DCMS Open House is Monday! (Aug 29th) 6:30—8:00pm
We invite you to our annual Open House Monday night (Aug 29th) from 6:30—8:00pm. You will need to take a picture, use your Portal app, or bring a copy of your child’s schedule before arriving for the evening. (We won’t be able to re-print 860+ schedules!) You will spend approximately 7 minutes with each of your child’s teachers (following your child’s schedule) starting with their 1st hour class at 6:30pm. Please see the emailed “Open House 2016” flyer. I have also emailed a map of our school. This event is for parents only. We ask that you please make childcare arrangements. We simply do not have enough room in the classrooms for the entire family. Our teachers are looking forward to meeting you!
Antler Pride Night was TONIGHT!:
Thank you for supporting Antler Pride and DCMS!
The deadline to order class novels was set for Monday, August 29. We have extended the deadline! The library has ordered extras of all the books and will sell the packages until all books are sold. Please continue to send the payments and order form to the library or office. 8th graders will need The Pearl by Friday, September 2. For questions regarding required novels for Lit/Comp, please email Mrs. Denney at: email@example.com
DC Bond Election:
Thank you for your support! Our DC 2016 Bond passed!
DC Global Education Program:
The Deer Creek Global Education Program was established to offer opportunities for students and parents to experience various cultures through educational travel tours.
During Spring Break of 2017, the DCGOP will be traveling to Belize. This tour will be action packed with zip lining, cave tubing, snorkeling, as well as visiting a school to observe and deliver needed educational supplies.
During Spring Break of 2018, our program will be traveling to Europe again, but this time focusing our travel in Rome and Paris.
Informational meeting on Monday, 8/29, at 8:10 after "Open House" night. If you need more information, please email Laura Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jennifer Ingram at email@example.com
Campus Portal for Students:
When you check your email you will find the instructions for setting up the Student Campus Portal account in Infinite Campus. It is important that you read all 5 steps prior to clicking on the link so you know what to do. It is also important that you write down your new password somewhere safe for your records. The Student Campus Portal is slightly different than the Parent Portal. It is intended for students to be able to monitor their own grades and deadlines. The Parent Portal has additional settings, lunch payment options, etc.
DCMS Athletes: Deadline for Athletic Physicals is Sept 1st!
From Our Athletic Director:
Every student-athlete must complete our online athletic forms in order to participate in a sport. These forms must be completed before a student-athlete is allowed to practice and/or play.
IMPORTANT: There are two different instruction pages attached to the email. One set of instructions are for people who have already registered their child on www.swol123.net, the other instructions are for people who haven't registered in the past.
Registered in the past (Usually 8th graders) - Use Online Paperwork instructions
Never Registered (Usually 7th graders) - Use Introduction Letter to Athletes
*How do I know when I am done?
Forms: View/complete required paperwork. SportsWare will automatically display “You have ? forms to complete/download." This means you have more forms to complete.
Complete: Once you are done, it will say "you have 0 forms to complete or download."
Students competing in any sport at DCMS must have a current physical on file with the school (dated after May 1, 2016). This is an OSSAA requirement for all competitive and club sports. If you completed your physical at the PAAC on the Physical Night in May, then we have a copy of it. If not, please visit your family physician or any convenient care clinic to obtain a physical for your child. Please take the emailed Physical form with you for completion and return this form to DCMS in August during Schedule Pick-Up. Students that have not submitted a physical are not allowed to compete until they do so. Starting Sept 1st, any student athletes that do not have a physical on file at DCMS will not be allowed to remain in an Athletics class and his/her schedule will be permanently changed on Thursday, Sept 1st. (Even if the sport in which your child plans to participate in doesn’t occur until the spring. The OSSAA has strict guidelines on this.) Thank you for your cooperation.
WELCOME WEEK Dress-Up Days Aug 29-Sept 2nd:
Starting Monday, we will be celebrating WELCOME WEEK with dress up days each day!
Tuesday—Tropical Tuesday (vacation tees, Hawaiian, etc.)
Brighten up your Wednesday with NEON day!
Thursday—Celebrating Football Moms and Barbeque Dads (bling sportswear, visors, mom jeans, BBQ aprons)
And finally we’ll close out the week with a Fan-Day Friday! (favorite college/pro team, DC gear)
We hope everyone will participate to show our newest Antlers how much fun we have at DCMS! Remember, our dress code will still apply!
There will be no JV football games against Edmond Central (They do not have JV Squads this year). The new start times for the Varsity games are:
7th Grade Football: Tuesday, August 30th at 6pm. (@DCHS)

Box Tops for Our Library:
The library collects Box Tops all year long! Please send Box Tops in bags of 50 to the library with your child’s name on the bag. Every bag of 50 is entered into a monthly drawing for a Sonic gift card. There will be two winners every month! All money raised goes toward purchasing new books for the library.
Jeans for Teens:
Creek Connect will be collecting used jeans for the “Jeans for Teens” program. They will be donated to a homeless shelter that focuses on teens. If you recently cleaned out your closet you are welcome to bring them to the container in the main office. If you have questions please contact Ms. Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are happy to announce that we have a new system in place where students can text issues that they observe such as bullying, safety/security issues, suspicious persons or activity, harassment, inappropriate behaviors/vandalism, etc. Students simply text the information they want to report to 405.358.DCMS (3267). Information sent to this number goes straight to our DCMS Principal Team. Please encourage your child to report anything inappropriate or unsafe that he/she observes. We need to all work together to keep our school safe!
Student Accident Insurance:
The Deer Creek School District has made arrangements to offer Student Accident Insurance for all students from K&K Insurance Group. We make this coverage available to parents for their children who are students enrolled in our schools. The Deer Creek School District does not provide insurance coverage or medical reimbursements to parents for injuries that occur during school, including those incurred during gym classes, recess, etc.
While this coverage is optional, it is important that you review the coverage options available to you and consider purchasing this coverage, especially if your family has health insurance with a high co-payment for doctor and emergency visits, or a high-deductible plan, etc. You may find more information regarding Student Accident Insurance on the Deer Creek School District Website.
