Deerfield Site Council and Meeting Agenda

We are looking for one more Deerfield parent to serve on the Deerfield Site Council this year. The Deerfield Site Council is a school advisory group that is composed of parents, teachers, and community members. The council members assist the principal in: 1) Adopting educational goals for the school that are consistent with local educational policies and statewide student performance standards, 2) identifying the educational needs of students attending the school, 3) reviewing the annual school building budget, and 4) discussing a school improvement plan.


The Deerfield Site Council meets monthly throughout the year. Our meetings are usually held on the second Monday of the month from 3:30pm - 4:30pm. Please contact Mr. Baumer if you are interested in serving on the Deerfield Site Council during the 2021-2022 school year.


Our next meeting will be held remotely on Monday, March 14th from 3:30pm - 4:30pm. All are welcome to attend.



Thank You: Snack Cart

Thank you so much to the McDaniels family for all of the delicious snacks they provided during the week before the February vacation! The Deerfield staff is so appreciative of your generosity and looks forward to these special treats each week!


Reminder: Classroom Furniture Arrangement

Beginning on Monday, March 7, 2022, changes to the arrangement of classroom furniture will be permitted. The changes in each classroom may vary depending on variables, such as class size and grade-level. However, the changes will likely result in reduced physical distancing between students during classroom work times. Individual classroom teachers will communicate any classroom changes directly to students' families.
