History 

Since 2012, United Way has worked in partnership with Enka Middle School to create a community support network for the students and families in the Enka-Candler community. The resource coordinator and support staff are based at Enka Middle in order to foster and organize strong relationships with both partner agencies and individual volunteers. They work closely with school leadership and staff to ensure that resources are leveraged and volunteers are recruited to meet the unique needs of the school, the students and their families, as well as the surrounding communities.
 
As a result of this partnership, students at Enka Middle now have access to additional supports, which include individual and small-group tutoring and mentoring, as well as a variety of out-of-school options. We also coordinate classes and events for parents and community members at the school.

Successful Students 

A major part of our work is to support student success at Enka Middle. One way we do so is by connecting committed community volunteers to serve as a tutor, a lunch buddy or a breakfast buddy for individual students or small groups of students. To learn more about this volunteer opportunity, visit http://www.handsonasheville.org/agency/detail/EnkaMiddle/
 
We will also continue our partnership this year with Access Family Services to provide additional behavioral and mental health services to students in need of extra support. These group and individual services will be available to students at Enka Middle and Enka Intermediate, and they will be available in English and in Spanish. 

Strong Families

Enka Middle School offers multiple ways for parents/guardians and families to get involved. This school year, we would like to highlight the following opportunities:
  • Homework Diners will continue this fall at Enka Middle starting on Tuesday, September 26. They will run every Tuesday from 9/26/2017 through 12/12/2017 and start back up again in the second semester. Homework Diners are a weekly family engagement events where families receive a free meal and homework support from teachers and volunteers. This is a great opportunity to form long-term relationships with students and their families and have a positive impact on their lives. Learn more about Homework Diners and sign up to volunteer here.
  • At Enka Middle, we will be starting up a Welcome Parents Call Tree based on the model created at Erwin Middle last year. A core group of parents will provide a welcome phone call to the parents of any incoming students during the school year.
