Looking for a Reflections Program Chair for Next Year

Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life. Students in pre-K through grade 12 create original works of art in response to a theme. Click here for this year's winners and theme.

The Enatai program coordinator will be a liaison between the national program and Enatai community, collect/send artwork to the judges, and showcase the projects, online or in the building.

Enatai Passport Club Members Go the Distance

This school year, we held the Passport Club program solely through distance learning. We thank all students who participated in the program and hope you learned something interesting about different countries.

We’d also like to show appreciation to parents for their support. Constantly encouraging their children to work on activities at home in addition to their normal school work takes a lot of effort and dedication - it’s not an easy task for busy parents like you!

Olivia McKee-Pflaum - 5th (Ms. Chun)
Hiro Mitchell-Lu - 4th (Ms. Fisher)
Evelyn Bower - 3rd (Ms. Neal)
