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.
Dear Deerfield Families and Staff,
Our first General PTO meeting of the year was scheduled for this Wednesday, October 23rd at 7:00pm. Instead of holding that meeting, we are encouraging Deerfield parents to attend the first Elementary Building Project Community Forum. This is one of two opportunities to hear the Initial Information Presentation and participate in a Feedback Session.
During this forum, Superintendent Parks will review the School Building Project process and share a “current status” update. You will have an opportunity to meet the design team, including the Project Manager and Architect. Finally, you will have an opportunity to participate in small break-out groups to discuss project priorities. The Elementary Building Project will help Westwood Public Schools modernize our schools and enhance student learning. Sharing information about the project and gathering input from the community is an important part of the process.
The Elementary Building Project Community Forum will be held this Wednesday, October 23rd at 7:00pm in the cafeteria at Thurston Middle School. A second Initial Information Presentation and Feedback Session Community Forum will be held on Monday, November 4th at the same time and location. Participants can attend either session.
At 6:45am, prior to the Community Forum, we will hold a brief PTO meeting to share some Deerfield-specific information and hold a procedural vote for the PTO Executive Board. This meeting will also be held at Thurston Middle School. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening.
Thank you so much,
Deerfield Elementary School
