Wanted:  Gently Used Essential Elements Books for Orchestra

Mrs. DeBella is looking for some extra Essential Elements books for the orchestra.  The title is Essential Elements book 1 for violin, viola, cello, or bass.  Students will be using them for lessons and concerts.  If you have a child who is no longer participating in strings and are willing to donate the book, she will gladly take it.  Thanks for your help!

MSDE Climate Survey

Deep Run will administer a state mandated school climate survey to all fifth grade students. The 20-30 minute computer based survey is scheduled for the week of October 22nd and will be conducted during Technology classes. The purpose of the survey is to gain valuable information about the quality and character of the school learning environment to help school administrators and teachers support student learning. The students' responses will be reported out for our school and the overall district. Students' individual responses will remain confidential, and will not be reported to the school or district. For more details on the survey please visit:
