Celebrate 150 Years of Public Education in Eanes: 150 Years of Ringing the Children In

We’re kicking off a series of programs this fall to celebrate 150 years of public education in our community. Over the next several months we’ll hear from educators and students from various eras of Eanes history. It’s the story of our schools, but it’s also the story of our community.

Ellen Balthazar will kick off the series with the fall’s first presentation, sharing photographs, artifacts, and information about Eanes public schools from 1872-2022.
