Reminder: Mid-Year Principal Survey

Last week, I sent a letter regarding my mid-year principal survey to all Deerfield parents and staff members. Thank you so much to everyone who has provided me with feedback so far. If you haven't had a chance to complete the survey yet, I hope you will take a few minutes to do so this week. The survey will remain open until the end of the day on Friday, March 22nd.


To access the survey, please click on the link provided in the letter I sent last week. If you did not receive the letter, please email me directly and I will resend it to you. Thank you so much!
