We are beyond thrilled to extend an invitation to you for a spine-tingling and uproarious production of "The Addams Family" musical! Our incredible cast and crew from Evergreen High School and Conifer High School have been concocting a bewitching blend of kookiness, spookiness, and all-around fun that is sure to leave you howling with delight.



**Ticket Information:**

We're bubbling with excitement to share the magic of "The Addams Family" musical with you. Summon your friends, family, or any brave souls ready for enchanting entertainment. Snag your tickets now at Evergreenhstheatre.ticketleap.com


Additionally, local restaurants are supporting the show with these offers. 

For the month of March:




Prepare yourselves for a ghoulishly good time as we bring the eerie charm of the Addams Family to life on stage. Witness the passionate love story of Gomez and Morticia, the peculiar romance of Wednesday, and the delightful antics of Uncle Fester, Grandma, and Pugsley. Every moment is a delightfully dark spectacle filled with catchy musical numbers, witty humor, and a touch of macabre charm.

Congratulations to our outstanding Science teacher, Erika DuRoss!

Ms. DuRoss has been chosen to be a 2024/25 Polar STEAM Fellow. This is an incredible accomplishment. Over the next year, Ms. DuRoss will collaborate virtually and in person with a polar researcher from the University of Washington to co-create an educational resource focusing on the interpretation of past climate using ice records. She will be joining the research team at the NSF Ice Core Facility, where she will contribute to processing and analyzing ice core stratigraphy.

The Fellowship will enrich her work with our students and community. This achievement underscores Ms. DuRoss's commitment to exploration, science education and authentic collaboration.

Track Registration is now open! Wondering why should you run track?

You'll never know what you can accomplish until you try it!

Meets are fun, high-energy co-ed experiences. There are no cuts and no time spent "on the bench." Every athlete can train hard and compete hard. The coaches are great. Colorado spring weather is perfect for running.

Yummy snacks (yes, we have fruit snacks).

And... IT'S FUN!


Track parent information night is Thursday, February 29th at 6:00 at the High School.
