Coin Wars for ADRA (Fundraising Drive)

Our last outreach project of the year will be to collect loose change for the Adventist Disaster and Relief Agency (ADRA). ADRA is our church's humanitarian organization. They deliver relief and development assistance to individuals in more than 118 countries. We will be raising money to support ADRA’s current relief efforts in Ukraine and around the world. From now until the last day of school, students can bring in any extra pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters, and yes, even dollars that they find laying around and add it to their class' donation bin. The class that raises the most money will receive a prize! To learn more about ADRA's impact, check out their website, click here

Last Day of School-In Person Party (June 3)

Friday, June 3rd is our last day of school! We know that Fridays are usually virtual, but we would like all of our students to join us in person at the school for an end of the year party. Students may arrive between 8:15-8:30. We will play games, eat food together, and there will be ice cream to finish up the day. This will be a fun-filled day for our students and a great way to close out the year! Parents, you are welcome to join us at 12:00 for food and ice cream fun. We will dismiss at 12:30.

School Picture Day

We will have a professional photographer coming in to take class and individual photos of the students during the week of May 23-27. We wanted to give you a heads up, so that students will be ready for their photos and "dressed to impress" on that day. Photos will be available for purchase, we will send more information and order forms soon.

Mad Scientist Summer Camp at EJA

We are so excited to announce that our friends at Acewall Scholars will be sponsoring a science summer camp right here at EJA! This exciting program will be run by the same teachers that have been working with our students in the tutoring program this year. It's a wonderful opportunity for students to continue learning in a fun and engaging way this summer. For more information, please email programs@acewallscholars.org.

8th Grade Graduation-June 2nd

We are excited to celebrate our 8th grade scholars on Thursday, June 2nd. For now, this will be an in-person event at the Ephesus SDA Church. We will continue to share information as it becomes available as far as capacity and social distancing guidelines.


8th grade parents, please continue to check your emails for the most up to date information from us.
