Greetings Deerfield Parents!
The 2014-15 school year is here and the Deerfield Elementary Parent Teacher Association (Deerfield PTA) would like to extend a warm welcome to all of the new and returning students and their families!
We encourage you to stop by the welcome tables during the first week of school to enjoy a FREE cup of Starbucks Coffee on us, to say hello to some of our PTA Officers and members, and to let us know the areas in which you would like to get involved. You will also be able to buy spirit wear, sign up for the Deerfield PTA, and make your annual contribution for the opportunity to get a free T-shirt and help your child’s class win the Deerfield Slime Bucket Challenge!! The class with the highest contribution wins the chance to dump a bucket of Slime on Principal McKeown!!
We have so many fun things planned this year, so stay tuned for more information, including the first Deerfield Pancake Breakfast and Yard Sale coming soon!!
Cost to Parents: $0
Time from Parents: 5 seconds
If you link your Ralphs Rewards Card to the Deerfield PTA, Ralphs will donate money directly to our PTA. Linking your card is only good for one year (9/1/14 – 8/31/15). Ralphs erases the information and therefore you need to “re-link” your card on or after September 1st of each year.

*If you don’t remember your password or need to create an online account, you will see the necessary links when you go to the website address listed in Step 1.

The 5th Grade Mother Daughter Tea took place this Tuesday evening, March 18th, in the Multi-purpose Room. Attendance was outstanding with a total of 100 people! Our speaker, Colleen Weeks, made the presentation very entertaining as well as educational. The guests enjoyed a variety of delightful snacks and refreshments. The room was filled with laughter and chatter all evening.
Thank you to all the mothers that helped make this such a wonderful evening and to the companies that provided donations.
