It's GO TIME for Enatai's Read-A-Thon!

It's time to start reading for our FIRST MAJOR FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR!  Starting this Monday, your student should begin logging their minutes spent reading for the Enatai Read-A-Thon!  All the information you need to participate in our Read-A-Thon can be found in this PDF Packet, or on our Read-A-Thon Page
New this year:  Make your donations and do your reading log ONLINE!!  We hope this makes it SUPER EASY to participate in the Read-A-Thon and support our Enatai Eagles! 

If you are gathering donations from friends and family, simply email them this link:


They will be able to make an online donation without creating an account at enataiptsa.org, and they can tag it to your student by typing the student's name in the box.  Although they won't have to create a website account, it will prompt them to enter their name and email address.  This is so that if Sarah or Kerry have questions for them, or their donation did not get tagged to a student, we can email them and sort it out.

If you are donating as a parent, you can make a Read-A-Thon donation by clicking this link, which will allow you to select your student from a drop-down menu.  (You can donate as a guest, too, but doing it under your account is better/easier. :))

You can find out more about PTSA Fundraising on our Fundraising 101 Info Page.  Questions?  Email chairs Sarah Bryan or Kerry Hill.


Movie Night - TONIGHT!  6-8pm in the Gym

More Surprises In Store at Movie Night!  Who will win the chance to sit on The Movie Night Sofa? Come to Movie Night tonight, and maybe you and your family will have the privilege of sitting front-and-center on a beautiful cushy sofa – the best seats in the house, courtesy of Seldens Designer Home Furnishings.

Also, be ready to have your picture taken with our resident Panda Bear!  There are always fun surprises at Movie Night, so don’t miss out. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the fun begins at 6:00 p.m. tonight in the Enatai Multipurpose Room. The featured attraction is DisneyNature’s Born in China.  Filmed on location in China, the movie features panda bears, snow leopards and golden monkeys in stunning cinematography.

A special thank you to Enatai parents Dave & Anne Masin for arranging The Movie Night Sofa.

Parental Advisory: Although rated “G” DisneyNature’s Born in China includes footage depicting some cruel realities of life in the wild. Scenes of animal peril and death may be disturbing for very little or sensitive children. Please review the details of the film at CommonSenseMedia.org to decide what is appropriate for your child.

Movie Night is FREE for Enatai families because of fundraisers like the Read-A-Thon!
