Library News

Please come see us in the library! There are lots of books that are due and we are happy to renew them for your student. We also want to be sure they are finding lots of new books to read.

We are approaching the end of the year. If your student has books out that are getting overdue notices sent to you, please help them look for them. All books need to be returned to the library by May 12. Thank you for your help in this matter.

It is almost time for Summer Reading at the Metropolitan Library. To get all the information please visit the Metro Library website here. It is so important that students are reading each day during the summer!

One of the things I am most excited about with our Literati Book Fair is their subscription book boxes. It is like Stitch Fix, but with books! For $9.95 a month Literati will hand pick 5 books for your reader. Each month a beautiful box will arrive at your home. You and your reader choose which books you would like to keep and only pay for those. If you purchase all five, you get a 5% discount. The best part is, DCIS receives 10% of every dollar with book boxes ordered. It is a great way to add a little variety for your reader and help our school library at the same time! If you would like more information or to purchase you can go to literati.com/schoolbox. Even though our book fair is over, you are still welcome to order their book boxes.

Please talk with your student about what they are reading. Books are a great way to start a conversation and learn more about each other and the world we live in. Have a great week of reading!

STOP IT Crisis Text Line

We are pleased to announce that Deer Creek has enrolled with Crisis Text Line provided by STOPit Solutions. Crisis Text Line is a platform that serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support via a medium people already use and trust. A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds, all from a secure online platform.

Being in crisis doesn’t always mean wanting to take your own life. It means any painful emotion and anytime you need support. If you find you are in crisis you can follow these simple steps to reach out to a Crisis Counselor:

1. Open you STOPit App

2. Press the Crisis Text Line button

3. You will be connected to a Crisis Counselor

4. You will then text back and forth with the Crisis Counselor. You never have to share anything you don’t want to.

5. Counselor can provide other resources that may be available depending on the crisis/situation

6. The conversation typically ends when you and your Crisis Counselor both feel comfortable deciding that you are in a “cool” safe place and your Crisis Counselor may provide resources.
