We have begun to process refunds for spring sports fees, prom and the $65.00 for graduation.  We are working to manually process these reimbursements one-by-one, so please accept our apologies that this process will take some time to complete, as we have 100s of students that need to be refunded.

SENIOR HIGH STUDENTS:

All students in grades 9-12 starting in Fall 2020:
Like running? Want to get in shape doing a sport that’s both individual and team based?  Join the DHS XC team!  Since summer is about slowly building up your mileage and slowly increasing the intensity of your workouts as the start of school gets closer, you will receive suggested workouts starting in June 2020.

 Dennison Elementary PTA Scholarship for High School Seniors

 Colorado Plans to Offer next year’s Seniors Free SAT Tests on a School Day Next Fall (2020/2021 School Year). More information will be available as it is communicated by the CDE.

 DAZZLING JAGS:

The Female Senior Student Athlete of the Week is Cassidy Simpson!  Cassidy has had a pretty good Senior Year, all considering!  Cassidy is the Student Body Vice President, a 4.0 plus student, as well as a Boettcher Scholarship Recipient.  Cassidy is a starter on the Girls Basketball Team, and has also spent some time on the Girls Volleyball Team.  Cassidy was a key member of the DHS Track Team.  Cassidy’s Head Coach Lisa Porter says that Cassidy is a great all-around athlete which makes her a very versatile athlete on the Jaguar Track Team.  She is talented in the 400, sprints, high jumping, and is a true asset to any of the Jaguar Relay teams.  Well done Cassidy.

 Sebastian Medina is a senior baseball player who has committed four years to our program.  His dedication to his team has been a true testament of his character.  Sebastian is not a statistic or an award winner type of player.  He has been the player who is reliable, has a positive attitude, and is the hardest worker.  A great team is not just the players with the stats but the athletes that lead and encourage teammates everyday at practice and during games.  Sebastian is that player that leads by example everyday on and off the field to help his teammates.  As his coach, I have never had to question his work ethic, dedication or commitment to our baseball program.  It has been a pleasure to teach and coach this young man.  I respect him as a person and trust his integrity will carry him far in life.  Thank you Sebastian and congratulations.

 PARENTS:

 D'Evelyn Seniors and Parents -  We want to keep the positivity up we had from starting so many new traditions like painting our parking spots and setting records for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  We are starting another new tradition: Senior Sweepstakes!  We've collected some great prizes we will be giving away through the D'Evelyn Seniors Instagram page, @develyn2020, starting Monday, May 4th.  Each day (Monday, May 4th through Friday, May 8th) at 4:30pm, Student Council representatives will host an Instagram Live give-away of prizes to help you embark on the next chapter of your life.  All members of the Class of 2020 are automatically entered.  You could win a smart TV, Alexa microwaves, Alexa Echo Dot, waterproof speakers, Yeti Ramblers, and much much more!  Be sure to follow us and check in Instagram Live to know if you've won!  

 SUPPORT D'EVELYN SUPPORTERS!  Our local business supporters who have so generously given to the D’Evelyn community are now in need of your support.  Let us illustrate to them how incredibly grateful we are for their past generosity by frequenting their business.  Now is the opportune time to give back to those who have charitably donated to our school.  To see the list go Support for DEF Local Businesses List.

 Hi, my name is Phoenix Lee, a sophomore at D'Evelyn High School. I am committed to giving back to the community, and one way to do so is by supporting the local businesses of Jefferson County and providing meals for the hospitals, health care workers, and EMTs during this time of uncertainty. I have created a GoFundMe fundraiser in use of buying food from local restaurants for the healthcare workers. These workers work in tough conditions, where the hospital cafeterias often do not provide sufficient food and in many cases, are closed, so that is why I hope to provide food and help get them through their day. If we work together we can make this possible, and with your donation, you can help the community around you.

The GoFundMe link is below: gf.me/u/xyc6yg

 SHOPPING MORE ONLINE?  Try using AmazonSmile which is a simple way for D'Evelyn community members to support our school. AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your purchases to the charity (D'Evelyn Education Foundation). It costs you and D'Evelyn nothing, and it's just like shopping on Amazon normally. Items that are eligible for donations will be marked as such on their product pages. The only real catch is you must start your shopping at smile.amazon.com, This is a great way to support D'Evelyn!

 The D’Evelyn Dash is on August 29th this year and we could use your help!

Come join a fun team!  Here’s how you can get involved:

Dash Chair:

Are you good at organizing people?  The Dash Crew needs you!  We are looking for 1-2 people to shadow our current Dash chairs.  We have all the information organized in google drive/gmail and we have an amazing team of volunteers for the various Dash jobs.  You would just need to oversee the team and keep things moving along.  Most work can be done at home and on your own time.

Sponsorship:

We are looking for 1-2 people to help with sponsorship.  We have all sponsorship documentation in google drive so you aren't having to "reinvent the wheel."  We have also built a healthy list of sponsors.  We just need people to follow up with them and keep things organized.  Most of the work is done on the computer and during the months of March-May.

Smaller Jobs:

Not sure where you want to help or maybe you can take on pieces but not the whole thing?  Email us at develyndashcrew@gmail.com.  We can use your help in any way and would love to work with you!

 Our next donation from American Furniture Warehouse will be $758.10! When shopping at American Furniture please mention D’Evelyn or give the ID#DEVHS5   Thank you D’Evelyn Families for mentioning the school when purchasing furniture!

Jags, please continue to scan your receipts on the Box Tops for Education app! This is an easy way to earn free money for D'Evelyn. You can also bring in unexpired Box Tops to the blue collection bin in the main office. Thanks for your continued support! 

 We have discovered that subscribing to Steering Committee updates through our website has been unreliable for some users.  Please use the following link to be updated electronically for noticed meetings, agendas and minutes:https://sites.google.com/view/develynpolicy/home/calendar-agendas-minutes?authuser=0
