Dear Cougar Families, 

We could not have asked for better weather for last Friday's Graduation Ceremony at Red Rocks. After a couple years with snow and rain, the sun and calm air were most welcome. 

Shortly before the start of the ceremony, our incredible Girls Lacrosse team won the State Championship! Congratulations to the team and a special congratulations to Haley and Kileigh, our senior lacrosse players! They made a quick transition into gowns and arrived at Red Rocks just in time to walk across the stage. 

The night prior, our Girls Soccer team secured a spot in the State Championship game. We look forward to cheering on the team on Tuesday!

It is with a sense of pride that we send our graduates off to their future endeavors. This is a family; our graduates have the full Cougar community standing behind them as they build their future. 

This final week of school is one of transition. Though I suppose this transition starts with our seniors' Flower Ceremony. At the very end of this event, we do a changing of seats. Juniors move to the Senior section. Sophomores move to the Junior section and our Freshmen move to the Sophomore section. This change marks a movement through the academic year. It physically demonstrates maturation, a near-year through coursework, athletic seasons and key performances. 

Final exams conclude the year. We wish our students good luck on their culminating projects and assessments. 

This is the final Sunday Messenger of the 2023-24 school year. Families may expect a Special Messenger on May 24 with key dates for the 2024-25 school year.

We are so proud of everything our students have accomplished this year. We wish you all a restful and enjoyable summer! 

As we make our way through the year, we will continue to maintain our tradition of excellence by celebrating each student as an individual. This makes EHS an excellent school, an exceptional community and a model for extraordinary student culture.  


Warm regards, 

Dr. Skyler Artes, Principal
