SOS Programs at DCMS:

The adolescent years are marked by a roller-coaster ride of emotions – difficult for youths, their parents, and educators. It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil; however, depression (among the most common mental health issues) appears to be occurring at a much earlier age. To proactively address these issues, Deer Creek Middle School is offering depression awareness and suicide prevention training through the nationally recognized Signs of Suicide (SOS) Middle School Program. This program has been specifically designed for middle school students and has been successfully utilized by thousands of schools nationwide since 2000. It has proven successful at increasing help seeking behaviors by students as well as reduce suicide attempts. If you DO NOT wish your child to participate in the SOS Middle School Program in school, please complete the e-mailed form and return it to Deer Creek Middle School to the attention of Sharyl Thompson, Andrea Carpenter or Kristi Kringlen by September 25, 2017 .  If we do not hear from you, we will assume your child has permission to participate in this important program. 

Academic Team Tryouts:

All students who are interested in trying out for the DCMS Academic team need to stop by the library to pick up a tryout form.  Tryouts will be held this Monday, September 25th in the library.  See Mrs. Denney or Ms. Souter for more information.
