Ephrata AM 2018-4-12


Good Morning Ephrata, NAMES today is Thursday April 12! Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.
Everyday perfectly good food is being wasted in the school Cafeteria, but there is a solution. One problem, is that people don’t know about the Share Center, (you know, the fridge in the café by the food lines). But Mrs. Burkey’s Culinary classes are working hard to solve this problem. But they need your help, if you know what can be shared try to use it more often and if you not sure ask around. Or help someone who hasn’t used it. It only takes a few seconds to keep your unwanted sharable items from ending up in a landfill. Stay tuned for more updates on the Share Center and look out for items that are shareable. Give it a try.

Attention Juniors and Seniors:
Day 2 of Prom Ticket Sales will begin promptly at 2:45 this afternoon in room 116.  Here are some tips to help make this process easier for you: 
(1) You must be present to purchase a ticket.  If you have an EHS guest, they must also be present at the time you purchase the tickets.
(2) For your non-EHS prom date, you’ll need a copy of their photo I.D. and the completed (blue) guest information form, 
(3) You will be assigned table seating according to the order in which you purchase your tickets, so purchase tickets at the same time as your friends OR know their table number, and finally. . .
(4) Clear your obligations!! 
Oh, and don’t forget your money – it’s $60 per ticket—checks should be made payable to EASD with Class of 2019 in the memo line.

Wisconsin Congressman and Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan has announced that he will not being seeking reelection for this midterm elections this year. This fact is rather strange, as Paul Ryan is arguably one of the most well-known Republicans in contemporary American politics and it seems to be the case that he could easily take a victory in November. Many have speculated then, that his announcement could only mean that he is planning to announce his candidacy for President of the United States in the 2020 election.

On this day in 1861, the first shots of the Civil War are fired when Southern batteries under the command of General P.G.T. Beauregard attacked Fort Sumter. Of course, the causes of the Civil War can be traced back years earlier to the ongoing debate between most northern and southern states about the institution of slavery. Two day later, on April 14th, President Abraham Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers to help “quell the Southern insurrection”. 
Also on this day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt passed away a short while into his fourth term. :( rip
