Ephrata AM 1-18-22


Good Morning Ephrata NAMES today is Tuesday January 18, 2022. Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.
Do you hear that music playing? See those boys dancing down the hall? It’s the Mr. Four Diamonds Pageant and it’s headed right this way! Join us January 26th for a kick-off assembly that will knock your socks off. And then again after school for the talent portion that will be sure to dazzle your senses.
Now over to __________ with the news
Kentucky Fried Chicken has kicked off the new year across the U.S. this week by rolling out a plant-based chicken that is ‘still finger lickin’ good.’
Called Beyond Fried Chicken, the bucket of nuggets contain a non-meat ‘chicken’ that was developed by the Beyond Meat company. Created exclusively for KFC, the company says it is “packed with delicious flavor and the juicy satisfaction that you’d expect from KFC.”
The move follows a test run two years ago in Atlanta that was an overwhelming success, and sneak peeks in select restaurants in Nashville, Charlotte, and Southern California in 2020 that sold out in days.
With non-meat ‘chicken’ now available, KFC is calling it a a Kentucky Fried Miracle.
In other news, it’s national Winnie the Pooh Day. Now back to the Main Desk
You will not be receiving a paper copy of your 2nd semester schedule this year.  Instead, you should be sure to check it out through the PowerSchool portal asap.  You can do this by clicking on “My Schedule” from the menu on the left side of the home screen.
If you want to add a course in place of a study hall, check the open class listing which is available on the EHS Counseling webpage, and Schoology message your counselor with the name of the course and the period that you are switching with a study hall.
If you changed your mind and wish to drop a course, we need you to have your parent email your counselor with the requested change.
