The DCMS Scoop:
If you are not familiar with Deer Creek Middle School or "The Scoop," this is an e-newsletter that provides information to parents about what is taking place at the Middle School each week.  It is a great communication tool for us and a great way for you to know how you can be involved in your child’s school.  This e-newsletter will be sent out every Friday afternoon describing events taking place at our school for the following week.  If you know of someone who is not receiving the newsletter, please have them contact the office to sign up.

Week of May 18, 2015—LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL! 
Thank you for all of your support for this successful school year at DCMS!

Please read the DCMS YEARBOOK POLICY:

Our yearbook is a student created publication of Deer Creek Middle School. Students enrolled in the Yearbook class are required to take photos at events during the school day as well as during after school activities. The students design layouts, type text, edit and proofread copy.  Our goal is to provide an overview of the activities and student life at Deer Creek Middle School. Student and staff portraits are taken by Oklahoma School Pictures, LLC and provided for use in the yearbook. Sometimes there are typing errors in names, dates or information provided.  When errors are found prior to publication, they are corrected. Please accept our apologies for any errors we may have missed.  If your student picture does not appear in the book, there will be no refunds.  If your name is misspelled in the yearbook, please accept our sincere apologies, and understand there will be no discounts or refunds in this event.

8th Grade Recognition Ads - If an 8th grader's name is misspelled or there are any other discrepancies, there will be no refunds or discounts.

The yearbook staff is not responsible for lost or stolen books. We will not refund any money or issue a new book if this occurs.
