The School Year is off to a fast start, just like many of you at our 18th annual D’Evelyn DASH 5k/2k/carnival. Thank you to all who volunteered, ran/walked, and supported the student and sponsored carnival booths last weekend. Our volunteers are still tallying up the results, but it was a great day for D'Evelyn!
We will need your help to keep pace the rest of the year. To that end, we frequently post volunteer requests on the parent section of Daily Announcements. You can bookmark the daily announcements or use the link the Daily Announcement page to have daily announcements sent to your email daily.
As you know from your student’s school calendar, Fall is a busy time at D’Evelyn, and this is when we could really use your Volunteering spirit and time (not to mention casseroles!). Here are just a few upcoming events for you to consider.
Junior High Boosters is planning the fall social on September 14th in advance of the Homecoming Football game. To get involved, email D'EvelynBooster@gmail.com.
Our Annual Auction Cheers to 25 Years is a celebration of 25 years of D’Evelyn Success! This is our most significant fundraiser of the year - not to mention a fun party for parents and teachers and our extended D'Evelyn community. Our school's continued success will depend in large part on the involvement of all our student body parents. This will be a “volunteer intensive” event, so thank you in advance for helping. Sponsorships and item donations are just a couple of ways you can help support this event. We are holding a volunteer meeting on Tuesday, September 11th at 6:00 pm at Old Chicago at 145 Union in Lakewood.
Email DEFAuction@gmail.com to learn more.
Parent teacher conferences are October 3-4th. These are long days and evenings for our teachers and staff, so we provide a dinner to keep them going. Sarah Carlson will be posting a signup on Daily Announcements to contribute. Expect to see food-centric teacher appreciation requests monthly.
We would also like to draw attention to the first Accountability Committee meeting of the year on September 11 from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
Thank you for your commitment to D’Evelyn. The more volunteers that get involved, the stronger our D’Evelyn community becomes.
