Enatai Eagle Academic Adventure
2018-2019

      

 

The Enatai Eagle Academic Adventure program encourages kids to stretch themselves by choosing their own adventures in Literacy, Math and Programming, Science, the Arts, Social Studies, Geography, and Fitness. Kids learn to set goals, work hard, and reap the rewards of their efforts. 

 

How to Participate

1) Parents and kids register online by clicking on the link below. Kids can participate without registering, but they will miss out on any updates or reminders throughout the year. As part of registering, kids will be asked to select the Adventures they may participate in. This allows PTSA to gauge participation and communicate with you more effectively. Kids may change their preferred Adventures throughout the year.

2) Kids choose their Adventures. See table below for a description of each Adventure.

3) Kids and parents document participation in the Adventures using Logs and the Final Entry Form. All forms and logs can be found near the office, or online by clicking on the links below.  Completed logs and reports can be turned in throughout the year using the Academic Adventure box located in the Library.

4) Kids and parents complete the Final Entry Form. Completed Final Entry Forms should be placed in the Academic Adventure box located in the Library, or scanned and emailed to academicadventure@enataiptsa.org by May 3, 2019.

5) Kids earn awards! Students receive a ribbon for each Adventure they complete throughout the year. Students who finish 4 out of 7 Adventures receive an Academic Eagle Wall of Fame Certificate, and those who complete all 7 adventures receive a certificate and a principal’s medal! 

New this year, Principal's Medals will be awarded at a private event with the Principal in June. 

 

DUE DATE FOR FINAL ENTRY FORM IS MAY 3, 2019.
