Come Meet and Greet our new Principal

posted Apr 11, 2018, 7:50 AM by 311 Ees   [ updated Apr 13, 2018, 10:49 AM by Tori Mazur ]

Mr. Eric Taylor, our incoming principal, will be at Ephesus to meet and greet our Ephesus families.  Come welcome Mr. Taylor to our roadrunner community in our library on Monday, April 16 at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Mr. Eric Taylor

My name is Eric Taylor and I am ecstatic to be hired as the new principal of such an amazing school. Most recently I have served as the Principal of Alamance Elementary for the past 4 years. I have 15 years of teaching and administrative experience in which 8 of those years have been at the elementary level. I believe that each day teachers and administrators should be the “Teacher or Principal they want for their own child.” I also believe that each day we should engage students in relevant learning experiences that are preparing them for the global society we live in today.


I am a graduate of Southern and Oral Roberts Universities. I love sports and my favorite teams are any team from the city of Houston, TX where I was born and raised. I look forward to joining the Ephesus community in the near future.

Computer Science Education Week starts Monday!

posted Dec 2, 2017, 5:36 PM by Tori Mazur

Students can click on our Hour of Code website to find this year's theme of "Coding the Machines" and a variety of robot-themed coding options. Hour of Code (tm) is a worldwide event during Computer Science Education Week in which students participate in computer science activities.  Ephesus students will take their coding skills to the next level with physical computing. Every classroom will have hands-on experiences as they visit the multi-purpose room for an hour of challenges with robots that encourage creativity and collaboration.  

Grades two through five also have a link in an Hour of Code folder in Seesaw.  We encourage families to explore these resources together and talk through the thinking involved in the challenges with their children.  These resources are web-based and therefore available on any internet-connected device.  Some will load faster than others.  Some are also available as mobile apps.  Please check your devices "store" for availability.  Feel free to create an account for your child at home so they can continue their computational thinking journey beyond an hour.
