UPCOMING EVENTS AT DEER CREEK
December 6 Movie Night sponsored by the PTO
December 12 2nd Grade Music Program
Dec 23- Jan 1 Winter Break
January 2 School Resumes
Our doors open at 7:30am for those students who will be eating breakfast. If your child does not eat breakfast at school your child should NOT arrive to school before 7:45am. We do not have enough adult supervision to ensure your child is properly supervised.
School begins at 8:00am. Due to the the winter conditions, please allow extra time in your morning routine/commute.
All students need to have coats, snowpants, boots, hats and gloves/mittens. We go outside each day for recess unless it is -15 degrees temperature or windchill.
Please help us by visiting with your child(ren) about staying off the snowhills on the school property before and after school. This is dangerous for many reasons due to traffic and no adult supervision.

RAISE SOME DOUGH! Thursday December 12
We’re gearing up for our very first Papa Murphy’s RAISE SOME DOUGH night!!! Papa Murphys has generously accepted Deer Creek for one of their Thursday night “Raise Some Dough” events. The second Thursday of each month is ALL OURS!!! Deer Creek’s PTO will be the recipients of a donation from Papa Murphys ($3 per pizza) and it’s SO EASY to participate…you just need to eat some pizza for dinner that night!!
Students will be provided with a half sheet flyer which must be brought with to Papa Murphys on the day of the Raise Some Dough event - December 12! When paying for your pizza purchase, provide the paper flier (put your teacher’s name at the bottom), and it’s just that easy!! The classrooms that have the most representation in the event will win a pizza party from Papa Murphys!
Bring us Your Box Tops
You can now find our PTO on the Box Top app!! You can scan receipts to earn box top rewards for Deer Creek! The PTO has voted to set a goal to earn $1,000 in box top money this year. We want to use that money to purchase a large popcorn maker for future events. Help us by filling up our popcorn box! Each kernel represents $50. Every clipped box top and scanned receipt helps!
LOST & FOUND
OH NO! Our Lost and Found is overflowing already! If your student has misplaced their coat, lunch box or clothing, encourage them to check the LOST & FOUND.

School-Based Sealant Program
Seal! North Dakota School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program
In 2012, The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) implemented the Seal! North Dakota School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program. The dentist and/or dental hygienist visit each school two times a year (fall and spring), to provide direct preventive services. Services include: oral health education, dental exam/screening, teeth cleaning, dental sealants and fluoride varnish application. A parent/guardian signed consent form is required to participate in the Seal! North Dakota Program.
Any student who does not already have a regular dentist may sign up if they have a completed and signed parent/guardian consent form. A result sheet (what the child had done), toothbrush, floss, and a small prize will be provided to each child that is seen. Maple Family Dental will be providing the services at your school; watch for more information to come!
