Ephrata AM 2-4-21





Good Morning Ephrata NAMES today is Thursday Feb 4, 2021. Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.




Attention SENIORS!  The application portal for the Ephrata National Bank scholarships is now open.  Last year, over $1.6 million was awarded to EHS seniors through these scholarships.  Visit www.epnb.com to apply for the Hibshman, Wolf, Mellinger, and Brossman scholarships.  Be sure to complete your application and submit all required materials by March 31st!


Do you like to engage in civil debate? Are you interested in social studies and current events? Do you want to improve your oratorical skills, develop your ability to think critically, and become a persuasive public speaker? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider joining Ephrata’s debate team! To learn more, join the debate club Schoology group using this access code: 5FV8-9RMF-QD56C or stop by room 127 and talk to Mr. Price.


This important announcement is for any senior whose prospective college requires a mid-year transcript.  While the majority of colleges do not require these, you should double check to see if your school needs an updated transcript.  If so, login to Naviance to request one ASAP.  There are very specific instructions on how to request this on the opening screen in Naviance.  You will also find these instructions in Schoology updates.


If you have any questions, stop by the counseling office to check with Mrs. Ditzler.


And now over to ____________ with the news




In today’s news, SpaceX has launched another one of its starship prototypes, and once again just failed to pull off the landing. The unmanned vehicle climbed to 6 miles above the Texas Gulf coast, and then descended to try to put down under control a short distance from where it had lifted off. The 50m tall Starship is a concept for future space transportation. Elon Musk believes that once fully developed, the vehicle will be capable of taking people to the Moon and Mars. It could also take people around the world quickly. Even though it blew up, SpaceX said a huge amount of data would be gained from it.
