Carr Fire: Information & How You Can Help
Laura Morlan

From Enterprise Elementary School District:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has been impacted by the CARR Fire. Please know that Enterprise Elementary School District is here to support you. We want to provide you with some important information to help you plan for the upcoming school year.

Our school offices are open and ready to answer any of your questions. We are here to serve all students.

The first day of school is Wednesday, August 15. Our schools are ready to serve students and we assure families we are here to provide a safe, caring, supportive learning environment.

We will continue to post resources on our EESD webpage to help families during this difficult time. Shasta County Office of Education also has resources posted on their webpage.   Please contact your school if you have specific questions about attendance or enrolling new students.

We have received several questions about how you can help. Shasta County Office of Education has created a Go Fund Me Account set up to support families. You can access the Go Fund Me Account on the EESD Website. Funds will be used for helping with school clothes and school supplies for students from preschool through high school who have lost their homes

Thank you first responders and firefighters. We are #ReddingStrong and we will come together to care for each other during these difficult times. Enterprise Elementary School District is here to serve you.

How you can contribute....

  • Go Fund Me - Students

    • Funds will be used for students from preschool through high school across the county who have lost their homes for helping with school clothes and school supplies.

On Monday, February 26th, Shasta County Superintendent, Judy Flores, honored students from around the county at the first annual Every Student Succeeds event.  Representing Enterprise Elementary School District was Ryder Holmes.  His story of overcoming obstacles with grit and determination is powerfully motivating.  Ryder's positivity and tenacity inspire us all and remind us that love always wins.

Thank you, Ryder and his amazing mother, Robin, for sharing your inspirational story!

The eclipse of 2017 proved to be a memory-maker for the students at Shasta Meadows Elementary School.  Though the eclipse occurred just 3 days into the new school year, Shasta Meadows teachers were ready with solar eclipse glasses for every student and lesson plans ranging from the most simplistic for our Kindergarten students to the detailed for 5th graders.  Students gazed up in amazement as they watched the moon pass in front of the sun.  Many of the upper grades for whom earth science is a content standard extended lessons over the course of the next few weeks with fresh enthusiasm and a new understanding of the wonder of our solar system.
