TEAMWORK makes the DREAM WORK!
Parents play a critical role in the success of their students. We value our parents at Enterprise Learning Academy. We welcome your support, feedback and contributions. There are a variety of ways for you to support manatees, from classroom donations to chaperoning fieldtrips.

Our Parent Resource Room is now open to all parents. We have a computer for completing online registration, checking student academic progress and emailing teachers. We also have valuable resources to support parents as well as students. Please visit our welcome center for more information.
At Enterprise Learning Academy, we would love to welcome parents into the school to assist in the classroom or around the building in other ways. Please see the options available below. This doesn't have to be on a daily basis, some tasks can be provided sporadically or regularly scheduled. Any assistance would be appreciated.* All volunteers will need to have a background check with the district in order to begin volunteering in the school.
