The PTA has a fun-filled week planned for the students. They will celebrate Literacy Week Feb. 27-March 3. March 2 is Dr. Seuss’s birthday—what better way to celebrate than to read? Did you know Dr. Seuss would be 113 this year? While he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on in the pages of his books. He forever changed the way children’s books were written and continues to inspire generations. The school will have a different activity each day.

National School Breakfast Week is coming March 6-10. A time to celebrate school breakfast and remind parents, students and staff of the importance of eating a healthy breakfast every day. We will be sending home a note next week about this. We have amazing cooks at our school that work hard to provide a healthy and delicious breakfast for our students.
Ephraim Middle School
Ephraim Middle School had College Awareness Week last week, Feb. 21-24. In each homeroom teachers shared some of their college experiences. On Wednesday, the eighth graders visited the high school to learn about Career and Technical Education classes. Students also attended an assembly with speaker Earl Kauffman, a former BYU football player. An injury squashed Kauffman’s dream of playing in the NFL. He shared how important getting that college education turned out to be.
