Come see the perfect date night show, Deerfield High School’s fall production of Almost, Maine, by John Cariani running October 9-12 at 7:30 pm in the Studio Theater. On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Tickets are $7 in the DHS Bookstore or free with Activity Pass. Don’t miss it!
The DHS softball program is offering a professional “Portraits in the Park” day on Sunday, October 20. Individuals, couples, families, groups and pets welcome! Professional photographers will take the pictures in an outdoor setting, including beautiful fall colors on the Deerfield High School grounds, located just east of the school. Reserve a sitting time by contacting Pam Horwitz at email@example.com or 847-722-4244. Specific times will be offered at sign-up.
Parents: this Homecoming, don't let the kids have all the fun! Treat yourself to a night out while supporting your high school.

Any contribution to the Foundation of $20 or more during the months of August, September, and the first week of October will entitle the donor to a discount card for 10% off of the dining bill for use at many local restaurants from September 27 through October 6.

DHS environmental sciences classes, some Spanish classes and the Earthworks club are again holding a large rummage sale in the school cafeteria on Columbus Day weekend. The money raised goes toward building homes for homeless families. Anyone from the area is welcome to drop off donations at the school on Friday, Oct. 11, and shop at the sale from Saturday, Oct 12 through Monday, Oct 14.
From now through October 3rd, Student Outreach Services will again be running our annual Hands to Paws charity drive to benefit area animal shelters. This is a chance for us to help a voiceless population that is often overlooked, but in a tough economy continues to need our support. SOS is looking to collect the following donations: dog/cat food (wet/dry); kitty litter; dog/cat toys; newspapers, cleaning products appropriate for an animal shelter (bleach, paper towels, etc.); blankets.
Students can help the cause in one of two ways: make a donation of any of the above in one of the collection boxes that will be set up soon near either the front school entrance, rear entrance, or library. You can also bring any donations to X-117. If you have a homeroom, encourage members of your homeroom to bring in any of the above throughout the drive.
Even a little bit goes a long way for our area animal shelters, so thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide.
