Principal's Message

October 3, 2022


Dear Deerfield Community,


It’s hard to believe that we have completed the first and moved into the second month of the 2022-2023 school year. Some important fall milestones have been reached, such as Curriculum Night, bus evacuation practice, and our first fire drill. In addition, many schoolwide and classroom routines have been established. Predictable routines provide students with consistency throughout the school day. They help students know what is expected of them and provide support in meeting the learning and behavioral expectations in all school settings.


The Deerfield faculty and staff have devoted the time necessary to establish clear and consistent classroom expectations and routines throughout the first month of school. While, at times, there may be a temptation to move quickly or move on before a routine is truly established, our teachers understand how teaching and practicing routines in the early days will help make the rest of the school year run smoothly.


As we begin the second month of the 2022-2023 school year, it is easy to see established routines in action. Students are entering their classrooms calmly each morning, unpacking independently, and getting started on their morning work. Students are entering specialist classes ready to focus on the day’s lesson and engage in the day’s work. Students are demonstrating ownership and responsibility for their classrooms by taking care of the materials while using them and putting them away when they are finished. These examples are a reflection of the time that has been spent during the month of September to prepare students for the deep learning that will occur in the months ahead.


Be kind. Work hard. Have fun!
