News and Event

Journey School Picture Program--Return the Pictures You are not Buying

Please review the pictures and decide which sheets you want to purchase.  Keep the ones you want and return the other photos with a check (for the sheets purchased) made out to Strawbridge Studios to school ASAP.

Police Patrols at HCPSS Schools--Building Positive Relationships

In response to recent events and in conjunction with the Howard County School System, the Howard County Police Department has implemented an initiative where police officers will incorporate at least one school "walk through" per shift into their work routine. This will occur a few days during the school week.  This opportunity is a positive one and has not been initiated because of any specific incident at Deep Run Elementary or any other school.  This initiative will give staff, students and the police officers a chance to foster relationships with each other so that we can continue to promote a positive school environment where all members of the school community feel safe.  For Deep Run, this will be a continuation of the already positive relationship we have with the Howard County Police Department.  Officers are often in our building reading to classes, having lunch with students, or participating in special events like Hero of the Day, Read Across Deep Run Day, Career Day, Otto the Auto, and Kindness Week.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

2nd Annual Invention Convention

This year Deep Run Elementary will again be hosting an Invention Convention. It is designed to promote problem-solving and creative-thinking skills. The goal of the Invention Convention is to invent a new product or develop a new method for completing a task. This is a 21st century skill that will be critical to our children's success in the future.

The Invention Convention will be held on May 3, 2017, during our Schoolwide Enrichment Fair (6:30-8:00 p.m.). Certificates will be awarded to each participant. We know your child will enjoy and benefit from this experience in scientific problem solving.

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration is open. To register for kindergarten, children must be five years old by September 1, 2018.  All children must be registered by their custodial parent (biological, adoptive, legal guardian.)

This year HCPSS will introduce a new online registration process.  Starting Thursday, March 1, you will find a link on the main HCPSS website to begin the online process. HOWEVER, you will still need to come in during Kindergarten registration week to complete the process.  Read more.

International Night--Families Needed

International Night is April 20 from 6:00-8:00 PM at Deep Run.  The event is richer, more informative, and better the more families we have sign up to bring food, perform in the showcase, set up a table display or bring a culturally significant game.  If you are able to participate in any of those please complete the form and have your child deliver it to their homeroom teacher.

Deep Run Learning Together Program

The Deep Run Regional Early Childhood Center (RECC) toddler and preschool programs are making preparations for classes for the 2018-19 school year.  These classes include children with and without disabilities.  The program’s focus is helping all children develop communication, literacy, math, problem solving, motor, and social skills.  Parents of children who will be 3 by September 1st or 4 years of age may pick up an application package in the front office.

All applications must be returned by the last Friday in March. A limited number of openings are available for children without disabilities.  Children are selected based upon screening information given on the application form and the “Ages and Stages Questionnaire,” as well as observations of the child’s participation in a playgroup.  If necessary, a lottery process is conducted.  

If you have any questions, please contact Ruth Gibson at (410) 313-5000.
