Welcome to the 2018-2019 Enatai PTSA Newsletter! 

Our newsletter is published on Fridays except for this one because there's so much to say!  We try to keep it short and sweet, and only give you NEW NEWS and not clog your inbox with repeated information (except these first few weeks when we'll be getting lots of new subscribers - bear with us).  If you miss something, articles are kept on the front page of our website until they are no longer applicable.  We also maintain a newsletter archive, which is kept on our Newsletter 101 Info Page.  I hope you'll find the newsletter helpful as it is the #1 tool we have to keep you up to date on school news.  We also try to pack the Enatai PTSA website with information to help you during the school year: Take a look!

Library Volunteers Needed

A Message from our New Librarian:

I am currently recruiting volunteers to assist in the library.  Mostly, I need assistance checking books in/out at the start of the school day and shelving books.  I can also use parents to help assist my kindergarten and 1st graders check out books.  Please consider volunteering your time.  I are flexible and will do my best to accommodate your schedule.  You can email me at leecharleen@bsd405.org  with your name, child’s name, days/times you are available.

Thank you,
Charleen Lee, Teacher-Librarian
