    Dear DPE Family,


    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited to welcome you to a wonderful new school year here at Deerfield Park Elementary. Our theme this year is “Wild About Learning”. 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 to ensure that your child receives the best education possible.

    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. Our gates open at 8:15am. Free breakfast is provided for all students between 8:20am – 8:50am. After 8:50am students must consume outside breakfast items (McDonald’s, Dunkin Donut, etc) prior to entering the building.

    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 for our wonderful students!
