    Our School Board has changed the District Volunteer Application Policy, requiring all volunteers to fill out new applications every 2 years (the previous policy was every 4 years).  To fill out a new application, click on the Parent link at the top of our web site, then click on Volunteer Information.  That link will take you to the district Volunteer Information page, where you will find the link to fill out a new application.  If you are not sure if you need to fill out a new application at this time, please e-mail our Head Secretary, Michelle Melville, at melville@gresham.k12.or.us.

Principal's Message

Ms. Keeton

Ms. Keeton

As Principal of Deep Creek-Damascus K-8 it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school! DCD is the only K-8 school in the Gresham-Barlow School District and we value the unique opportunity to develop relationships with students and families over their years here with us.

 We are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for our students.  We work to engage each child in rich, rigorous, and authentic learning experiences. Children are naturally curious, and we desire to foster and grow that curiosity in all subject areas.

We focus on developing the whole child, addressing the intellectual, academic and character growth of each one.  As you walk through our halls and visit our classrooms you will see evidence of meaningful academic work, caring relationships, and outstanding student art.

It is my pleasure and privilege to partner with the people who comprise the DCD Community as we learn, explore and grow together.
