Hello Cougar Families and Happy Sunday,

invest in ehs day

THE 1ST ANNUAL INVEST IN EHS DAY.

Tomorrow, November 4, is an important day for EHS. Our 1st annual Invest in EHS Day is a one-day fundraising campaign focused on raising money to support education at our school. Through the generous contributions of our community, we are looking to raise $40,000 for:

• Leading edge training programs for teachers, staff, and student leadership
• Continued investment in classroom technology
• Key classroom tools to maximize the learning experience

Thanks to the generosity of one of our donors, the overhead costs of the fundraiser are covered; therefore, 100% of the donated money goes to EHS. 

Tomorrow, please go to www.InvestinEHS.com to make your contribution. If every family contributes $36 for each of their EHS students, we will make our goal in one day. You are invited to follow along as the website tracks donations throughout the day. 

Thank you for supporting education at Evergreen High School.







Mrs. Prell

Today was the deadline for many colleges for early admission, which means Mrs. Janet Anderson-Prell helped our kids process 436 college applications. Janet is our College and Career Center coordinator, and does a fantastic job assisting our students with planning the next steps in life.
