    Once again this year, K-5 students will pay a $25 Supply Fee (they do not bring any supplies to school), and students in grades 6-8 will bring their own supplies.  Please make sure your 6-8 grade student is prepared for class by getting their school supplies ready prior to the first day of school.  They will need to bring all of their supplies on the first day of school, and teachers will store the supplies to use throughout the year.  

    Students in grades 6-8 also pay a $25 Student Body Fee, which helps pay for planners, assemblies, awards, socials, and other education activities.

    For more details, and the detailed supply list, click on the link below.

Principal's Message

Ms. Keeton



Degrees and Certifications:

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.
