Our Core Values
The Deerfield community is one that truly cares about all students, families, and staff members. We strive to align our actions and behaviors with the following core values: Cooperation, Academic Excellence, Acceptance, Respect, Responsibility, and Effort. Forming the acronym CARE, our core values help us create an environment in which all students can learn and grow.
Hello Deerfield Students!
Welcome you to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. All of the Deerfield teachers have been working so hard to get your classrooms and the whole school ready for you. Our school will look a little different. For example, desks are spread out and there are dots on the floor of the hallways to make sure we give each other enough space to stay safe and healthy. Our learning will look a little different too. We will all be wearing masks during the school day and some of you will be learning from in school at the same time that others are learning from home.
What won’t look different are all the ways we help each other, take care of each other, and enjoy our time together. Deerfield is not a building. Deerfield is a community. Deerfield is a team. Deerfield is cooperative, smart, accepting, respectful, responsible, and always willing to put in the best effort. Deerfield is all of these things because of all of you. Our students, families, and teachers who always remember to be kind, work hard, and have fun. I am so proud to be a part of Deerfield and cannot wait to begin the school year with you all.
Thank you so much,
The Deerfield PTO would like to officially welcome you to the 2020 - 2021 School Year! As we face several unique challenges this year, the PTO will focus on helping to connect our community of both remote and in-person learners. We will work to develop creative events that allow us to “come together” in a fun and safe manner.
