COMING UP! THE 1ST ANNUAL INVEST IN EHS DAY.

This year, IT’S EASY TO INVEST IN EHS. By donating $36 for each of your students, you can help us reach our goal of $40,000 to fund investments in EHS technology, training, and classroom tools.

The EHSEF benefits ALL students at EHS. November 4th is your chance to show your financial support of our incredible Evergreen High School.

Hear below from EHS Staff Members about how the EHSEF has directly impacted their classroom...

Karla Gordon - English


“The Foundation has enabled me to access critical training for keeping on top of changes to AP curriculum by the College Board. Their funding also allows us to consistently access current and forward-thinking professional development.”


Bob Newkirk - Business


“The EHSEF has been indispensable in the development of our current Business program, e.g., by providing funding for the student-managed Investment Club portfolio.” 


Alex Kubin - Spanish


“The Foundation funded for the whole World Language department six high quality speakers, which are a very important tool for learning languages. They allow students to access language components such as tone, speech patterns, intonations, and accents.”

This Thursday is Halloween.  Please remember the following guidelines if you are planning on dressing up to celebrate at school.

  • Costume masks may not cover your face
  • No costume should promote drinking, drugs or unhealthy lifestyle choices or cause disruption to the learning environment.
  • Dress code applies:  No revealing clothing/costumes, No bare midriff, backs or exposed torsos.
  • Props can’t interfere with or disrupt normal school day activities and cannot represent or be types of weapons of any kind.
  • Please also be mindful of our students with allergies.  Many Halloween treats contain common allergens that can be harmful to students with allergies.

Let’s make it a safe and fun day!




Logo Contest Update

out with the old, in with the new

We had 19 students submit concepts for the new EHS logo contest. Thank you to all of those students for their excellent submissions! The Logo Selection committee has met and selected 7 of these concepts to move forward in the process. The next step is to partner with a professional graphic designer to help transform these awesome concepts into legit logo contenders! Stay tuned...
