The Ephrata Area School District recently received a donation - over $3,500 - from the GIANT Company to be used within the Food Services Department. Through the Feeding School Kids initiative, the GIANT Company and its customers raised money to address the issue of childhood hunger throughout local public school districts in the communities they serve. Customers at GIANT stores were invited to round up their grocery purchases to the nearest dollar or convert their “choice” points into a donation for their local public schools’ food programs. “We are grateful for this donation. It will aid in ensuring that all students in the District have adequate access to meals, helping students to reach their full potential,” stated District Food Service Director Teri Gamez. (Students and staff pose for a photo with a GIANT Company representative.)

Congratulations to Lori Long who was named the VFW Teacher of the Year at the local, district, and state levels! Mrs. Long is a true example of #MountsPride! She has taught for nearly 34 years at EASD and served in every one of our elementary schools. This is a very well deserved recognition, especially as she looks forward to retirement at the end of this school year.

The Shadow A Student Challenge was in full swing this week as EASD administrators collaborated with students to explore the question: What is it like to be a student for a day? Engaging with empathy and an open mind, administrators actively embraced the student perspective. They will subsequently reflect on these experiences to ensure that #EASDLifeReady learning is successfully carried out.

Akron first-graders are learning how biblioburros, packhorse librarians, boats, camels, and more bring books to children around the world. Although there were no four-legged deliveries here, Akron students loved their special bookmobile visit from the Lancaster Library.
