Great Things at DC

State Report Cards:
Deer Creek received an overall score of 72.7 on the State Report Cards released today.  We are proud of our growth as a school (our overall score on our last report card was 70.0).  It has been our goal to Exceed Expectations and we took a huge stride with this year's growth.  A score of 73.0 indicates Exceeding Expectations and we are on our way!


McTeacher's Night
Thanks to all of the staff, students, friends, and family who participated in last night's McTeacher's event at the Bay View McDonald's located at KK and Potter.  A great time was had by all!  Funds raised go toward our school's PBIS initiative.

Quarter 2

Quarter 2 is off and running!  Thanks to our students, families, and staff for a great first quarter of excellent teaching and learning!

Look for quarter 1 report cards next week.  The goal is to have report cards out on Wednesday.

Parents: Remember that your student's teachers can be available any time to discuss grades, assignments, and concerns.  You need not wait until Parent/Teacher conference dates. Communication between home and school is the key to successful learning!
