Yearbook Co-Chair Needed!

Stephanie Hill-Harris, our Yearbook Chair of many years, (Thank you, Stephanie!!) has graduated and a new Yearbook Team is needed to coordinate and create our school's yearbook.   A generous parent has already stepped forward to take up the technical aspects of creating the yearbook itself.  Gigi Liu, a working parent, has volunteered to be Yearbook Co-Chair in charge of composing the Yearbook.  A Co-Chair or Chairs are now needed to round out this team!

Can you help preserve our school memories and become the Yearbook Co-Chair?

Kindergarten Field Trip!

Image property of Seattle Children's TheatreThe kindergarteners went on a fun field trip last week to see "The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show" at the Seattle Children's Theatre! The play features four beloved stories by the writer and illustrator Eric Carle performed onstage by very large puppets.

Even in just the third week of school, all of the kindergarten teachers commended their wonderful students for great behavior and practicing their listening skills in what was for some, their very first field trip!

Thanks to all of the parent volunteers who chaperoned on this trip and of course the Enatai PTSA who made it possible!

After School @ Enatai:  
Adventures in Robot starts Friday after school!

In our Fall TechVenture Kids Code Club we will focus on robots with 3, 4 and 5th graders.  Starting this Friday, we will meet after school for 8 weeks to learn about computer science and robotics with hands on projects, builds and activities.  We'll be working with Dash robots from Wonder and some new Lego compatible robots!  We'll explore various coding platforms with these robots, too.   Our class will build on the STEM skills kids are getting in school encouraging them to think more deeply and develop critical reasoning and programming skills in a club atmosphere.
