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.

Important Dates:

Aug 19th:  DCMS Open House 6:30—8:00pm
Aug 20th:  District Late Start Teacher Collaboration begins (school starts one hour later every Wednesday through March)

Student Dress Code:  Students are doing a great job following the DC Dress Code Policy!  We have had a few short shorts and a few cases of leggings worn with short tops.  For these first few days, we have used those as teachable moments and not issued consequences.  Starting Monday, Aug 18th we will issue consequences for dress code infractions.  Students will be sent to the office, instructed to call parents, and will be asked to change clothes immediately.  If a student does not have an alternative article of clothing, we will provide something for the student to change into so he/she can get back to class.  If a student prefers to wait for Mom or Dad to bring a new article of clothing, the student will have to wait in the In-School Intervention room to complete their classwork until they can change.  The dress code can be found on our DCMS website.

Morning Routines & Bus and Car Line:  Thank you for your cooperation in our single-file car line.  Student drop-off has been a success this week!

Costa Rica Trip: Interested in an educational field trip to wonderful Costa Rica?  DCMS Teachers Laura Crawford and Jennifer Ingram will have an information session in the DCMS Library at 8:00pm (after Open House ends) on Tuesday, Aug 19th.

Class Novels: Please click here for the order form.  Students can drop off orders in our DCMS Media Center, and their novels will be delivered to them when they are needed for their Literature class.  Super easy, and a portion of the proceeds from the book sales comes right back to our school! 

 2014-2015 DCMS School Shirts:  You can still order our School Shirt for the year!  Please click here to see the design and click here for the “Fundraising Donation” order form.  The proceeds from shirt sales are a tremendous support to our school.  This is our only school wide shirt and our only school wide fundraiser!  We use these donations for school improvements, technology, classroom learning supplies, enrichment activities, and so much more!  Your child can bring your shirt order to our office anytime.

Art Students:  THANK YOU in advance for sending a $20 check (made out to “DCMS Art - #3070”) or cash by Fri., Aug. 22nd. Your student can give this directly to Mrs. Fletcher, your student’s art teacher, to be deposited. Please indicate student’s first name, nickname, and last name.  This fee will pay for art supplies such as individual sketchbooks and the use of paper, colored pencils, pastels, paints and brushes, oil pastels, charcoal, prismacolors, watercolors, rulers, mounting tape, glue sticks, crayons, etc.  I so appreciate your timeliness in this matter. Doing this quickly will help me complete the daily paperwork involved and will allow your student to begin their art adventure more quickly!

Sincerely, Mrs. Fletcher

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

During these first few weeks of school we will be able to read emails in both new and old accounts.  Each teacher will set up their Google account during the first few days of school.  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.  I will continue to update you throughout the transition, and will notify you when our old accounts are completely shut down. 


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 crawfordl@deercreek.k12.ok.us  or  Jennifer Ingram (7th grade) at ingramj@deercreek.k12.ok.us
