BSD ParentVUE Online Student Data Verification by Aug 24

Bellevue School District has requested parents of students attending BSD schools complete a data verification check to ensure teach school has the most up-to-date information for your child.

  • The BSD has created this webpage to give you more information about this process: Online Student Data Verification
  • You will need a username and password for yourself, the parent/guardian listed for your student(s).  If you need help logging on, email: parenthelp@bsd405.org
  • To go directly to the ParentVue system: ParentVUE
  • Examples of information to be verified: Spoken language, ethnicity, health concerns, medications, immunizations, emergency contacts, assigned school
  • This data check is offered online,  at computer kiosks at BSD schools (during office hours), and at the BSD Student Placement Office.  Please complete this verification by August 24th.
  • THIS IS A COURTESY NOTE FOR PARENTS.  The Enatai PTSA does not have access to this data and does not control this information system.  Please direct questions to the dataverification@bsd405.org or parenthelp@bsd405.org

PTSA Multicultural Committee is looking for translators!
WANTED:  Enatai Community members to translate documents! 
In an effort to reach as many families as possible, the Multicultural Committee, who runs Multicultural Week and International Taste of Enatai Family Night Event, would like to be able to translate posters, flyers, and emails written in English into every language used by Enatai Elementary families.  
 
Yes, there is Google translate, but nothing is better than a real person!  Can you donate your time and knowledge?  The following languages have the highest student representation, besides English:  Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin), and Russian.  We would love to have translators for these languages AND ANY OTHER LANGUAGES USED BY STUDENTS AT ENATAI!

Please email: communications@enataiptsa.org to help!

NOTICE: 2018-2019 Events without a Chair

PTSA budgets both income and expenses based on events that we have held historically and have chairs for the upcoming year.   Events or special projects without Chairs run the risk of being cancelled for the year.  
As of this date the following events and special projects do not have a Chair: 

Toast to Enatai The biggest and most important PTSA fundraiser of the year.

Yearbook*

Chair to be confirmed

Without a Yearbook Chair there will be no yearbook.   Most of the work for this special project is done at home and through correspondance.
PTSA Membership This Chair organizes the membership drive and provides a liaison to the public to discuss the PTSA's goals and workings.
Carnival One of the best end-of-the-year community events!  Does your child love Carnival?
Field Day Organized in conjuction with Enatai's PE teacher, this day promotes sports and outdoor play for students in an end-of-the-year event.
Variety Show   Enatai students have a chance to perform on the stage for their school and families.  This is the only opportunity for students with talents outside school programs to perform for their fellow students.
Special Mention: Haunted House A 5th Grade tradition, Haunted House and Spooky Spaghetti are the first community events of the year and are best run by a committee.  We do have one person willing to provide leadership for Spooky Spaghetti but more people for both events are needed.  Look for the 5th Grade meeting at the beginning of the new school year to join these teams!

To help these events and projects happen next year, please become its Event Chair!  If you cannot, please spread the word that someone is needed!  For questions about Event Chair responsibilities, please email: communications@enataiptsa.org.  Whenever possible, I will connect you to the departing Event Chair or a Board member for information.  Let's give our students a great year and provide them with the special events they love!

PTSA Memberships are now available for purchase!  In order to remain a member in good standing, PTSA Memberships must be repurchased each school year.  Simply use this handy link or click the "Join PTSA" link under announcements in our website.   There is more information about the benefits of PTSA Membership in our Membership 101 Info Page.

Update your Website Information!  After you have renewed your membership, please take a moment and log into your account at www.enataiptsa.org and update your information for the year.  Be sure to set your students’ grade level and teacher if you haven’t already done so.


Back to School!

Are you ready for school?  School starts on August 30th for Grades 1-12 and September 4th for Kindergarten.  Here's some helpful links and things to think about to help you prepare.

1.  School Supply list for Enatai Elementary, divided up by grade and then into 'Things for your student' and 'Things for your classroom to share'.

2.  BSD ParentVUE data verification is an online check of the important information listed on your student's account.  Try to finish this check by August 24th

3.  New to the school and not sure how to pick up or drop off your child?  There's guidelines written to help control the chaos!  Read about it here: Pickup and Drop off 101 and a great Map.

4.  Worried about your teacher assignment?  Mrs MacDonald, our principal, has confirmed that the teacher assignments will be emailed out on August 27th and kindergarten assignments will be emailed on August 28th.  Read the rest of her informative letter here: First Principal's letter of the school year

5.  Here is the Bellevue School District 2018-2019 school calendar with the planned holidays and No School Professional Days.  This is a great planning tool for future vacations!

6.  Join the Enatai PTSA!  Membership dues must be paid each year to keep you an active member.  Read why membership and your support is important here: Membership 101

7.  Consider volunteering at school or becoming a Room Parent, Art Docent, or Class Photographer for your child's class!  Each year, classrooms and specialists ask parents to provide another helping hand.  Ask your teacher if they want help and what they are looking for.  Specialists who run the Library, Art, PE, Music, and other programs may also need help.  If this is your area of interest let them know!  Room Parents work closely with teachers by coordinating parents in your classroom and informing them of PTSA events that affect them.  Ideally, each classroom should have a Room Parent so that your class or teacher is not left out!  This is your chance to participate in your child's education and be part of their day!

8.  Are you going to Wilburton Elementary?  Wilburton Elementary is a new school that will be opening its doors for the first time this school year!  It will be taking part of the areas previously allocated to Enatai, Clyde Hill, and Woodridge.  Therefore, some of our Enatai students will now attend Wilburton.  To find out if you are affected see this page at the BSD: BSD Find Your School.

9.  Individual Health Plans are due in the Enatai Office by Tuesday, August 21st!  If you child has a Individual Health Plan for allergies or other important health concerns you should have received an email from the school nurse, Erin Ferguson, back in June with forms that require parent and doctor signatures.  These and your student's emergency medications must be turned into the office.  If you do not have an Individual Health Plan and think you might need one, or did not receive an email in June, contact our school nurse at:  fergusoner@bsd405.org

Looking forward to seeing you all!
