Seal of Biliteracy

The Jeffco Seal of Biliteracy is a recognition for students who can demonstrate a high level of proficiency in at least one World Language and English by high school graduation.

During this period of Hybrid and Remote Learning, AAPPL at-home proficiency testing will be available.

While students do not need to be enrolled in a World Language course, students must still meet specific criteria. Please see the attached letter for details.

Yearbook Photos Needed

Hey EHS students! Do you participate in an activity that isn't related to a school sport or club? Do you rock climb, dance, kayak, fly planes, figure skate, or fly fish? This list is endless. Yearbook wants your pictures! Make sure your awesome talent is represented in this year's memorable book.



Yearbook is also looking for pictures from EHS students who attend Warren Tech. We know there is a lot of amazing work being done on that campus. If you have any great shots of the cool things you do please send them to Ms. Graham.

Please email your photos to amy.graham@jeffco.k12.co.us
