How is your student doing on your RUN WALK & ROLL pledges?  Fundraising allows us to support our students by providing math and reading aides for better staff-student ratios and many other enrichment benefits.  Please participate in our RUN WALK & ROll event at a level that is comfortable and meaningful to you.  All funds donated are 100% tax-deductible and are used to support every Enatai Eagle's education.  For more information on how and why we fundraise, check out our Fundraising 101 webpage.

PTSA 2019 Awards Nominations: due 5/17

Every year, the Enatai PTSA recognizes and celebrates a few of the wonderful people who help to make our vibrant school community great by giving out The Golden Acorn Award, The Outstanding Educator Award, and new this year, The Unsung Hero award.  

We would love to have your help in the nominating process. Do you know a special person who goes above and beyond, or even one who quietly supports our community without much fanfare? Do you know someone else whose efforts deserve special recognition this year? We'd love to hear about them! Please take a moment to fill out this anonymous nomination form. This survey will close on May 17th and the awards will be announced at the Carnival on June 14th.


RSVP for 4th Grade Parent Meeting on 5/17 

This meeting is presented by some of your fellow 4th Grade Parents with help from the 5th Grade Teachers, PTSA, and past and current 5th Grade Parents.

Come hear a proposal for next year's 5th Grade Haunted House fundraiser and bring your own ideas to the table! These meetings will be the first to discuss the 5th Grade Haunted House.  If you wish to be part of the planning but cannot attend either meeting please email us to stay informed.  Other events we will briefly discuss are 5th Grade Sweatshirts, our Carnival booth, fulfilling Yearbook needs for the special 5th Grade section, and other activities reliant on the families in our grade.  Hear the information we have gathered and join us in getting organized for next year!

Book donations and end of year book checkout

A Message from our Librarian:

If you have any books you would like to donate to our year end book swap in the library, I am taking donations. This event will be happening in library class (K-4th grade) on the last full week of school.

In addition, the last day for students to check out book in our library is Monday June 3. After that, all books need to be returned so that I can inventory the library. If you cannot find the book, please contact me so we can make arrangements to clear up your child's account.

Thank you.
Ms. Lee
