping, and picking your daughter's school, all come to mind.

Support your girls by handpicking their next school at La Pietra Hawaii School for Girls' upcoming Admission Open House. Sure, you can look at glossy photos of La Pietra's gorgeous campus on the Web, but to really confirm that this schoolhouse rocks, you're going to need to see it for yourself.

Lei ChicWitness things like the campus' first-rate athletic and academic facilities by catching a student-led tour. Then, learn a thing or two about what an all-girls school can offer your daughter, and take notes on the institution's super 10-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio during a presentation by Mahina Eleneki Hugo, head of the renowned Honolulu prep school.

For extra credit, stick around for presentations on the school's copious athletic and extra curricular opportunities, and feel free to ask any questions you have (teachers love questions). By the end of the night, we guarantee that you'll think La Pietra Hawaii School for Girls is a class act.

Because if you're going to make your daughter to do her homework, shouldn't you do yours first?

La Pietra's Admissions Open House is Thursday, April 26, 2012. Campus tour begins at 5:15 p.m. with presentations beginning at 6 p.m. For more information or to register, visit La Pietra's Web site.
