Message from ENSATS 9/1/2022

Good Evening Families:

It was exciting to welcome all of our students and staff members back to school this week. Sophomores and seniors came ready to work in their CTAE areas, and many students were busy as we visited shops this week. Freshmen and juniors spent the first few days getting to know their new academic teachers.


As we begin the year, we strongly encourage you to read our student handbook and re-familiarize yourself with our guidelines for student success! 


Big shout-out to our PTO who hosted a breakfast and coffee bar on Tuesday. It was a great way to start the day and enjoy some collaboration time!


This year we will be working with Jon Gordon’s Energy Bus Principles of Positivity. Jon was here to speak to our staff on Opening Day.

As a reminder, some room locations have been adjusted. We ask that all students log in to Aspen to check their schedules before switching to green week classes on Wednesday, September 6th. It is also a great idea to take a picture of the schedule so that students can easily access it on their phones.

Save the Date: Back-to-School Night 

We plan to have our Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, September 13th. This will allow caregivers to meet their student’s teachers and learn about class expectations. We will provide more details regarding the schedules next week.
