TEACHER/STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK (May 2 -May 6)

Let’s show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate all the work they do every single day for our children. Your incredibly generous donations will be used on showering our teachers and staff with 3 days of food and fabulous gifts.  
 
Please send back special notes written on the colorful cards sent home this week in the Falcon Folder (also attached here: TAW Thank you cards) on Wednesday, May 4.  The kids can deliver them directly to their special recipients.  Please encourage your child to think of as many teachers and staff members as they can for the special notes!  You can print out more cards if you need them!  For questions, please contact Chantelle Labowe at cecerika@cox.net.  Thank you for your partnership!

President’s Message

Welcome

GET CONNECTED!!!

Dear Deerfield families,

Welcome back to all of our returning Deerfield families and a warm hello to the new families who are joining us. We hope you made loads of fun memories this summer and are excited to start a new school year! Along with our new principal, Dr. Julie Hatchel, and our super star teachers and staff, the Deerfield Elementary Parent Teacher Association (Deerfield PTA) is excited to kick off 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 will return this year, including the Reflections, Yearbook, Jog-A-Thon, talent show, assemblies, Book Fairs, Pancake Breakfast and Family Fun Night (a.k.a. International Potluck) to name a few. The Deerfield PTA is also excited to announce new activities to bring our community together through Dads Club, a carnival, Dine Outs, and a dance party among others. In addition, we’ll 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 visit the PTA Welcome Tent during the first week of school to sign up for membership and volunteer opportunities and to simply say “hello!” We’d love to meet you!

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. Also, if you’re a Facebook user, please like our page, Deerfield Elementary PTA, and you’ll be connected to PTA updates.

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 for the new school year to all of us! Go Falcons!
