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 for email.

2016-2017 Donation Request! We need you!
Fundraising is a necessary element in Deer Creek to keep our academic programs at the highest levels. The money raised is used to fund everything imaginable for our classrooms! The attached donation request form was distributed during pre-enrollment, and many families have already donated. THANK YOU!!! If you haven't donated, please consider doing so today! This fundraiser is a one-time request that will go directly to DCMS and also covers the cost of your student’s school shirt that they will receive for the 2016-2017 school year.
All donating families (that have already donated or will donate to DCMS by Friday, May 13th) will have their names entered into a drawing for AMC Movie Passes! We will draw 5 family names on Monday, May 16th for 2 free movie passes each!
