Principal's Message

Dear Deerfield Families and Staff,


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!


On Friday, May 26th, the Deerfield community is invited to attend a special Memorial Day ceremony. The ceremony will begin at 8:45am and will last approximately 30-45 minutes. We will gather around the flagpole in front of Deerfield. The program will include the Pledge of Allegiance, student speakers, and the singing of patriotic songs. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place in the Deerfield gymnasium.


This year, I invite students to submit a response to the John F. Kennedy quote: 


"My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you,
ask what you can do for your country." 


Students who submit a response by Wednesday, May 24th will be acknowledged as Pledge Leaders at the beginning of our ceremony. I encourage students to consider their service and contributions to the Deerfield school and our community in their responses. 


I have attached some sample templates that can be printed and used for students' writing and drawing. However, please feel free to use paper and materials you have at home. To access the templates, please click the following link: Memorial Day Responses 


I hope you can join us on Friday, May 26th for Deerfield's Memorial Day ceremony. Have a wonderful week!


Thank you so much,


Joshua Baumer
