DAZZLING JAGS!

~Your D'Evelyn harriers have been working hard and running toward great success!  Last night the girls crushed it winning the Cardinal Classic!  

~The boys golf team once again took 2nd in the last League Match with a combined team score of 332. Medhaj Shrestha and Philip Ahn paced the team with a 79 and 80. Sam Spiers shot a solid 83 and Taylor Gustafson added his season’s best score to round off the scoring. The team is currently holding in 3rd place in league standings, 13 strokes behind Golden for 2nd with one match left.

~The female Student Athlete for September is Taylor Haerbig

Taylor Haerbig has a strong desire to succeed in both academics and athletics at D'Evelyn, making her the ideal student-athlete.  In this season alone, her summer training preparations and her competitive, encouraging, and positive attitude has not only helped her be a leader for our Varsity girls, but has also led to monumental individual improvement.  In each of our first three meets of the season, she has improved on her own time over last year, AND she moved up to the third spot on our all-time XC record board with her incredible race at Liberty Bell last weekend. 

~The male Student Athlete of the Month for September is Sam Spiers

Sam Spiers has been a 4 year letterman appearing in the state tournament his sophomore year and destined for an appearance this year. He is currently ranked third among all Jeffco 4A golfers with a 79 average with two tournaments left. He is a strong candidate for All-Conference Honors and considered one of the best Jeffco 4A golfers this year. The team is currently sitting in third place in league partly due to Sam’s outstanding play this year. He is an outstanding sportsman and well respected within the league. He loves and respects the game of golf and displays impeccable integrity as a model to the younger players.  His contribution these past 4 years to the team have helped keep D’Evelyn Boys golf near the top in Jeffco league standing. 

Congratulations to both of these fine athletes!

PARENTS:

Each month coaches have the opportunity to nominate athletes for Student Athlete of the Month. In order to be selected for this prestigious award, athletes must be academically eligible every week and make significant contributions to their teams, in the eyes of their coaches

 
The female Student Athlete for September is Taylor Haerbig

 Taylor Haerbig has a strong desire to succeed in both academics and athletics at D'Evelyn, making her the ideal student-athlete.  She pushes herself to be her best in the classroom every day, and this work ethic translates perfectly to Cross Country.  In this season alone, her summer training preparations and her competitive, encouraging, and positive attitude has not only helped her be a leader for our Varsity girls, but has also led to monumental individual improvement.  In each of our first three meets of the season, she has improved on her own time over last year, AND she moved up to the third spot on our all-time XC record board with her incredible race at Liberty Bell last weekend.  Congrats, Taylor!  We can't wait to see where your continued efforts in school and on the course will take you! Congratulations Taylor
Taylor was nominated by Coach Lisa Porter

He is more than willing to help other golfers and share his golf experiences and advice with team members who often turn to him.

~Pressing Issues Need D’Evelyn Community Involvement

Jefferson County schools are transitioning to a K-5/6-8/9-12 model. What many of you are probably not aware of is the impact that change will have on D’Evelyn Jr./Sr. High School and Dennison Elementary School. Because of this change, the first Accountability meeting tonight at 5:30 pm in the D’Evelyn library is being utilized to educate our community on the impact this change is having and will have for D’Evelyn.

 In addition to the 6th grade transition dilemma, the Accountability Committee will be seeking input on other potential topics as they relate to D’Evelyn. At our first meeting you will have the ability to provide input on these matters and take an active role in making D’Evelyn a better place.

 

Another area we need parent involvement is on hiring committees and curriculum/textbook reviews. To be eligible to participate on these committees, you need to attend short 20-minute trainings that will be provided during accountability meetings. Accountability meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5:30 pm and the more people we can get involved, the greater our school will be. Please consider attending the Accountability committee meetings and gain a greater knowledge of our school while giving back.

~D’Evelyn Performing Arts Musical Instrument Drive…Learning to play an instrument can have a profound, positive impact on a young person, teaching valuable life skills and boosting confidence and self-esteem. And that unused instrument you have at home in your basement can help make it happen. Our growing instrumental music program has put us in desperate need of band and orchestra instruments for our music department.

We will be collecting donations of gently-used band and orchestra instruments that will be repaired for students at our school. The program is particularly in need of Cellos, Double Basses, and Alto Saxophones, but all instruments are welcome.

            Even if you don't have an instrument, you can help by contributing a monetary donation. $150 is all it takes to repair a donated instrument and put it in the hands of a student. Drop off your instrument or any size donation (payable to DEF) to the band room or main office. Tax donation receipt available. Thank you for helping keep music alive at D’Evelyn!

 

~School Store

The school store is open and ready for business! Get your spirit gear today. Hot items - stadium seats, sweatshirts and the new school spirit scarves!! Hours: Tues/Thurs 10:20 am - 11:50am and the second Wednesday of the month at 2pm - 2:40 pm.  

 

~Cheers to 25 Years! Planning is underway for the Foundation’s Annual Auction.  This year is extra special - we are celebrating a quarter century of academic excellence!  Help us plan.  We are hosting an auction volunteer meeting on Tuesday, September 11th at 6:00 pm.  Contact us at DEFauction@gmail.com to RSVP and get involved!

 

~Parents of 11th and 12th graders:  If you want to OPT OUT of having your students CONTACT INFORMATION given to the military, you must log into Jeffco Connect and do so.  Click on your students name and then on enrollment.  Next, scroll down and click on Opt out.  The deadline for this to be done is September 28th. Call Mrs. Brown in counseling if you have any questions.

 

~Pressing Issues Need D’Evelyn Community Involvement

 As many of you know, Jefferson County schools are transitioning to a K-5/6-8/9-12 model. What many of you are probably not aware of is the impact that change will have (and is already having) on D’Evelyn Jr./Sr. High School and Dennison Elementary School. Because of this change, the first Accountability meeting on September 11th at 5:30 pm in the D’Evelyn library is being utilized to educate our community on the impact this change is having and will have for D’Evelyn. A subcommittee is currently working on solutions for this issue but we need and welcome community input.

 

In addition to the 6th grade transition dilemma, the Accountability Committee will be seeking input on other potential topics as they relate to D’Evelyn. In the past, student awards, student rank, and other issues have been raised but we need to hear from you. At our first meeting you will have the ability to provide input on these matters and take an active role in making D’Evelyn a better place.

 

Another area we need parent involvement is on hiring committees and curriculum/textbook reviews. To be eligible to participate on these committees, you need to attend short 20-minute trainings that will be provided during accountability meetings. Accountability meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5:30 pm and the more people we can get involved, the greater our school will be. So, please mark your calendars to attend the Accountability committee meetings and gain a greater knowledge of our school while giving back.

 


~$1000 stipend!  D’Evelyn’s Steering Committee needs a note taker. Keyboarding skills a must.  Duties are to attend and take notes during our Monday evening meetings (usually 2 meetings per month for 2 1/2 hours).  Please contact Gina, Steering Committee Chair at Gina.coco41@gmail.com if interested.

 

~BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION:  

Welcome back Jags! We are continuing to collect box tops, so put together all those tops you've collected over the summer and bring them in! Help us reach our $1000 goal. Check out Kleenex, Fruit Roll Up and Annie's brands!  There is a collection box located in the front foyer of school and one just inside entrance doors of the front office. Thank you for your continued support of this fundraising opportunity!
