Christmas Spirit Week starts on Tuesday! Check out the fun activities our Student Council has planned. All students are encouraged to have some fun and get involved!


*We will be watching a Christmas movie together on Friday. The movie we have chosen is "Jingle Jangle". If you have any concerns, or prefer for your student not to participate, please let us know in advance.

Christmas Choir Performance-December 25th!

Mark your calendars!! Our students have been busy preparing a few Christmas songs to share with our parents and community. This will be a pre-recorded performance that will be shown at the Ephesus SDA Church during church service on Christmas Sabbath, December 25th at 11:00AM. Parents can join the service in person or stream it on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/c/EphesusRichmond


We will be recording the Christmas songs at school next Wednesday, December 15th. We want all of our students to be in the video. We are asking that all students be present and on time on Wednesday, dressed neatly in their school uniforms ("dress wear") for the recording. Remember, this performance will be streamed during the church service on the 25th, so we want to make sure that all of our students look their best!

Calling All Volunteers!

The fruit will be arriving on Tuesday, December 14th. We will need help to unload the truck on Tuesday afternoon. If you are available and can help us out, please let Ms. Nugent know.

Fruit Pickup-Wednesday

Thank you so much for participating in our Fruit Fundraiser this year! We appreciate your support and commitment to EJA! For those who placed orders, the fruit will be available for pickup this coming Wednesday, December 15th. We will send out more information and directions for how to pick up your fruit next week, so please stay tuned!

FACTS Update

A big THANK YOU to everyone who signed up for FACTS by the deadline! We appreciate your time and commitment to this new process we are implementing. All pending agreements should be finalized by the end of today (Friday), so you should be able to make your December payments on time. If you have any questions or issues with the new website, just let us know.


Important: If you chose the invoice option, you may not receive the bill yet, but you may go ahead and make your payment as early as next week. Remember, payments are still due by the 15th of each month!

Chapel Attendance-Mandatory

Just a reminder that chapel begins at 8:15 on Zoom every Friday, and all students are required to attend. We encourage all of our students to join this short time with their school family in prayer and praise. Students who do not attend will be marked absent.

Winter Canned Food Drive

EJA students will have the opportunity to bring joy to our community this holiday season! We will be collecting canned food to donate to Feed More in Richmond. Students can bring in canned foods to help us reach our goal of "filling the bin"! The deadline has been extended to January 14th!
