Happy Monday Cougar Families,

Thanks to all who attended the graduation ceremony on Friday. Best wishes to our graduates and congratulations Cougar families! This class was truly special and have raised the bar for us all.

See below for some important announcements and information:

River Trip - Looking for something amazing to do this summer? EHS’s River Expedition Club is getting amped for this year’s Rogue River, Oregon 6-day river rafting adventure.  A couple of last-minute spots opened up, and we’d love for a few more students to join the crew. 

  •          When: July 20 – July 26, 2017
  •          Where: The Wild and Scenic Rogue in Oregon – Roundtrip airfare from DIA to PDX included!
  •          How: The trip is fully supported and outfitted by a local non-profit and a professional outfitter. This is how we’re able to offer EHS students a significant discount.  Prices and itinerary are available at overexist.org  The price includes all airfare, transportation, equipment, food, and anything else students will need on the river.
  •          No camping or rafting experience necessary.  Limited availability!  Register by May 26, 2017 to secure a spot.
  •          See or email Ms. Moore for more information: mrmoore@jeffco.k12.co.us

Juniors – SAT Reports - Scores from the Colorado-provided April SAT® School Day (April 11) administration became available to students through their College Board account beginning May 17.  Some scores will be released later for reasons that include participation in makeup testing, a late receipt of answer sheets, missing information on the answer sheet, or other exception conditions that require additional attention. If a score is not available, students should check the Portal on occasion for updates. The Portal will update daily as additional individual student scores are released. All individual student scores for the CO SAT will be released by June 30. A detailed list of steps for student access to scores is linked here
