Enlightium needs your help! Our team enjoys using the "live stream" feature on our official Youtube channel for events such as the recent National Honor Society Ceremony and the upcoming Graduation Ceremony. A Youtube link is simple to share with other families, and the audio and video quality is great.

Youtube recently updated its terms so that only channels with 1,000+ subscribers can use the live stream feature from a mobile device. We currently have less than 500 subscribers. But you can help! Please ask everyone in your household who has their own Gmail account to subscribe to Enlightium’s Youtube channel. Click here to go to our channel and click the red "Subscribe" button. This is not an attempt to get more subscribers, but an effort to use one of our greatest resources to best serve your family.
