EHS announcements 1/26/2017


Hi and welcome to the pirateer announcements for the week of January 26th.

Today you have a wonderful opportunity to hear a guest speaker during your enrichment time. Here is a preview of what Mr. Hernandez offers in the library.


Here at Englewood high school, Officer Watts acts as our school resource officer and makes sure that we all are prepared for any threats that may occur at this school. Here are his thoughts.


There are so many issues around financial aid and seniors may seem overwhelmed. The tool, known as Lend E-D-U Financial Aid Hotline, is a free text-in service designed to quickly answer any question related to financial aid, grants, scholarships, and student loans.

Use the hotline number at (302) 278-4037, and you will receive a detailed response from the team within 15 minutes.

We spoke to Mr. Maschka about financial aid and how important it is.


Job Readiness Day on Friday, January 27th, is a FREE day of workshops to support you in meeting your New Year goals and getting the job you want.

Talk to experts from nearly a dozen organizations in the Denver area and get answers to all your job-related questions. It is at Mile High United Way, 711 Park Ave W, Denver from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Free parking is available, and lunch will be provided. RSVP today by following the link on thepirateer-dot-com. Ms. Hershey tells us all about it.


Choir Auditions are now underway for the 2017 – 2018 vocal groups. Will you be the next voice in ETC, Expressions, Select or EHS/Lady Pirate Singers?

We had 2 juniors, Jakob Garcia and Joseph Westerfield, who auditioned and were selected to All-State Orchestra, which is from Feb 9-11 AND All-State Band, which is from March 30- April 1 as percussionists. To make one group is VERY difficult, to get into 2 is incredible!
