PLEASE DO NOT USE North playground black top to drop off your child in the morning.

With your help we can earn hundreds of dollars! Collecting box tops is a great and very easy way to earn money for our school. Every box top is worth 10 cents and they add up quickly.

Some of you may not yet be familiar with our school's Deerfield Buck$ fundraising program. Simply by purchasing gift cards to use at Hy-Vee, Dillons, and The Merc, we can earn money for Deerfield's PTO, which provides funds for teaching supplies, after-school tutoring, outdoor equipment, field trip buses, garden and pond upkeep, staff appreciation, Marathon Club, Ice Cream Social, etc., and also heads up our Carnival, Book Fair, Science Fair, and more. Since all families buy groceries, this ongoing fundraiser is a simple way to help provide financial support to our children's school without needing to sell anything to family and neighbors.
