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 for email.
