Dear Deerfield families,
Happy New Year! Welcome back to all of our returning Deerfield families and a warm hello to the new families who are joining us.
Along with Principal Dr. Julie Hatchel, Assistant Principal Amber Smith, and our super star teachers and staff, the Deerfield Elementary Parent Teacher Association (Deerfield PTA) is excited to continue with another unforgettable year.
The Deerfield PTA is looking forward to continuing our long tradition of providing enriching and vital support to the Deerfield community at large. Many of our favorite programs have returned this year, including the Reflections, Yearbook sales, an in-house Jog-A-Thon, fun informative assemblies, Book Fairs, Dine Out Nights, and other fun events. In addition, the Deerfield PTA will continue to render classroom support through teacher grants and salary supplements for selective classified staff.
In order for all of these wonderful things to happen at Deerfield, we need your support and assistance, especially via fundraising and volunteering. Thank you to all of you who have already and continue to share your resources and volunteer hours to our organization, our teachers and most importantly, our students! If you’re new to Deerfield or haven’t yet joined our efforts, please make this year the year you make a difference and get involved! For starters, please sign up for membership and volunteer opportunities. Membership packets are available in the front office. If you see me out and about be sure to say “hello!” I’m always around :).
Throughout the school year, please be sure to check our PTA website (www.dfpta.com) which will be updated with the latest and greatest in PTA news, programs and various sign-ups. You can also sign up with our Remind app to receive reminders. Visit your Apple app store or Google Playstore and search for ‘Remind’. Join Deerfield PTA’s class and receive reminders.
Thank you for all your advocacy efforts on behalf of the Deerfield PTA. Without you, we would not be able to serve Every Child with One Voice. Best wishes to all of us for a fun and productive school year!
