Welcome Message

Welcome to Ephesus Elementary, home of the Roadrunners! We currently serve approximately 450 students from Pre-K through 5th grade in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School district. Our mission is to welcome all, inspire each, and grow togetherWe will do this by providing an engaging, safe, and empowering community that values the academic, social, and emotional growth of all students. 

From the Principal

First, we will host "Bring and Adult to Lunch Day" on Tuesday, September 16.  If you would like to join your child, please check with the classroom teacher about the time and sign in as a visitor in the main office.  The cost of an adult meal is $3.60.  I hope to see you on Tuesday!

Second, please note that Thursday, September 18 is our first delayed opening.  We appreciate the time this gives our staff for meaningful professional development opportunities.  Students should arrive at school between 9:25 and 9:50 AM.  

Third, please remember that the PTA is hosting its biggest and only fundraiser for the year.  The Walk for Education campaign is well under way!  Can we beat last year's efforts to raise $30,000?  Please send in your child's envelope as soon as possible and remember to request matching gifts from your employers if possible.  We will have a fund raising update at the PTA meeting this Friday, September 19 from 7:30-8:30 AM in the media center.

And finally, please re-link your Harris Teeter VIC card to Ephesus Elementary, school #1743.  You must re-link it every August.  Please encourage family and friends to do the same, even if they are out of state.

Thank you for taking the time to read to this message.  I hope you have a great week!
