    *Students and staff participated in a practice lock down this morning.  Students did a great job staying quiet and following lock down procedures!*


    Deep River School has entered the Michael and Son’s 2019 Jingle Sing Off.  If we win, Mr. Davis will be able to purchase new instruments for the music room for students to use for years to come.  


    In order to win, we need to have the highest number of votes in the Raleigh, NC market.  To vote you must be logged in on a Facebook account, click the square with the heart underneath the Deep River School.  If the vote is counted the number beside the heart will change. You can vote once every 24 hours, so if you vote at 6 pm tonight, you will be able to vote again at 6pm tomorrow night.  Polls will close Midnight of December 20th, 2019.  Make sure to vote everyday.

    The Deep River Student Council would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd Annual HAVEN Winter Wear/Toy Drive. The dates are 11-12-19 through 12-6-19. The Student Council will hand deliver items to HAVEN on December 12th. 
    HAVEN stands for Helping Abuse & Violence End Now. It is a local safe haven for women and children escaping domestic abuse. They provide counseling and a safe place to stay while they seek assistance and a safe more permanent place to stay.

    *We are accepting new and clean gently used winter wear--coats, gloves, scarves, mittens, toboggans, socks, even newly packaged underwear for women and children.

    * We are also accepting new and GENTLY USED and CLEAN toys, puzzles, games, and books/movies for children from birth to teenagers.


    Thank you so much for your generous spirit this Christmas season. Every child deserves to feel safe and to have a new toy or book for Christmas.

    For more information or if you have questions please contact Laura Thomas at
