Thank you for every way you have made our school community better this year!

We’re putting the principals in the dunk tank!

Hello Enfield Elementary families! It’s finally really, truly Spring. It’s been a great couple of weeks since our Spring break and there’s awesome things happening all around our school!

Next PTA meeting is tomorrow, May 6th. Dinner at 5:30, meeting starts promptly at 6. We have a special guest Mary Grover coming to discuss changes to middle school math. Click here for the agenda.

Oh my gosh, we’re RUNNING! At morning program last week we counted up the miles we have run as a whole school so far. Guess what?! We have run from Maine to Ohio! The energy and spirit of the whole school running together was inspiring. Keep up the good work! Mark your calendars to come cheer on our kids for the FINAL MILE on June 19th.

This week is teacher appreciation week! We’re having our annual teacher appreciation luncheon tomorrow. Consider taking a moment to do an extra thank-you for the teachers in your life, too.

We’re gearing up for the Enfield Spring Faire Saturday from 11-3pm. PTA is participating this year with a DUNK TANK and a cake walk! We need donations of cakes for the cake walk, please. Tell your friends! It’s going to be so much fun!

It’s time to plan for next year’s PTA officers. Please let us know at (Enfieldpta@gmail.com) if you are interested in leadership with PTA. Thank you!

Enfield Marathon Miles

At Enfield school Spring means RUN! We’re gearing up for our annual Enfield Marathon Miles Challenge for every Enfield student. Enfield students in grades 2-5 will begin running on the school track with a goal of getting to 26.2 miles. Pre-K-1st will have a half- marathon (13.1) goal! We will run every week with our classes. Our FINAL MILE is a whole-community celebration in June where we cheer each other on as we cross the finish line. Please join us on March 29th for a special Friday Celebration kickoff from 8-8:30 in the gym.

Can Drive

In other PTA News we are in full swing with our Spring Can Drive! We’ve partnered with IthaCan and Bottle Return to raise funds. We need your help! Can you post a flyer, share about it on social media, or ask friends and family to donate their cans and bottles? IthaCan is making it easy for hus by sorting and counting everything for us and offering us $.06/can! We just have to drop it off. And the PTA president has offered to do pickups until Spring break, too! Call or text: 607-342-3037 for pickup.

PTA news and reminders

The time between the February break and the April break can feel a little bit long, and a little bit grey. Don’t fret! PTA has an action packed month of March to give us things to look forward to and keep busy with!

We’re sending a group of spellers to the Adult Spelling Bee which is a fundraiser for IPEI. IPEI has been very supportive of Enfield teachers in the past couple of years, and we are excited to participate to support them! Support our team, Enfield Spellbound, by clicking here: Enfield Spellbound Team Fundraiser. You can also watch them and cheer them on! https://www.facebook.com/events/2235888803094123/

Our next regular PTA meeting is Monday, March 4th. The agenda will be posted in the next week, and it will include diving into upcoming events and  discussion on fundraising. If you have any ideas or want to volunteer for Dino night, the book sale, Enfield Marathon Miles running program or teacher appreciation luncheon, please come or let us know!

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming up March 12-14th. Some of our regular book fair volunteers are not able to help as much  this time around, so we really need volunteers! Every 2hr volunteer shift gets you a $20 credit to the fair. We love grandparent and community helpers, too! Thank you for considering.

Dino Night is March 13th from 5:30-7pm. We are SO EXCITED to because the Museum of the Earth is presenting Dinosaur Stories and Science which will include story time and sharing some of the fossil collection. Cornell Herpetological Society and RRR Reptile Rescue of the Southern Finger Lakes are also coming to share some modern reptiles including snakes and lizards! The book fair will be open during the event.

March 29th brings two PTA events. First, Final(ly) Friday Staff Treats will occur as it has every final Friday of the month. This is treats baked and brought by parents who love our staff. Generally served 7:30-9ish.

Second, we’re kicking off the Marathon Miles Spring Running Program with a special Friday Celebration! At Enfield school in the Spring our students run, run, run most days around the track at our school. We build up the miles with a goal of running a marathon (or a half marathon for the little ones) and we all come together for a final run and celebration in June. Just another way that Enfield Soars!
