Enos School "Adopt-a-School"


Enos School "Adopt-a-School"

The Partnership

Enos Elementary

The original Enos Elementary School building was replaced by a new education facility in 2013.

SIU School of Medicine has been part of the Springfield Public School District #186 Partners in Education Adopt-a-School program since 1986. A volunteer committee of employees coordinate efforts each year. In April 2010, the Enos committee received the "Organization Agent of Service" award, co-sponsored by the Springfield Junior League and the University of Illinois Springfield. The award celebrates the achievements of local volunteers.

About Enos

Enos has kindergarten through fifth grade students. Many of the students come from economically disadvantaged homes. The school is located one block northwest of SIU's 801 N. Rutledge building (at 524 W. Elliott).

We are always looking for volunteers from SIU. We can use almost any area of interest or skill. Sometimes the best thing to offer is yourself and a bit of time. Employees and students can fill out the volunteer form and return to Tracey Smith, 913 N. Rutledge, MC 9671, or tsmith@siumed.edu.
