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.   

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!   I hope that you’ll follow us on Twitter (@DCEgreatnesswithin1)
