Message from the Chief School Administrator..........
Hello Deerfield Parents, Residents and Staff,
I am happy and fortunate to serve the students and community of Deerfield. During my time at Deerfield Township School, I've come to realize that the school and the community are special places. There are people here who truly care about the success and well-being of the children and the future of the town. I look forward to collaborating with staff, the Board of Education and residents. I will work with all stakeholders to accomplish the mission of Deerfield Township School.
Part of the mission reads, "We believe that each child is a unique and precious individual with strengths and varying learning styles, and is entitled to an education that encourages performance to the limit of his/her potential. Learning is the result of a strong partnership of parents, teachers, and the community. Students are challenged to be active participants in the quest for excellence." (DTS Mission Statement, 2007). This mission is most important because it's all about our children.
I am excited and hopeful when I read the plaque that hangs in the main lobby. It reads, "Through these doors pass the greatest students and parents on earth. Welcome to our school!"
Let's have an enjoyable and successful school year!
Mark T. Jones, Ed.D.
