Hello Deer Canyon Families,
As the proud Principal of Deer Canyon Elementary, I am thrilled to extend a warm and enthusiastic welcome to all of our new and returning eagle families. I hope this letter finds you rejuvenated and in high spirits as we embark on the 23-24 academic year.
This year, we are excited to introduce new training and initiatives that will enhance our overall educational experience for your children. Our focus remains steadfast on delivering dynamic and engaging curriculum that meets the diverse needs of all of our students. The overall education and well-being of our students continues to be a top priority at Deer Canyon. Our teachers will continue to engage our students in social-emotional lessons weekly, our new School Counselor will provide proactive approaches for social-emotional needs and behavior, and our District counseling team will continue to provide guidance and support, to ensure that each student’s emotional and mental health needs are met. At Deer Canyon we believe that a happy and confident student is best positioned for academic success.
Our theme this year is Let’s Grow Together. This year at Deer Canyon we are going to work together to see growth in all of our eagles in their academics, their attendance, and social emotional learning. My continued vision for our school is to ensure that all students are inspired to achieve both academically and socially. We strive at Deer Canyon to foster a positive school culture that provides a safe environment where students can learn and achieve at the highest level. We recognize that our parents/guardians are integral partners and we look forward to working together to continue making Deer Canyon the best elementary school. As your Principal, it is important to me that every person who steps through our doors feels welcome and excited to be here. This attitude will enable us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.
I am thrilled to move into another school year with the best school community around.
With Eagle Pride,
Jenny Rice, Principal
