Jump Rope For Heart-Update
PHYSICAL EDUCATION NEWS FROM COACH BERTUCCI
Kudos on an awesome JUMP ROPE FOR HEART!
Thank you to all 291 students and staff who contributed donations to the American Heart Association. We raised a total of $6025.00 for the AHA. Congratulations to our top 3 donation collectors: Olivia Thorpe, Angel Wright and Tristan Thompson. These three students will have a chance to do the ice bucket challenge on Coach Bertucci.
As we all learned from this great community event donating even $1 makes you a great HEART HERO! I am so proud of our DBES family.
All prizes have been ordered and it takes 3-4 weeks for them to arrive at DBES.

Title 1 Survey
Good things are happening at Deerfield Beach Elementary School. Although we still have a full quarter to go, we already have some great things in the planning stages for the 2015-2016 school year. We would like to personally invite you go online to and complete the annual Title I Survey so that we may use your important input as we plan for the new school year. We need to hear, firsthand about your thoughts and ideas regarding our processes, as well as about our significant efforts in teaching and learning. You can access the survey here:
Students have also been randomly selected to receive a paper version of this survey. You may be receiving a white envelope with a survey inside. If you find one in your childís book bag today or tomorrow, please complete it and send it back in to your child's teacher. If you didn't receive an envelope and can't access the Title I survey online, we have extra paper copies in the front office.
Any students who return a Title I survey or proof it was completed on line will automatically be entered to win a $25 gift card to Toys R Us when we return from Spring Break. We will have a drawing on April 20th and announce the winner on morning announcements.
Our doors are open every day, but we put a special welcome mat at each of our events to listen to our parents by making it a priority for you to be heard. Please consider going online to take the Title I Parent survey or spending a few extra minutes with us when you visit by completing the survey in the front office. We look forward to reviewing our results and using them as a blue print for our 2015-16 school year planning. Please share your thoughts and let us learn to grow together to meet all students' needs.
