And now over to ____________ with the news




In today’s news, Tom Brady wins yet another super bowl with a 31-9 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. While the Chiefs came into the post-season as the top seed in the AFC Conference, Tampa Bay were the NFC’s fifth seed and became the first wildcard team to win a Super Bowl since the Green Bay Packers 10 years ago. This was his 10th appearance in a super bowl and his 7th super bowl win. Brady now has more Super Bowl wins than any single NFL franchise and was named the super bowl’s Most Valuable Player for a record-extending fifth time.

Now back to the main desk


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.


Have a great week Ephrata!
