    Dear Parents, Guardians, Alumni, Students and Friends: 

    The Ewing Public Education Foundation (EPEF or Foundation) celebrates 27 years of providing grants to Ewing Public Schools for innovative educational programs. EPEF is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize community support, commitment, and resources to help improve the quality of education in Ewing Public Schools. The Foundation also seeks to match corporate organizational donors with teachers to find additional projects of mutual interest. 

    EPEF provides grants to teachers and staff members and allocates scholarships to graduating Ewing High School students through fund-raising activities, corporate and institutional sponsorship, and individual donations. These programs enhance our children’s educational experience without the use of additional taxpayer dollars. The grants recognize the need for innovative educational opportunities in a variety of areas, inspiring the creativity of our educators and enabling them to engage the students in exciting and different ways. Scholarships provide the graduating seniors from EHS to continue their educational endeavors in colleges, universities, or vocational institutions. 

    As we continue to navigate through these challenging times, EPEF has stayed steadfast to our mission by providing grants to educators’ innovative programs regardless of the pandemic. In the past ten years, the Foundation has awarded grants totaling $300,789 and in 2022 awarded $8,000 in scholarships to our graduating EHS students. 

    The Foundation is a founding member of the New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership and a member of the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce. 

    EPEF continues to expand its assistance to teachers, staff members, and students with the support of individuals, businesses, and corporate sponsors. Our success depends on your contribution. Your contribution of $25 or more will allow us to expand our commitment to Ewing Public Schools educators and students.

    For additional information about the Foundation and to make a tax-deductible contribution, visit EPEF’s website at www.epef.org. Like our Facebook page for updates and additional information. Thank you for your support. 

    Sincerely, 

    Roomana Khan, President

    October 2022 GoodNews Article:

    Through the generosity of Ewing Public Education Foundation (EPEF), a grant was awarded to Integrated Preschool teacher Lisa Kenehan and speech pathologist Lisa Rogers in the 2019-2020 school year to bring Dinosaurs Rock School Assembly to Antheil Elementary School’s preschool program. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this interactive event was postponed indefinitely. On May 19, 2022, EPEF’s continued support allowed this interactive and hands-on traveling museum to visit Antheil's four preschool classes and two grade-level classes. The Dinosaurs Rock assembly provided our young learners with replicas of dinosaur eggs, bones, claws, teeth and footprints and some genuine fossils, many of which the children could touch. The afternoon ended with each child participating in a genuine fossil dig where they were able to bring fossil treasures home. This opportunity allowed the preschool students to come together as a group and many of their eyes lit up as they stood next to these life-size fossils. A special thank you to Superintendent Michael Nitti, Special Education Supervisor Harry Louth,  Special Education Supervisor Maria Petsos, Principal Kip Harrison and EPEF’s Roomana Khan for sharing in this special event and to Mrs. Antoinetta Craig and Mr. Harrison for their assistance with all the details.
