Dear Families,


We welcome you to Deer Creek School! We look forward to getting to know each of you.  We also look forward to working together to create an awesome learning environment and fantastic school year for your child.  Our goal these first few days will be to create a safe, loving, positive environment where everyone is comfortable and feels free to be him/herself.  You are welcome to contact us at school if you have any questions or concerns that need attention prior to Back-to-School Night (Thursday, August 23rd @ 5:30-7:00)


We want to strongly encourage at least one parent from each family to attend Back-to-School Night.  There is a lot of important information covered that will be pertinent all year. It is also a good time for you to get a feel for the classroom where your child will spend so much valuable time.


Your child will bring home a Binder and Binder Reminder on the first day.  This will be used all year as an organizational system for assignments, events and notes between parents, teachers and your child.  Please go over what your third grader has written in it each day and initial the day’s assignments after going over your child’s homework with him or her.  You may also comment and write short notes to us. This is an excellent way for us to communicate.  You may also contact us by phone or email.


The Communicator is also being sent home on the first day.  Please go through the material in it carefully and send back the necessary paperwork as soon as possible.  From now on, the Communicator will be sent home on Thursdays and needs to be returned by the next school day.


We hope your child had a fun and exciting first day of third grade.  The year ahead will be one of tremendous growth for all of us. It is always our goal to make each year as rich and joyful an experience as we possibly can.  We look forward to knowing all of you and sharing this important time together.
