The Enatai Science Fair is going virtual this year!

What is it? It’s an online school-wide event that allows students to better understand the scientific process by researching a scientific question. All Enatai students are welcome to participate! Instead of bringing the final projects to an event at school, we’ll post photos of the display boards and PDF posters on our science fair web page. Projects are due Friday, May 15th.

Passport Club at Home!

Due to the school closure, there will be no more Passport Checks for the remainder of the school year.  However, let’s take this opportunity to study Geography at home!

Did your child miss the March Passport Check? Did she or he miss any previous passport check? Do you know that you can do makeup checks at home to catch up?

As a parent, you can be a checker for your child. Even your child’s Passport Club friend can check him or her via FaceTime! It would be fun to see your friend on video chat and study new countries together!

Please go to the Passport Club website for monthly study maps (password: “HelloWorld”).

For more information about makeup checks at home, please email passportclub@enataiptsa.org
