Welcome to Deer Path Middle School!

One of our primary focuses at Deer Path is making sure that our students are welcomed and comfortable in their school! With remote learning this spring, bringing our incoming students to Deer Path Middle School has not been possible. So instead, we're sharing digital resources here to help us bring Deer Path Middle School to your students!

In this communication you will find information intended to support students and parents in the transition to Deer Path including introductions to our principals, buildings, pick-up, drop-off, and the daily life of a DPM student, and ways to get involved. Just click on the images to view!

summer reading informationWith summer approaching, we know that students and families are ready for some downtime. While the summer months are a wonderful opportunity to relax and rejuvenate, the break from the rigors of school can cause a lag in learning. Research demonstrates that students must read at least three challenging books during the summer break simply to maintain fluency and comprehension skills; a minimum of five such books is necessary to improve on any reading weaknesses. In addition, our goal is to foster and encourage a lifelong habit of reading - for pleasure as well as knowledge - in our students.

We have developed summer reading tasks with this in mind. This year, the requirements for each grade level are listed online at DPM Summer Reads. Our hope is that when students are selecting their novels they will choose ones that truly interest them. If your child is unsure about what to read, links to suggested titles are located within the website.
