Hurricane Michael Fundraiser

Dance Marathon Updated

How can you help the Hurricane Michael communities?

As a student, you can attend the dance marathon! All proceeds will go directly to a local Panama City charity that is working towards relief efforts. If you are a part of a club or sports team, get a local business or family to sponsor you. This means that they pay X amount of dollars for each hour that you and/or your group members stay dancing!

As a parent and member of the community, we are in need of silent auction items. If you are a business owner, or know someone who is, we would love any charitable donations you’re able to offer for the auction. This can be a gift basket with free services provided, or something of that nature. If you own a vacation home and are willing to donate a weekend or few days stay in your home, an experience would be a welcomed addition to the silent auction items.

Please contact me, Mrs. Venema, or Mr. Ramaker with any questions you have. We look forward to a fun and successful day of fundraising!

Miss Teen Colorado USA

Two of our Evergreen Cougars participated in the national
Miss Teen Colorado USA pageant. Both Cheyanne Greeley and Lily Merwin competed in the finals of the competition.  As a statistic it is more likely to have a son play in a superbowl than a daughter to walk on the Miss USA stage, so we are very proud and honored to have two of our Cougars participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.  Congratulations Ladies!
Miss Colorado USA
