Enka Intermediate Needs Your Support

Enka Intermediate School is starting a new program called In-School Clubs.

Often, clubs are only available to students who have the money for club fees and the possibility of regular after-school transportation. Enka Intermediate wanted to make it possible for ALL students to participate in some sort of extracurricular activity.

Clubs meet from 10:15 - 11:15 AM every early release day, which occur about once per month.  Clubs are lead by teachers, community volunteers and other school staff and are completely free for every student.
