Encino Park News & Upcoming Events

October 13, 2016

Hello Encino Park Family

Can you believe tomorrow is the end of the first nine-weeks? This year is flying by. There are many exciting things happening around campus. Hoops for Heart, Red Ribbon Week, Special Olympics Bowling Tournament, Book Fair and Fall Individual Pictures just to name a few.

Speaking of pictures, when paying for your photos please complete one envelope per child and include payment in each envelope. This will ensure that you receive the correct picture package that you ordered for each student. Photos are prepaid and all envelopes must be received by the morning of October 18, 2016.

Have a fantastic evening!

APEX Fun Run

We have done a fantastic job of collecting our pledges for the APEX Fun Run. So far we have collected 84% of all outstanding pledges. Let's try for 100% Please send in those pledges. Thank you for such a successful Fundraiser.


Please be sure to use crosswalks when crossing the streets or accessing the parking lot during arrival and dismissal. There is a lot of traffic along Caliza and is difficult to see pedestrians crossing the road. The safety of you and your children is important.

Thanks and Have a Safe Day!

Mr. Miller
