Trunk or Treat
Hello Eno River Academy students and families. The high school National Honors Society will be hosting their second annual Trunk or Treat in the lower school parking lot on October 28th from 2 to 4pm. Please come out and either decorate a trunk or just come trunk or treat. If you want to sign up to decorate a trunk, please fill out the form below. We are also asking for candy donations so that clubs and other organizations don’t have to purchase it all out of their club funds. If you want to donate candy, there will be a bin set up in the front office of the high school from September 5th to October 26th.

Hispanic Heritage Month

We want to welcome you and your student(s) to our 2nd Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival on September 21st from 4-6 pm which will take place outside of the Elementary and Middle school. We will be having food, music, dance and arts/crafts. This is designed for all school aged children (elementary/middle and high school). This is put on entirely by the Spanish III and IV class students. Please show your support for their hard work! We look forward to celebrating the rich and unique heritage that makes up our wonderful country. There will be some restaurant gift card door prizes for those who check in and get a raffle ticket (you have to be present to win). ¡VAMOS A CELEBRAR!


We need your help! If you are willing and able to support our event, we would greatly appreciate it! We have two sign up genius options that you can click below to help with food and/or art supplies or scan the QR code.
