Several pupils, in kindergarten through second grade, stood on the stage at Centennial Lane Elementary School trying to twirl "poi balls," just as they had seen Kathleen Haller demonstrate. Haller, who was giving a presentation Thursday at the school on Hawaiian culture, dance and music, made it look so easy. She simply held one poi ball by the string in each hand and twirled them at her sides and even over her head. Her son, Tom Haller, 20, who was helping out with the show, did an even faster and more elaborate demonstration with the poi balls, which are used in Hawaii for dance and exercise, Haller explained.

A middle school PTA volunteer in Utah offered to drop off the $1,700 raised at a book fair but pocketed the money instead of going to the bank. An elementary school PTA president in Nebraska stole more than $3,000 when she couldn't keep up with car payments. A PTA treasurer in California embezzled $30,000 to help pay family medical bills. It's not unheard of for someone to abscond with the money raised by selling gift-wrap, pizza kits and candy bars to pay for computer labs, outdoor bleachers and playgrounds.
