Ephrata High School students had the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities during a school-wide Wellness Day. Over 20 indoor and outdoor activities were led by local fitness professionals, community members and high school teachers. There was cooking classes, self-defense, nature walk, football, kickball and many other activities.

High school seniors spent a portion of the day packing meals for Global Aid Network (GAiN), an international organization that offers relief and development projects to help people in need around the world.

In the weeks leading up to Wellness Day, high school students were participating in Penny Wars to raise additional funds for GAiN. Each grade has a designated collection jar in the high school cafeteria. Students are encouraged to drop pennies in the jars for their grade and drop silver coins and paper money in the other jars, which deducts from their competitors’ totals. On Wellness Day, the monies will be counted to see which grade will win.
