Looking to Revamp Year-Long Committees

As we have been ramping back up since the long hiatus that COVID put us in, we are looking for support so that we can continue to provide the long-standing services that our school relies on as well as get back to the more extensive programs and events of years past.

We are looking to reinstate two very important committees. If you would like to help with either of these programs, please contact our President Kerry Hill at president@enataiptsa.org.

1. The Curriculum Enhancement committee. In years past, the committee was made up of grade level representatives and staff to suggest and go over requests for guest speakers, authors, field trips, etc, to ensure that the funds were allocated in a way that was fair and reasonable. We very much want to bring back these key parts of our kids education and need your help!

2. The Fundraising Committee. Our ability to put on the events and support programs at Enatai depends entirely on our ability to raise the money to support them. In the past few years we have been piecing together fundraising events driven by individual efforts but without an overall organized plan. In the Before Times the asks for money were coordinated and timed, and we also leveraged our community with a Corporate Partners chair. We are hoping to bring this back to have a more systematic approach to fundraising! If you have ideas please reach out!

Tigersharks Season Is On The Horizon!

The 2024 Tigershark season will be here before you know it. Now is the time to get ready to dive in!

Assessments for new swim team members will be in April.  The requirement to join the Tigersharks is to swim a 25 yard length of the pool, and tread water for 60 seconds.  Swimmers age 5-9 who are not ready to pass the assessment can join the Junior Tigershark team.  This team begins by swimming the width of the pool rather than the length.  Junior Tigersharks are also eligible to swim one exhibition race at home meets. For more information visit the Tiger Shark website.

Enatai moms Claire Phillips and Nicole Forrest are the coaches for the team and are happy to answer your questions.  You can email them at coach@trianglepool.org See you at the pool!
