National Honor Society
National Honor Society

Congratulations to our new National Honor Society candidates!  Our first meeting of the year will be Monday, September 17 after school in the library.  This meeting is for both returning members and new candidates.  We will go over the policies and hand out important information.  We look forward to seeing you there!


Test Fest

Start Planning for TEST FEST on Wednesday, October 10.

For many years, EHS has used the October National PSAT/NMSQT testing date to administer multiple tests.  EHS calls this day TEST FEST.  Students will be taking the 9th, 10th, and 11th grade PSAT tests on Wed., Oct. 10.  All of these tests are used to identify college readiness, and we use the results in our academic counseling process to help determine proper academic placement in classes.  The National Merit Scholarship is awarded to a small amount of students every year to help them fund their college experience.  In fact, the PSAT is sometimes referred to as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT).  Three benefits of taking the PSAT are—

  1. Since the junior year is the only year that students can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship, they might want to give it a practice shot during the sophomore year.
  2. It helps students connect with colleges.
  3. It better prepares students to take the SAT.


Test registration closes at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.  Students are considered registered when the OPTIONAL fee has been paid online through Jeffco Connect. 

Please take note that only students testing attend school on October 10.  Parents do not need to call the attendance line.  Buses will run on a normal schedule.

ON TEST DAY:

  • Students need to arrive by 7:25 a.m. with a calculator and #2 pencils.
  • Freshmen students will be done at approximately 10:45 a.m.Sophomores and juniors will finish at approximately 11:30 a.m.(Students with accommodations will finish at various times.)

As a reminder, all students will take a free PSAT or SAT in the spring as part of our state mandated testing.


College and Career Announcements

Sargent Morelli from the United States Marine Corp will have a table set up on Main Street on September 12th during lunch!!  Visit him if you are interested in hearing about NROTC and how it can help you pay for college!!!!

Reminder regarding the 2018-19 Eligibility policy.  The Final Eligibility reports were run on Friday and distributed to the Fall coaches. The athletes who had Fs on Friday are ineligible to compete this week, 9/10-9/15.

ELIGIBILITY POLICY

Evergreen High School has a no-F policy and will run weekly eligibility grade checks.

A school-wide report is run every Tuesday afternoon to check grades. An automated phone call home will notify parents that their student is on this week’s D and F list. The list of athletes with D and/or Fs is distributed to coaches and the Athletic Director.

Athletes must remain aware of their grades. They need to communicate and work directly with their teachers to get their grades up by Friday.

A Final Eligibility Report is run every Friday afternoon. Student athletes who have any Fs at this time will not be eligible the following Monday – Saturday.

There is no longer a “blue slip” policy. The grades posted on Fridays are the final determination of eligibility for the next week.

Ineligible student/athletes may go to practices and games; however, they may not miss any class time to attend games and may not dress in uniform for games until they have regained eligibility.
