  • It is very important that all parents of 1st-5th grade students use the Parent Portal this 14-15 school term. Progress Reports and Report Cards must be accessed through the Parent Portal. Hard copies will not be sent home for grades 1-5. Kindergarten Progress Reports and Report Card hard copies will be sent home. 
    The Parent Portal may be accessed by using the Smartphone App or by computer. Many parents prefer the Smartphone App! The Parent Portal is an excellent tool for "keeping up" with your child's progress. We encourage you to use this communication tool!
    Here is how to get your confidential Parent Portal account:
    • See Tracy Waldhour, EES data clerk, for your personal log-in information. She must give it to you in person due to confidentiality. She will be available at Open House and each day during school hours to assist you. 
    • Once you log on to Parent Portal, you will change your password.
    • Write your new password down because you will need it to access your student/s' grades. 
    • Using your Parent Portal account will allow you the ability to see all your children's grades in 1st-12th grade.

  • Support EES with your Parker's PumpPal card!
    The new Fueling the Community program at Parker’s donates one cent from every gallon of gas sold on the first Wednesday of every month at Parker’s locations throughout the area.

     As a PumpPal member, you can designate our school as your preferred recipient of charitable donations. Just click the link to add our school’s code number to your PumpPal profile: www.ParkerSav.com . Our school can receive 1 cent per gallon no matter which store or county that you purchase your gas, as  long as you purchase it on Wednesday!

    Plus, remember that every time you buy gas at Parker’s on the first Wednesday of the month, you will help your school of choice. Thank you for your support and for making a difference in local schools!

  • Car Pick Up/Drop Off   Car Riders
    Please be patient as parents of our new students park and walk their child/children to classrooms on the first day. We will be opening car doors as usual if you will remain in the car line in the mornings and afternoons. While the line will be long during the first week, remember that it becomes more bearable once students learn their car numbers and many begin to ride the bus after the initial first days. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We have excellent bus drivers for those who choose to ride the school bus.

A note from our Principal
“The wild hogs ate our lunch” is a remembrance from a former student of the Ebenezer Elementary One Room School that is located on site. It serves the school and community as a Living History project. Ebenezer Alive students frequently tour it and enjoy the remembrances of past students. The school’s last teacher, Mrs. Lorene Rountree, taught in it during the 1940’s, and current students enjoy a yearly “Grandparents Tea” there. Read more
