Enatai students help End Summer Hunger!

About 16% of Enatai Elementary's student population receives free or reduced-price lunches. During the summer time the loss of school meals causes challenges for these families. Part of the Hopelink End Summer Hunger program focus is on kids helping kids through classroom coin drives. This is a great way to show that Enatai students can make a difference when their spare change is added together.

During the week of June 10-14th, students will be collecting coins in their classrooms. Please help encourage your student(s) to bring coins in to contribute to their classroom collection. Our Enatai community can also help our students NOW with online donations. Please share our Enatai Elementary student page with your friends and family. Together our students and generous community can ensure kids have enough to eat during the summer. Let's see how much our students can collect to help End Summer Hunger! Thanks for your support!


Bellevue High School Swing Dance 6/1

Current 4th Grade Students and Families:  Want to hear what your future sounds like when you pick a musical instrument next year?  Come hear Chinook Middle School and Bellevue High School musicians play, both in ensemble and solo!
The Sixth Annual Bellevue High School Swing Dance will be held on Saturday, June 1, from 7-10 pm in the BHS commons (after being snowed out in February). This is a community event and all are invited. The evening will feature a dance lesson at 7 pm followed by live music performed by the Bellevue High School and Chinook Middle School jazz bands featuring soloists and musicians from the BHS choir and orchestra. Admission is $10 for Adults, $5 for Students/Seniors, or $20 for the whole family. Light refreshments will be served and proceeds will benefit the Chinook Middle School and Bellevue High School Band programs.

Reminders 5/31

It is time for the FINAL Box Tops for Education round up for this school year.  This school year we have collected $292 worth of box tops?  This money helps the school purchase recess equipment.  

Please take a look around your house for box tops (ziploc bags, cereals, tissues, paper supplies, etc).  Here's a list of participating products. Each box top earns 10 cents for the school. Send box tops in an envelope to have your student give to your teacher or drop your box top collection in the front office by June 14th.  Ask your friends, family and neighbors.  This is an easy way to help support your Enatai students!  
Thanks for your help!

If you have any books you would like to donate to our year end book swap in the library, I am accepting donations until Friday June 14. 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 by Monday, June 10 so that I can inventory the library.  

From June 10 to June 19, I am looking for help in the library to inventory 11,000+ books. The first few days would entail helping to get all of the books on the shelves in order. After that, it’s scanning each book to determine which ones are lost. If you have any time in the day to help out, please contact me. I would be most appreciative.
