Ephrata AM 10-12-18






Good Morning Ephrata, NAMES today is Friday Oct 12! Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.




Beginning Monday, Ephrata High School will be welcoming 25 students from our sister city of Eberbach, Germany.  They will be arriving Saturday night, and if their flight arrives on time, they may even find the energy after a long flight, to show up at the Homecoming Dance.  Whether or not that happens, they will be coming to school with their American host brother or sister for the next two weeks.  Many of them will be in your classes and in your lunches. They may even try to participate in your after school activities.  They will be fascinated to see their first American Football Game on October 26th following an American Tailigating Party hosted by the National German Society.  While they are here they will visit historic Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and New York City.  They will visit the Ephrata Cloister and be welcomed by the mayor.  They will visit a one-room Amish School House and enjoy an Amish meal on a farm.  Hopefully during their stay, you as a student body, will reach out and welcome them.  Introduce yourselves and make them feel welcome.  They’ve been working at learning English a long time, so you don’t need to fear a language barrier.  But if you’re learning German, try out your skills!  I hope you enjoy learning to know them and realize all the similarities we share with our German friends! 

Thanks - Frau Wise


This message is for all students who will be attending the homecoming dance on Saturday. Appropriate behavior, including the type of dancing, is expected of all students and guests. Dances are school functions and proper attire and behavior are expected. If there is an issue with the manner in which someone is dancing, you will have an opportunity to fix the issue, but if you are addressed about it a second time, you will be asked to leave the dance and there will be possible disciplinary consequences.

State Governor Rick Scott says hurricane Michael left "unimaginable destruction" as it plowed into coastal areas of Florida. "So many lives have been changed forever," he said. "So many families have lost everything." The worst hit areas of Florida's northwest coast saw houses ripped from their foundations, trees felled, and power lines strewn across streets. Hurricane Michael struck on Wednesday with winds of 155 mph. It weakened to a storm as it moved inland towards the north-east, but at least six people have died, most of them in Florida.
