Hello Cougar Families and Happy Sunday,

A big thanks to our Facilities Manager, Judy Grounds, and her crew for working during the snow days clearing snow and keeping our building safe, warm, and dry. You guys went above and beyond. Thank you.

Spring Testing

Testing

We have also included them in this Messenger (PSAT 9 Family Letter 2019; PSAT 10 Family Letter 2019; & SAT 11 Family Letter 2019) To be taken to the family calendar CLICK HERE . You will be able to view the daily schedule for these testing weeks.

All students testing need #2 pencils, a calculator, and juniors need their school ID.


Students testing with ACCOMMODATIONS should plan on being at school longer than their grade level peers, and will likely miss the lunch period.  Please have your student speak to Mrs. Speers if they have specific questions.

All students will have a modified 7 period schedule on both days. Please note that students who skip these tests or are called out as sick will be expected to make up testing and may be pulled out of class to complete testing.

The EHS Weekly Messenger will be featuring information and updates from the Evergreen High School Education Foundation. The EHSEF has served our school community for over a decade now, and has been instrumental in funding much of the technology that currently exists at EHS. The mission of this group, however, extends beyond technology to include the support of teacher training and tools for classroom use. Some recent examples include:

• Sending two EHS faculty members to a premier education conference in March of 2019.
• Support of the technological and curricular needs of the new-look EHS Business Program.

Without the efforts of this group, EHS would simply not be as successful as we are. Please consider financially supporting the Evergreen High School Education Foundation by donating HERE.

The EHSEF will be seeking new board members for the 2019/2020 school year! If interested, please contact EHSF Board President Dan O’Neil at dan31638@gmail.com or 303-332-8170.
