Welcome to the 2019-2020 Enatai PTSA Newsletter! 

Our newsletter is published on Fridays.  We try to keep it informative and, hopefully, short.  If you miss something, articles are kept on the front page of our website until they are no longer applicable.  We also maintain a newsletter archive, which is kept on our Newsletter 101 Info Page.  I hope you'll find the newsletter helpful as it is the #1 tool we have to keep you up to date on school news.  We also try to pack the Enatai PTSA website with information to help you during the school year: Take a look!
