Featuring Goosebumps!

Thank you, Deer Park!

January 5, 2017

Just prior to our holiday break, Deer Park students, staff, and community members came together to share “real” joy and love by filling food bags and gathering gifts for the needy in our community.

Due to the weather, Deer Park Schools is cancelling all after-school and evening activities.

Mr. Smiley went to Camp Kern today and he is happy to report your students are having a wonderful time learning about the great outdoors. However, after he left this afternoon, we were informed the lake will be closed tomorrow.

Keeping You Informed

October 6, 2016

We are writing to inform you that late last night two men were found on the roof of Holmes Elementary. Our night custodian heard the noise and notified the Sycamore Township Police Department. Should the need arise, we will provide you with an update, but at this time there is no risk to our students or staff.

Continuing our series of releases on the annual report card, today we would like to help you better understand the K-3 Literacy component of the report card.
