Mr. Goetz's Corner
We had a great week of learning together at Deerfield. The highlight for me was seeing all of our friends who were able to come out and have their picture taken on Wednesday. What a wonderful opportunity to interact, however briefly, with our students in that venue. Thanks to everyone who made the day a success, including our awesome staff and parents. A special thanks also, to those who committed to supporting the Stach family in their time of need, by purchasing masks and t-shirts. If you are interested in buying either a mask or t-shirt, please see the forms below.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Positivity Project Weekly Theme: Forgiveness
This week's theme is forgiveness. Forgiveness is a conscious decision to release your feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person/group who has harmed you, regardless of whether or not they deserve your forgiveness.
