Forty works of art created by D'Evelyn Jr. and Sr. High School students are on exhibit in the 2020 Jeffco Schools Foundation Annual Art Show. The traditional gallery shows are usually installed each spring at both the Arvada Center and the Lakewood Cultural Centers. This year, due to COVID-19 and the shift of schools to a remote learning platform, the art shows shifted too! None the less, Mrs. Haller and Mrs. Lawrence sent the work of our outstanding artists to the virtual art show. Check it out at http://www.jeffcoarts.com To find D’Evelyn go to webpage > School Galleries > Charter and Options School 

 

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.

The first ever Senior Sweepstakes took place to honor the DHS senior class of 2020.  Each day at 4:30pm, Student Council representatives hosted an Instagram Live give-away of prizes to help the senior class embark on the next chapter of their lives.  All members of the Class of 2020 were automatically entered to win incredible prizes such as Smart TVs, Alexa-controlled microwaves, and countless college and dorm essentials. Congratulations to all of our winners!  A HUGE thank you to Janeen Waggoner & Shannon Willis, the After Prom Committee, and the D’Evelyn Education Foundation for making this encouraging event possible; all of the seniors felt very appreciated because of the support from the Jag community that made this event possible!

DAZZLING JAGS:

Senior Student Athletes of the Week Ally May and Jack Grant!

 

Ally May is the female Senior Athlete of the week. A dual threat, Ally excelled on both the track and swim teams all four years. On the Track & Field team, Ally has participated in events ranging from the 100m to the 800m, as well as several relay teams. Always willing to run whatever event had an open spot, Ally could be counted on to give her best each and every race. 

Ally was also part of Girls Mentoring, Interact, FCA, and was an officer for Mu Alpha Theta. Ally will be attending the University of Colorado Boulder in the fall and plans on going to medical school. 

 

The male Senior Student Athlete of the week is Jack Grant.  Jack was a guard on the Boys Basketball Team and is a versatile member of the Track Team. Jaguar track coaches say that he has worked extremely hard at his jumping ability in track. During practice he always wants one more jump, as he looks to go even higher.  

Jack has the unique opportunity of being teammates with his younger brother in both basketball and track.  Jack has played basketball for 4 years and has been on the track team for 3, as well as playing soccer his 9th grade year.  Jack is an excellent student and will be headed to Arizona State University next fall.

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.

 

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.

 

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!   

 

Graduation for the D’Evelyn Class of 2020 at Jeffco Stadium on Thursday evening, August 6, 2020 at 7 pm.

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!
