If you haven’t heard the news already, legendary Lakers star Kobe Bryant and his daughter have tragically passed away due to a helicopter crash yesterday afternoon. Bryant was on his way to a basketball game when a fire erupted on board, causing the helicopter to crash somewhere in Calabasas. Kobe will go down in history as one of the most influential people to ever play American sports, as he’s inspired more people in his 30 year career then most do in a lifetime.


On this day in history in 1945, the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz is liberated. Soviet troops broke into the camp to a sight of unimaginable horror, as they witnessed the product of the most horrible war crimes ever committed in history. Thousands of prisoners were released, but even more perished due to the grotesque genocide of the Final Solution.

Love Interest

Heartbreak for just $3

If you are the creative type, it is just $5 for a personalized (state 5 things about the recipient) and have it sung as a ballad or uptempo.

Singing telegrams will be available to purchase during all lunch periods on January 23, 24, 28, and 30. So fill out a form at the table…just know the recipient’s name, homeroom, and current lunch period.

Attention all Ephrata Students:


We are changing things up this year!


For our kickoff assembly for our Mini-THON this year we are having a ‘Two part’ event. During Mountaineer Block on January 29th we will be holding an assembly for all students in which the boys will be doing a group dance.


Later that evening, we will be holding a ‘Diamonds in the Rough’ event showcasing all of their individual talents. (To see these talents you must come to the event in the evening.   We will not be showing these during the school assembly) This event will be from 6-8 pm in the High School Auditorium. The suggested minimum donation fee is $5 for students and $8 for adults.


Come out for a fun filled night to see who will be crowned King? From 1/21 to 1/27 you can raise money for each individual by putting money in their bins during your lunch which will go toward their grand total and help them compete to be the top fundraiser.


Attention all high school students:


Who wants to spend another, early morning hour doing Mountaineer Block activities where you have to tax your brain and actually think aside from academics?????......NO ONE. This Wednesday, January 29th the Ephrata Mini-THON will be holding a Stall Day. Bring in as many coins as possible and your homeroom teacher has to count all of them until you can start your Mountaineer Block activities. All of the proceeds go towards our grand total to send to the Four Diamonds fund in search of a cure for childhood cancer. More money equals less time for activities!!


Have a great day Ephrata!
