Ephrata AM 12-13-18





Good Morning Ephrata, NAMES today is Thursday December 13!Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.




Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel to another country?  Do you love the exploring nature?

Come with the Spanish department to Costa Rica in June 2020!  In Costa Rica, you will enjoy beautiful tropical beaches, grand adventures to volcanoes and cloud forests, interact with the wonders of nature, all while experiencing culture through the food, people and a visit to a local school.

You do NOT have to be enrolled in Spanish classes to come, as our tour guides will be bi-lingual. 

For more information, stop and talk to one of the Spanish teachers and attend our information meeting on Tuesday, December 18th at 6:30 at COCALICO High School in room 301. Yes, at Cocalico high school.  We travel together with three other schools, so Mrs. Warfel and the other school chaperones will be present at the joint meeting.

The sooner you enroll, the cheaper it is and the first deadline is approaching soon.  Hope to see you there!

Person 1: I hope everyone brought some extra money with them today because this week is the week Student Council is playing Christmas music between each class period.

Person 2: well, why did they need to bring their money?

Person 1: glad you asked... because these aren’t your normal Christmas songs. These are some of the worst songs you’ve ever heard and will hope to never hear again.

Person 2: ohhhhhhh. Gotcha. So the money is to....

Person 1: make the music stop. There will be a student council member between each class hanging out in the main lobby. If we reach our goal of the day, the music will stop.

Person 2: what’s today’s goal?

Person 1: $50.00. so students, teachers, administrators, staff, anyone and everyone in this building, help us make the music stop!

Person 2: We know you've had a tough morning with all the silence, so here is something to fill your ears! Have a great Day Ephrata.
