Deerwood Family,

    GREETINGS!  It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to the 2016 -2017 academic year.  Summer vacation is quickly coming to an end, and we have been very busy planning and working to ensure a great school opening, 

    I am privileged to be afforded the opportunity to return to Deerwood as your Principal.  Further, I feel honored to work with our brilliant scholars, supportive parents, and highly qualified and dedicated staff for the 2016-2017 academic year.  The elementary years are critical in the social, emotional, and academic development for children and families; therefore, as a lifelong educator with a love for learning, who is committed to students and families, I look forward to collaborating with all stakeholders to make this school year successful.

    Throughout their vacation this summer, our faculty and staff have been preparing for the arrival of our scholars. They have attended Professional Learning trainings, developed transdisciplinary programs of inquiry, and are prepared to use assessment results to implement differentiated strategies in order to meet the needs of each scholar in their care.

    Moreover, our faculty and staff, inclusive of our environmental services personnel, have been working hard in preparing our facilities, lessons, and classrooms in preparation for an exciting and productive year at Deerwood.


    Educationally Yours,

    Camisha L. Perry, Ed.S.
