From The Principal

As we have officially closed out the 2018-2019 school year, I would like to compliment our students on their success in academic endeavors and extra-curricular activities.  We know that students, parents, and staff members play key roles in the partnership of making a school what it is.  The unique bond of our Ebeling Family continues to make this an outstanding school!  As a staff, we are deeply appreciative for your consistent interest, commitment, and cooperation in providing the best learning environment for our students, and we wish you a restful and fun-filled Summer!

Over the next few months, our teachers will have opportunities to meet as professionals to continue the conversations and planning that lays the foundation for effective instruction. Teachers will work collaboratively on refining the implementation of effective instructional strategies to support our school improvement goals in reading, writing, science, social studies, and mathematics. Our theme for the 2019-2020 school year is:  Blast Off to Learning! At Ebeling, we continue to be dedicated in providing the best educational experience to each and every one of our children. 

Your Proud Principal,

Denise M. Bailey

  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
