STEM Endorsement

EHS is seeking current juniors interested in earning a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) diploma endorsement.  The Colorado legislature recently enacted legislation that allows schools to enhance diplomas with a STEM endorsement that speaks to a student’s achievements and accomplishments in STEM-related areas.  

Skylar Gale, a senior at Evergreen High School, volunteered to participate in the pilot program of the STEM diploma endorsement program this year. One program requirement is the public presentation of a STEM capstone project. Skylar elected to present her project at the regional science fair won several special awards and easily qualified for the state competition. Last week she competed at the state fair and won the following special awards:

• Colorado Earth System Science Collaborative – Best Use of Data Award
• Colorado Mineral Society – 1st Place Senior Division, Best Earth Science Award
• Colorado Scientific Society – 2nd Place Senior Division, Excellence in Geology Award

An Exciting Message from a Community Member and our area’s Field Hockey Assistant Coach
My name is Meghan Hollenbach and I am an assistant coach for the Dakota Ridge High School Field Hockey team. This team actually accounts for all students in Jefferson County, which is why I'm reaching out to the community!
Last season we didn't have any interest from students in the Evergreen or Conifer school district and we want to try and advertise this great fall sport to more girls in the hopes that they want to come out and play!
In the fall, we practice down at the Rooney Road Sports Complex after school from 5pm - 7pm. I do live and work in Evergreen and commute down to the field after work, so I know it's a bit further of a drive than practices in other sports might be, but depending on interest we might be able to organize carpools or something!
Regards,
Meghan Hollenbach

If interested, please contact head coach Jessica Summers at summersjess9@gmail.com. Looking forward to seeing you all on the field next fall!
