Attention 5th Grade Parents!

Welcome to Enatai Fifth grade!

This is a big year as our kids are finally the big kids on campus.  With that said we need parents to step up and chair the 5th grade specific items that help make this year so special.   Your student will be enjoying every one of these events, so this is your chance to share with them their final year of elementary school!  5th Grade events run smoothly when Parents participate and lead from the start of the year.  Take a look at the 5th Grade webpage to see what your student can look forward to and what help is needed:  5th Grade Events.

The first event of the year is right around the corner on October 26th!  The Enatai Haunted House and Spooky Spaghetti event is a fundraiser for the 5th Grade events and is run by 5th Graders and their Parents.  Planning starts now!   The Haunted House is without a Chair and needs one or two parents to take the lead as soon as possible!!  Come talk to the Spooky Spaghetti Chair on Curriculum Night in the 5th Grade Pod or email PTSA President Amy Hart with questions: president@enataiptsa.org
