    Everyday, Always Greet Learning Enthusiastically


    We, the Ebenezer Elementary School staff, will provide each and every child with opportunities to learn and grow in a warm, caring, and safe environment.  We will strive to motivate students to become self-sufficient and responsible citizens, prepared to soar into the future.  We will accomplish this goal by providing a resource-rich environment, which encourages community and parental involvement.  It is our desire to instill in our students the self-confidence needed to face life’s challenges.
