I stumbled across Gabe Thexton's blog yesterday and it made me wonder whether anyone has contributed to the Wikipedia page for our dear alma mater. *clears throat*

I found a half-hearted infobox with a photo of the school and a blurb about how D'Evelyn has the highest average ACT score of any Colorado school. None of the fun stuff, not even a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Prayer Group Named After That Dean What Died Suddenly or our sports teams' stellar successes. Some indeterminate time of flogging minimally interesting data later (and looking at pictures of cheerleaders, heh heh), I present: D'Evelyn Junior/Senior High School on Wikipedia.

karaksindru, if you have access to your yearbooks, I most kindly request -- and offer favors to be negotiated later -- for you to scan the opening ceremony photos from the first yearbook for me. I no longer have access to a copy so I'm hoping you might. *bats eyelashes*

I detect no pictures of cheerleaders in this Wikipedia entry.

That's because the photos do not belong to me and I do not have the subjects' permission to be turning them out on Wikipedia.

You can look at them here: http://www.dhscheers.com/

Happy Thanksgiving.

It occurs to me that this is the first comment I've left in your journal. And now that I look at it upon getting a little more sleep, I discover that I had to go with "creepy" right away. Way to make a first impression!

It turns out I don't actually require pictures of cheerleaders, though I do appreciate the thought. ^_^

Nah, I get way creepier things in my breakfast cereal.

I don't require pictures of cheerleaders either, but it was enlightening to see how far the athletic programs at my alma mater have come since I was there. My memories involve them running on dental floss and duct tape.

Hah! D'Evelyn. I remember when that school started. In elementary school I used to ride a bus that shared a route with Dennison.

Himself went from 7th grade at Dennison to 8th grade in the just-opened D'Evelyn. I used to have access to his copy of D'Evelyn's first yearbook, but it's been in storage for a few years and I'd feel obligated to return it ASAP if I came across it.

I once drew a diagram explaining how two routes from the west area bus barn served all of the district option schools and programs (with transfers to other area buses, of course), but it's lost in the mists of memory now.

I spent at least an hour a day on the bus when I went to D'Evelyn. I don't miss that part of high school.

Dee-evelyn.
one time, in a pre-season exhibition game, my football team kicked the hell out of your football team.

Also - up until last year when she started law-school, I knew the D'Evelyn cheerleading coach. We went to college together.

So now you know.

Re: Dee-evelyn.
Pretty much every team kicked the hell out of the football team when I was there, except for the time Jefferson just packed up and left instead of finishing a game... but that might have been against Evergreen, not D'Evelyn.

Sadly, I have no idea who their cheerleading coach was or is. The only non-staff person I know there know is the drill writer for the marching band.

I did, I did! It arrived Friday or Saturday and Laurel is thrilled at having Crystal Light orange juice to mix up her usual rotation of "red" (raspberry) and pink lemonade in her fridge juice bottle.

Thanks for the samples, too. I've been curious about that new Biore line but hadn't tried it yet.
