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 get signed up.

Deer Creek Email Transitions:  The Deer Creek District is transitioning to Google mail.  We appreciate your patience during this transition.  Our new email addresses will be “firstnamelastname@dcsok.org” 
For example, my new email is:  kristyvandorn@dcsok.org
There have been a few technical issues, so if you have emailed a teacher and he/she hasn’t responded in 24-48 hrs, you can always call our main office, and we will send a message to the teacher.  We are no longer receiving emails to our old accounts. 

DC GLOBAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
COSTA RICA 2015

The next DC GEP travel opportunity will be to Costa Rica over Spring Break of 2015. If you are interested in zip-lining through the canopies, hiking to La Fortuna Waterfall, touring the wildlife refuge, and visiting the Poás Volcano, then this is the ideal educational trip for you! If you have any questions,  please feel free to contact Laura Crawford (8th grade) at lauracrawford@dcsok.org or Jennifer Ingram (7th grade) at jenniferingram@dcsok.org

After School Reminder:
All students need to ride a bus home or be picked up at 2:30pm each day unless the student is participating in an after school activity and is with their coach, sponsor, or teacher.  Students that are not participating in an evening event are not allowed to "hang out" after school.  We encourage our student fans to return to campus later in the evening (when our events start) to support our programs.  Please help us with this as this is for the safety of our students.
Test Scores:​
State Test scores from Spring 2014 are available for pick-up in our DCMS office.​
Parents can stop by our office between 7:00am--3:00pm to pick-up scores.  If you want your child to bring home his/her scores, you can instruct your child to stop by the office to pick them up.  Starting Sept 15th, any remaining scores will be distributed to students through their classroom teachers to bring home.  (Some families prefer to pick up scores themselves so they can look at the scores before their child does.  This is why we provide a 2 week window for families to come to the office to pick-up scores.)

Back-to-School Dance:
​The first dance of the year will take place Friday night from 6:00--8:00pm in the DCMS Cafeteria!  This event is for current DCMS students only.  Admission is $5 and the concession stand will be open selling pizza for $2 a slice and bottled water for $1.  This is a school event, so please ensure that your child is properly dressed for the dance.​  We will use the bus loop for pick up at 8:00pm.  If your child isn't coming to your car after a few minutes we may need to ask you to pull on through and go to the back of the line to keep the car line moving.  We will make several announcements for the kids to be watching for their family vehicles.

PowerSchool Grade Checks:  
We encourage you to constantly check your child’s progress in their classes.  Please contact the teacher or office if you have any questions about your child’s grades.  We want every child to be successful, and we know how important it is to have parents working with teachers to make this happen.  Click on this link to access the parent portal:
