D'Evelyn Announcements 11 December 2018 



~Boys’ Mentoring will meet in their rooms on Friday during 7th hour for our annual white elephant gift exchange.  Students DO NOT need to bring gifts, we will supply them.  This will be a fun time.  See Mr. Northway if you have a conflict.



~Second semester schedules will be released on Monday, Dec 17th. Counselors will be available for schedule changes after finals on Wednesday, Dec 19th and Thursday, Dec  20th. Schedule changes are made for limited reasons such as being placed in the wrong level of a class, not meeting the prerequisite of a class, and missing a class in general.



~NJHS – World’s Finest Chocolate is in!  Come to Mr. Northway’s office to pick up your box!



~Don’t forget about “Paws for a Cause” -- the D’Evelyn Giving Tree Gift Drive. Stop by the Giving Tree display in the main office and take a paw ornament off the tree. It has a gift or age on the front as well as instructions on the back.  Bring back the unwrapped gift before December 18th.



~You only have a few days left to vote for the prestigious Blue Spruce Book Awards!!  Remember only you are allowed to participate---no adults!!  You can vote in the library or you can also vote online!!  Help recognize your favorite authors and books!! 



~Jags, please spread the joy of the holiday season by donating to 3rd period class for National French Honor Society’s collection drive. Items donated will be used in care packages for deployed troops, veterans, first responders, wounded heroes and caregivers. Items such as wipes, batteries, travel size deodorant, & hand warmers. Check the flyer on the box to see what else is needed. Also, please include any letters that express your gratitude for the people who protect our freedom!





~ Continuing Parent Announcements ~


~Be sure to stop by the school store for any last minute gifts.  We just restocked all our our hats - winter, baseball (both men and women), and bucket!! Stadium seats make great gifts while also saving your back when you are cheering on the JAGS.  Store hours this week are Tues/Thurs during lunch and Wednesday 2-2:40pm.  You can always email if you need anything.  Thanks for your support!



~Important!!  We have an update with regard to our lottery and enrollment for the 19-20 school yearStarting December 17, 2018 you can access EnrollJeffco School Finder to view profiles for all of our Jeffco Schools.  EnrollJeffco is slated to “go live” on January 22, 2019.  The deadline for completing the application for our first round lottery is February 8, 2019.  During this window, you log in and complete the choice enrollment application.  Because you currently have a student at D’Evelyn, you are not required to attend a parent information meeting but you must complete the on-line application during the window (January 22-February 8) to be added to the sibling priority lottery group.


Jeffco Connect credentials will be your log in.  Please make sure your log in works and review and update emergency contact information.  Call Susan Brown in counseling if you need assistance with Jeffco Connect log in.

~Get Involved. Serve on a Hiring Committee

At the December 11th Accountability meeting in the library, Steering will present a training on what is required to serve on a hiring committee. This opportunity is open to the D’Evelyn community but to be chosen to serve on a committee, you must first attend this training.

Please join us on December 11th at 5:30 pm when Principal Josh Griffin will present on our school data and Unified Improvement Plan and a Steering Committee member will provide a training for anyone interested in serving on a hiring committee.  We hope to see you there.




It's that time of year again!  Time to assemble Finals Care Packages for our hardworking D'Evelyn students. We will be putting together the care packages on Tuesday, December 18th from 12 to 2:30pm on the auditorium stage.  Please sign up to help stuff and deliver them to classrooms so our students will receive their care packages during their 1st final on Wednesday, Dec 19th.  Sign up using this link: This project moves very quickly with lots of helping hands!  Thank you!



D’Evelyn Giving Tree  --  “Paws for a Cause”

We would like to invite D’Evelyn families to consider participating in “Paws for a Cause” -- the D’Evelyn Giving Tree Gift Drive.

If you would like to provide a gift to support a local family, you or your student can stop by the Jags Giving Tree display in the office.  Each of the Paw ornaments on the tree has a gift or age on the front as well as instructions on the back.  Feel free to take an ornament or two and then bring back the gift before December 18th.

This is a great opportunity for D’Evelyn students to care for families and friends in our community!

In addition, if you know of a family that is in need of assistance this Holiday Season…or if your family could use a helping hand, please contact Sonya Sotolongo at 303-982-2619 in the main office. If you have any questions about the Jags Giving Tree please contact Kelly Morris at  Thanks in advance for your generosity!!!



~Holiday Shopping via Amazon ? AmazonSmile 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  which, in my opinion, is a small price to pay to have a portion of your purchases go to D'Evelyn!   





~Hey Jags, keep collecting those Box Tops.  When you bring them in please make sure they are not expired.  The collection box is located just inside the doors of the front office. Thanks for your continued support!
