Some of the initiatives you will read and watch about are sponsored by the district, while others are stories about our community simply going out of their way to be kind to others!

2nd Annual Food & Supply Drive: November 1-5, 8-10

  • Deerfield Public Schools is proud to announce our 2nd Annual 109 Gives Back Food & Supply Drive benefiting the West Deerfield Township Food Pantry! From November 1-5 and 8-10, bins will be placed inside the front entrance of all six of our buildings for students and staff to place items in. Our goal as a district is to collect 5,000 items to help those in need! That's roughly two items per student! Any non-perishable donation is appreciated, but we are asking schools to focus on certain items so that we can offer the food pantry a variety of goods! Find your school below to see what we need most!

    Thank you for helping to support this districtwide cause!
