2024 African-American Read In

Our hosts did a wonderful job representing ESA at the 2024 Annual African-American Read In.


ESA and Mrs. Montoya are proud to recognize two of our Eagles, Jacklyn Snyder and Makinley Dalziel (pictured from left to right), for being selected to perform as members of the North Carolina Elementary Honors Choir! Only 175 elementary students across the state were chosen for this choir and ESA had two of them!

Ballethnic Dance Company

With support from the United Arts Council's Artists in Schools program and the EPA, ESA students enjoyed Ballethnic Dance Company's Meet the Animals of the Leopard Tale on Thursday, February 29.  Ballethnic's talented dancers fuse classical ballet, jazz, modern and African dance into a high energy, action filled, and powerful performance.
