Principal Marlene Ray
Deer Run is a diverse and multi-cultural community and the school traditionally sees a high rate of transiency. With work and family demands, some of our parents struggle to meet the requirements to support their child's literacy growth. Increased literacy skills remains a strong focus towards achieving greater student success.
Recent changes to our Learning Commons has resulted in some new reading resources (but never enough!), changes to the environment and an increase in parent volunteers to assist students. Our students gravitate to our central open-concept Learning Commons to talk over their day and to access some great reads.

As a child I loved reading and was always excited to discover a new book or series that I enjoyed. An early love of reading is so important to all aspects of learning!
