Hello Deer Canyon Families,
This year has been a busy one but there is so much to celebrate at Deer Canyon. I am so proud of all of the hard work all of our teachers and staff do to continue to provide an enriching and rewarding education to all of our Eagles.
I would like to highlight a couple of things that are happening at Deer Canyon.. First, our teachers have our WIN time in full swing. Our WIN (What I Need) time allows teachers to meet with students and provide them with intervention and enrichment opportunities in a small group environment. Second, we have been working hard this school year to promote the importance of regular attendance in order to improve overall student achievement. Our classroom competition has been a huge success. Our November 2022 attendance was at 92% and our November 2023 overall attendance was at 96%!! I was thrilled to recognize our classrooms with the top attendance for the first trimester with pizza parties last week.
As we look ahead, we will continue our commitment to growth this school year. Growing our attendance, our academics, and our social emotional learning. We will continue to strive to maintain our positive school culture where students can learn and achieve at the highest level. We are so thankful to our Deer Canyon families for partnering with us in your child’s education.
We look forward to continuing the journey together this year.
With Eagle PRIDE,
Jenny Rice, Principal
