International Taste of Enatai and Multicultural Week

In compliance with Bellevue School District guidelines we have decided to cancel the International Taste of Enatai.  Multicultural Week must also be cancelled due to the Bellevue School District announcement closing Enatai Elementary from March 13th through April 24th.

Thank you to all our wonderful contributors who share their food, cultural crafts, artwork, family heritage, and national dress with us each year and who were ready to jump into this year's preparations.  While we are unable to hold these events at this time,  we believe they are important to the students and families of Enatai.  We will do our best to bring a multicultural celebration to the school when we are once again able to gather as a community. 

PTSA Multicultural Chairs
Rae Okamoto, Thuy Wolf, Kathy Green, Kate Ongvisit, and Marilyn Gupta

Multicultural worksheets for students:  Download these pages and print them on 8.5"x11" paper.  Then decorate them with a country's flag, clothing, or colors!  When you return to school drop them off in the office's drop box and we will put them up at school!

Yearbook Needs Your Photos!

You know how every Yearbook reminder makes you think you should upload when you have time?  How about now?

The Yearbook has created an Shutterfly Enatai Yearbook photo share site to help us store photos for possible use in the yearbook. High resolution photographs with 2 or more students works the best when designing the yearbook. Do you have photos that you are interested in sharing with us? Please email yearbook@enataiptsa.org for an invite to the yearbook share site or you can email us the photos for the yearbook committee to upload.

Thanks for your help!

Community Corner 3/13

See new listings below.  Find the full list of Community Corner offerings on our website.  Notice: While we have not received any updates, we recommend you contact the organizer listed to confirm there has been no cancellations or postponements of their advertised programs.

Triangle Pool
Registration for our 2020 summer season is now open!  Early Bird pricing will be available until March 31st.   https://trianglepool.org/  Swim team sign-ups will open April 1st

 As a community pool our goals include providing a safe local place for our kids to learn to swim and enjoy the summer with their friends, and to be able to compete in a summer swim league where all abilities are welcome.  We take pride in providing our teenagers the option of having a summer job at the pool.  And, we love providing a great location for families to relax and get together close to home.  We strive to be a valued part of the community.
