While Elizabethtown is a small community, Elizabethtown Area High School is home to international students from numerous countries. These students are exchange students or immigrants, representing Mexico, Egypt, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Honduras, Burma, Thailand, Spain, Germany, and Sweden, along with several others. Many of them are furthering their English education and taking advantage of opportunities here at Elizabethtown.
Government classes at Elizabethtown Area High School ran a mock election the week of Oct. 29 through Nov. 2. Students elected Lou Barletta, Jess King, Tom Wolf, and John Fetterman. Monday through Thursday, students debated as the candidates, and Friday, the government classes ran a get-out-the-vote effort and elections.
The Elizabethtown Area High School Marching Band performs their show at every EAHS football game (on Friday nights). The Elizabethtown band is featured before home games and at half-time at away games. The band consists of 140 high school students and is directed by Mr. Steven Barraclough. This year’s show is called Fantasy, and includes music from Game of Thrones, How to Train Your Dragon, Wicked, and E.T. -The Extra Terrestrial.

Moviemaking is all economics. Unfortunately good economics often leads to mediocre film. It is naive to not believe that the largest profits are now found in the release of sequels, reboots, or movies tied together in the same shared universe. While relatively unique films like Titanic and Avatar both sit at the highest grossing films of all time, the next ten movies on that same list are either part of a shared universe or are a direct sequel to a previous film.
