Hello Cougar Families and Happy Sunday,

First, a huge 'Thank You' to Jefferson County Voters for the passage of 5A and 5B. We here at Evergreen High School are so thankful for these extra resources to continue our mission of excellence in education. 

Second, there are two very important opportunities for input detailed in this week’s messenger.  The School Start Time Survey and Family and School Partnership Survey will be sent out to families in upcoming weeks. Please consider taking a few minutes to complete these.

We wish all a safe, restful and wonderful Thanksgiving Break!

See below for some important announcements and info.

All-State Choir

This year we had 7 students selected for the 2019 Colorado All State Choir!  Please congratulate the following students: Justin Arndt, Ryan Fesenmeyer, Katherine Hood, Luke Johnson (2nd year), Rachel Malpass, Max McCord, and Trevor Targowski (2nd year).  The audition for All-State Choir is extremely difficult, it is in many ways more demanding than many college auditions, and these students put a lot of time and effort into their preparation.  I am extremely proud of these individuals.  Congratulations on this big accomplishment!
