    Dear DPE Family,                               

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. We are excited to welcome you to a wonderful new school year here at Deerfield Park Elementary. Our theme this year is “Setting The Stage For Success”. Throughout the school year, you will be informed of new initiatives in academics, social/emotional learning, and school safety.  We look forward to your continuous collaboration this year, as we reach for an “A” school rating!

    We are committed to providing a rich academic environment to ensure that all of our students are college and career ready. Parents, it is extremely important that your child arrives on time to school each day. Currently our school has an extended day in order to provide additional assistance to our students in the area of Literacy. Free breakfast is provided for all students at 8:00am, and our school hours are 8:35pm – 3:35pm.

    As a Magnet School of Visual and Performing Arts, we are dedicated to providing your child with an educational experience designed to develop their unique talents. We need the continued cooperation of our parents, community partners, and stakeholders to ensure that our school continues to shine. We encourage parents to participate in our School Advisory Council (SAC) Meetings, join our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), or serve as a volunteer. 

    We are looking forward to having an amazing year “Setting The Stage For Success” for our wonderful students!
