PTSA General Meeting Results: Drama Program

At the Special PTSA General Membership meeting on Monday, October 22nd, the General Membership passed the proposal put forth by Mr. Wilkins and Principal MacDonald for a new after-school Drama Program.  This program will be under the supervision of the Enatai administration and funded by the PTSA.  It will provide opportunities for third, fourth, and fifth grade students to act in a large scale dramatic production.  Students will also be able to participate in technical behind-the-scenes roles.  The full program will run from January to March.  Parents can learn more at the upcoming Drama Program Parent meeting in December 2018. 

The Enatai PTSA is proud to help provide this new opportunity for our students to explore the arts.  The strength of our school community has allowed the PTSA to maintain 30+ programs, community events, and financial support for the school.  Through the efforts of its members the PTSA is able to fund new project ideas and fulfill unexpected needs throughout the school year.  Thank you for your support!
