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, Former President Trump has rejected request to testify in court claiming that he is a “private citizen who can no longer be deposed.” His lawyers argue that the Senate cannot act against him “because he holds no public office from which he can be removed”. Even though that is true, he can still be disqualified from future elections and never be able to RUN for public office again. The case is that Trump is “personally” responsible for the riot. Trump has rejected that saying his remarks were very appropriate. This whole trial begins on Tuesday and it looks like it’s going to be an interesting one.
Now to the juniors with the lunch
today is bowling vs CV, boys basketball home vs CV, and girls swimming league meet. Tomorrow is the boys swimming leagues and a wrestling home match.
Now back to the main desk
Attention Seniors!!! If you are interested in speaking at graduation, please see the guidelines posted on the Senior webpage or the Class of 2021 Schoology page. Speeches are due to Mrs. Peoples by Wednesday, March 31st. Please see Mrs. Brenner or Mr. Geyer if you have questions.
Have a great weekend Ephrata!
