The DCMS Grades of Green Team will be coordinating the ColorCycle program at our school.
Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house- even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included. Drop-off boxes will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers.
Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can continue to keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.
Deep Creek Middle is the Virginia state finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest – a nationwide competition that challenges students in grades 6-12 to apply STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills to find creative solutions to real-world issues impacting their local communities. In the months ahead, students will work with community partners to identify and assist students in need of corrective lenses. Students will solicit donations of glasses and create an app that will be used to match a student in need of glasses to resources.
Congratulations to Mrs. Labbe and Ms. Conkwright for this outstanding accomplishment. The team is made up of these amazing student: EJ Scott, Hunter Johnson, Daniel Anzures-Sanchez, Olivia Lyons, Sean Pornan, Tia Davis, and Riley Dreis.
Eighth Graders are going to Washington DC on June 7, 2019! Cost is $40.00. Permission slip required. Parents may send in cash or check or pay online with a credit card at Online School Payments.

Congratulations to our 2018-2019 Deep Creek Middle School Teacher of the Year, Misti Lucero-Wolf!
Paula Labbe, a science teacher at Deep Creek Middle School, was awarded a $2800 grant to support optics and photonics education from SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. SPIE partners with researchers, educators, and industry to advance light-based research and technologies for the betterment of the human condition. In 2017, SPIE provided $4 million in support of education and outreach programs. Mrs. Labbe will use the grant to purchase lab materials that will enhance student’s study of optics and photonics. The lab materials will be used in hands-on activities so students can explore and discover the properties of optics and photonics. Not only will students learn more and optics and photonics, active and engaged learning in the science classroom has a positive effect on students’ attitudes about science and their scientific reasoning skills. These grant materials will have a direct and long lasting impact on student learning at Deep Creek Middle School.
