Antler All-Stars:

Congratulations to our Antler All-Stars of the Week.

Certified Healthy School:

We were recently notified that we received the Excellence Award as an Oklahoma Certified Healthy School!  We received this award due to our healthy food and activity choices, anti-bullying program, and counseling/wellness program that we incorporate into everything we do at DCMS.  Yippee!

Awesome Kids:

Do you have a student who dedicates all waking hours to an activity that isn’t typically recognized at school?  Tae Kwon Do, Piano, Lacrosse, Gymnastics, Horseback riding: these are all just a few examples of the kinds of things we’re looking for!  If so, yearbook would LOVE to hear from you.  Please email a description of your student’s activity/achievements along with a photograph (if possible) to erinmichael@dcsok.org  

Please place the words “Awesome Kid” in the subject line.  We can’t wait to hear what your students are achieving outside of the classroom! Please note: Depending on response, we cannot guarantee that every submission will be published. Thanks!

Pre-Enrollment for 2017-2018:

The time to pre-enroll for the 2017-2018 school year in grades 5--12 is fast approaching. Our district-wide pre-enrollment process will take place online through our Campus Portal system starting Feb 13th.  The good news is that you can start this process now.  The 1st step, is to make sure you know how to log-in to the system.  If you have not yet set-up your child's account and your parent account, you must follow the emailed instructions ASAP. 

If you and your child know how to access your Campus Portal account, then all you need to do for now is to continue to use the site and make sure all of your demographic data is current. This will save you a lot of time during pre-enrollment.  You need to make sure you remember your log-in information to access the Campus Portal website.  You cannot update demographic data and you cannot pre-enroll through the app.  (The app is just a quick look-up for grades and lunch account balances.)

If you have any questions regarding your account and/or need assistance with your account, please email directly:  campusportal@dcsok.org  with your child's name and your question(s).  Please keep in mind that it may take a few days to receive a reply as the entire district is gearing up for pre-enrollment over the next 4 weeks.  Thank you for your patience.

We will send out additional details regarding DCMS and DCHS pre-enrollment nights in February as we get closer to Feb 13th.

CREEK CLASSIC 

We are very excited to announce the 21st Annual Creek Classic Race, which is scheduled for March 4, 2017. Creek Classic attracts runners from all over the state and continues to grow each year.  Creek Classic is an annual event that is a district wide fundraiser for Deer Creek Schools.  Also, as our district continues to grow, so does the need for educational items to help our schools, students and teachers. In Deer Creek, our goal is to continue to strive for academic excellence in the state. In the past, the money raised from this event has helped our schools purchase items like iPads, smart boards, text books, library books, mobile lap top computers, continuing education for teachers, playground equipment, software, sound systems and much more.
