Parent Input Form for 2018-19

Deep Wood Families,

As we begin to make plans for the 2018-2019 school year, you are invited to provide input as to how we can best meet your child’s needs at Deep Wood Elementary. Your input is valuable as class placement decisions are made. Fifth-grade parents DO NOT have to complete this form and many parents have already completed it! This form is due by May 1, 2018. The information you provide, along with input from school staff members, will assist us in placing your child appropriately. Many variables contribute to the successful placement of children into classes; therefore, requests for specific teachers will not be honored. As always, thank you for supporting Deep Wood. Click here to access the form.
