Toast to Enatai Update

Why do we hold the Toast to Enatai? The Toast to Enatai is the largest fundraising event of the year to raise funds for three main categories of needs: math and reading aides, curriculum enhancement such as field trips and assemblies, and classroom and library supplies.  This is not only an event to raise funds, but also a great time to build community, meet other parents and teachers, and have fun so be sure to by your tickets now! You can purchase tickets here.

Multicultural Week Special Features

Enatai Elementary's 2019 Multicultural Week will be from March 25th-March 29th.  During this week our students celebrate our community's diversity by sharing their knowledge of the varied cultures that have touched their lives and learning about others. 

Multicultural Week decorates Enatai's halls with student work, including Academic Adventure travel posters and cultural worksheets that will come home in student backpacks after Midwinter Break.  Staff and Parents are invited to create their own displays!  Did you know the flags hanging in the cafeteria were originally put up for the first Multicultural Week in our new building?  They were kept in place for the enjoyment of our students who could recognize flags from their studies and their lives.  Our decorating day is March 22nd, please sign up to help us decorate during or after school!

This year we are bringing back recess entertainment!   Last seen in our final year at Old Enatai in 2014, recess entertainment invites performers of culturally based music, dance or skills to interact with students in a fun, informal environment.  Have a suggestion?  Email us ASAP!  Can you help during our recess entertainment?  See opportunities to lend a hand on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday of Multicultural Week!

Sign up to help Multicultural Week

More information:  Multicultural Week + International Taste of Enatai webpage.  Questions?  Come to our information meeting on March 5th at 8-9am in the STEM room, or email us: multicultural@enataiptsa.org.  Opportunities to contribute to our family night, the International Taste of Enatai, are coming after Mid-Winter Break!
