Principal's Message

June 5, 2023


Dear Deerfield Community,


For this week’s Principal’s Message, I am re-sharing some information from the Deerfield and Hanlon Physical Education Teachers regarding Field Day:


This Wednesday, June 7th, we will be having our annual FIELD DAY! All Deerfield students, along with our friends from the Hanlon School who will be joining us at the Pine Hill School next February, will be participating in a day of games, fun, community, and sportsmanship. 


We have planned an action-packed day of game stations! Here are some details and reminders to help students and families prepare for Field Day:

  • We created a slideshow to help preview the schedule and events for Field Day. To access the slideshow, please click on the following link: Deerfield/Hanlon Field Day 2023
  • Students should wear athletic shoes that support feet for running and vigorous movement.  Sneakers are best. No sandals, flip-flops or Crocs, please.
  • Students should wear a t-shirt and shorts. Bring a long-sleeved shirt or sweatshirt for the morning chill. Field Day t-shirts will be provided to all students.
  • Students should bring a labeled water bottle.
  • Students should wear sunblock.
  • Freeze pops will be provided.


Thank you so much to the Deerfield and Hanlon PTOs for all their support! We are also grateful for the volunteers from both communities who will help to make the day great! We look forward to field day and know it will be a fun-filled community-building event for our students!


Mr. Chant & Mrs. Jenning, Deerfield and Hanlon P.E. teachers


Be kind. Work hard. Have fun!
