Deerfield Elementary PTA has partnered with the Orange County Register to bring you an amazing subscription offer. For just $1, you will get an entire year of the Sunday paper delivered to your house, plus unlimited online access to the paper’s digital format. A flier/form came home in the Falcon Folders on Thursday (1/12/17). You can bring in the form/payment to the front office, or click on the link below to sign up on-line. If you need more copies of the registration flier/form, please pick one up in the front office.

We are trying to get as many people as possible to sign up, so any child who brings in a registration form will get to participate in a special Principal’s Recess!

This offer is for anyone in Orange County as long as the person has not been an OCR subscriber in the past 30 days. If you’ve previously signed up for your current subscription through a similar campaign, you may renew that subscription as long as it’s due to expire in the next 90 days. Each household is allowed 5 subscriptions (how about a copy for work, donate to a school, grandparents or friends in a retirement home, etc.?), so please share this with your friends.

All applications must be turned into the office or on-line by Jan. 31. Check and Credit Card are the preferred payments. Cash is accepted, too.

Deerfield’s extraordinary Green Team is moving forward in its efforts to promote environmental awareness through a new recycling program.  Over the break, a Recycle Bin was installed in the front of our school next to our advertising banners.  Community members are encouraged to drop off any unwanted shoes/clothing/textiles for recycling.  The bin is available for drop-offs every day/all day…just place items in the bin and they are picked up at the end of the week!  Deerfield will receive a percentage of money back to the school based upon the number of pounds collected.  Please limit items to cloth textiles (no toys or other household items please).
