Back to School Checklist, 2015-2016

We hope that this checklist will help your family prepare for the start of the new school year.  It includes all the important to-do's to help you (and your child) get ready for what will surely be an incredible year.

 

  What To Do Before School Starts  
 
 
 
The Encinal PTO plays a vital role in supporting and enriching our students' daily education. With your volunteer time and your financial help we support classroom libraries, field trips, and much more.

CLICK HERE TO JOIN
 
 
Also, please pledge or make a donation to the MPAEF. It funds 10% of the district’s budget this year, paying for our art and science teachers, our librarian, our music specialist, and more. Can you imagine Encinal without these teachers and programs?
 
Read Encinal Newsletter
 
The newsletter is delivered to your email inbox on Sunday every week with occasional mid-week updates and reminders.  Be sure to READ it when it comes! 


Come to the
Back-to-School Coffee
