Congratulations to all the participants and our school champion Adya!  Adya will take an online test to qualify for the State Contest in the following week.  Wish her all the best for the state test.
We are very proud of all participants - for your commitment and disciple of studying at home in the past 3 months.  Hope you enjoyed exploring the world through the study and the excitements during the competitions.  Most importantly you had fun through the whole process!
Special thanks to Mrs Chun who coordinated and host the competition! Without her, we would not be able to have this at school.

Food Share Program Update

Go Enatai Eagles! Enatai's Food Share program has provided 450 pounds of leftover food to a local food bank As you may be aware, students, parents and teachers came together in October 2018 to launch Food Share at Enatai.  Any unwanted and leftover packaged food from the lunchroom is transported once a week by parents to a local food bank.  This food previously use to end up as land fill.  Did you know that 7 Bellevue School District Elementary schools participate in the food share program?  In just 4 months this program has collected 7,044 pounds of food for donation.  We are proud that Enatai Elementary can be a part of making a difference! Thank you so much for everyone involved in this program!
