~Parents-As the year comes to a close, just a friendly reminder to go in and check to see if you have any fees due for your student. Some of you have “Lunch Loans” due which is if your student runs out of money in their Meal Pay Plus account they are allowed to receive a “Lunch Loan” through the Principal account. When this happens the money is owed to the school and adding money into the Meal Pay Plus account will NOT offset the lunch loan. Parents will need to log on to Parent Portal through and either use their user name and password or select “Pay Student Fee without a Login”. This will allow you to access your student information using their student ID number and see if they have any fees due. You are not required to pay any fee listed with “OPT” at the beginning. These are optional fees. The Lunch Loan should indicate the date the loan was given. If not paid by the end of the school year, this fee will automatically generate into a fine.

~Parents we need your connections! After Prom is in dire need of (2) powerful projectors or at least (1) to borrow the evening of April 22nd. Ideally, we need ones that are 1080P and have 7,000 Lumens. Yes, we know that is strong. However, we've experimented with projectors with 3,000 Lumens and our picture were too washed out. If you have something in between, that may work also. If you own one, know where we could borrow one, or have a lead on one, PLEASE get in touch with Eileen Schoenberger @ 303-856-8250 right away. Thank you for taking the time to help.

~ Prom and After Prom is Saturday 4/22/17 and it is going to be another spectacular year! Everything you want to know about these events can be found on our school website under ACTIVITIES. Please remember to get your forms in ASAP even if you are undecided at the moment. We appreciate your help.

~As you know, Prom is just around the corner! We are looking for some parent helpers at Prom. If you aren't able to stay up all night for after prom, we have a deal for you! Join us for an exciting evening of beautiful women in the latest style dresses alongside well-mannered men in tuxedos! All you need to do is sign up below to become a chaperone at Prom! We welcome men and women! Make it a date night at the D'Evelyn 2017 Galaxy Gala Prom! Call Angela Hoffman at 303-808-5698 with questions, or email
