Welcome to Deer Creek Elementary!  I’m honored to serve this community as campus principal and am truly excited about the 2019-2020 school year.  While your kids are enjoying summertime fun, our staff is working hard at district trainings and curriculum writing to prepare for your students.   Our Colts are amazing, and I’m grateful that we have a dedicated group of teachers and staff to support each child. 

Our mission statement is:  “Through positive relationships, we create a community where everyone is a learner who recognizes, respects, develops, and shares greatness within.”  I look forward to celebrating your child’s #greatnesswithin in 2019-2020!  Have a wonderful summer and we’ll see you at Meet the Teacher on August 13!  I hope that you’ll follow us on Twitter (@DCEgreatnesswithin1)
