    Hello Jr. Buck family,

    It is my honor to serve this community as your 7th grade Assistant Principal.  I am delighted to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year!  Deerfield Beach Middle is a school that is steeped in tradition and school pride, and we will continue to work together to support our students, staff, parents, and community members in a safe and engaging learning environment for all.   In addition, we will ensure that we maintain the high expectations inherent in a whole school IB program and continue to challenge our learners with relevant coursework that helps them grow both academically and emotionally.  Our mission is to continually challenge our students to be the best they can be and provide a multitude of resources and opportunities to help them reach their goals, develop into confident leaders, and succeed as productive members of society.

    A long-standing culture exists here, and I am very proud to be surrounded by a fantastic group of students, parents, staff, and community members.

    Mrs. Matias Dear Jr. Bucks,

    Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year.  I am excited to be with the Deerfield Beach Middle School family as the 6th-grade Assistant Principal.  As our new Jr. Bucks transition to 6th grade, I look forward to building new and lasting relationships with students and parents.  I would like each student to receive the best education while preparing to be college and career ready.   I am dedicated to ensuring that students feel supported throughout their educational journey either within the school building or a virtual classroom.  My objective is to work with all stakeholders to create a positive learning environment where students can reflect on their emotional growth and gain the skills needed to achieve their academic goals.   “Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

    Thank you, Michele Matias, Assistant Principal 6th Grade Administrator
