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, please remember that we have a full five days of school this week and then we're off until April 6th for spring break.

Second, please join us for spirit night at Moe's at Patterson Place on Thursday, March 26. If you mention that you're with Ephesus, we will receive a percentage of the proceeds.  And Ms. Sutton and I will both be there working behind the counter at some point between 5 and 8 PM. We hope to see you there!

Third, the Phillips Middle School Improvement Team (SIT) is looking for parent representatives.  If you will have a student at Phillips next year and want more information, please visit the Phillips website.
