Finals Care Packages

What is a Finals Care Package?

A bag full of 8 - 10 treats including drinks, granola bars, candy, cookies, snacks and chips that await your student at his/her first exam class room the first day of Winter and Spring Finals. All D'Evelyn students are eligible and last year more than two thirds of the student body participated. (This is also the only fundraiser for Prom and Senior Banquet.)

What about food allergies?

All Finals Care Packages are nut free. You may also order a Dairy and Gluten Free bag if necessary.

How and when do I order them for my student?

During registration, when you are paying your fees, Finals Care Packages are listed as an optional fee. Select Regular or Dairy/Gluten Free Finals Care Package for each of your students. Both semesters are sold as one unit, costing $22.

What about sending a personal note with my student's package?

About a month before the end of the semester, you will receive an email giving you an option to send in a personalized note of encouragement. You will need to print this note out at home and send it to the office to be included in your student's bag. Don't worry, if you run out of time, those students who do not receive a personal note will still receive a standard note of encouragement.

What if I forget to order a package?

If you forget to order a package, you may be able to order and pay for one the week before Finals, making sure payment is received by that Wednesday prior. At that time each bag will be $15. We try to buy enough extra goodies for a few latecomers, but this option cannot be guaranteed. Contact the Financial Secretary directly to purchase bags late.

How can I get involved with stuffing the bags?

This is a fun project to help with and involves just a couple of hours the day before the first day of Finals each semester. Volunteers meet in the cafeteria around 12:45 p.m., stuff the bags, then deliver them to the classrooms mostly during seventh hour.

I still have questions, who can I contact?
