Deerfield Parent Network (DPN) is an organization providing an open forum for parents to share ideas and learn new ones. DPN offers single-issue programming for District 109 and District 113.


We’re looking forward to another great school year & are busy preparing for our August 19th start.


We strongly encourage you to place orders for PTSO items and register for PTSO sponsored events online, before Spartan Day on August 14th . The following items are available for purchase:

  • PTSO membership*
  • 6th Grade Bash; 6th Grade Nightlife,; 6th Grade Social Dance
  • Deerfield Discount card (To be delivered at later date); SMS car magnet
  • Donate a book to Learning Commons; Families in Need Fund Donation
  • Teacher/Staff Holiday Gift Fund

We are once again using the PaperlessPTO, and your PTSO Membership includes registration for the PaperlessPTO app (directory), access to directory, PTSO weekly updates, discount membership rates for advance purchase of PTSO sponsored events, and more. Registration instructions are available on our website

*WHY JOIN SHEPARD PTSO: Join to help support your child’s school experience and enhance life at Shepard. The SHEPARD PTSO relies on membership fee donation in order to provide programing, sponsor events, and purchase educational items for our school that would otherwise not happen without the PTSO. We do NOT have an annual fundraising event and membership dues are a main source of fundraising. Help us reach our goal of 100 percent family participation/membership!

What does the PTSO Fund: Last year, thanks to our membership support, the SHEPARD PTSO was fortunate to have the funds to purchase many things that benefited all the students, including: Furniture for the Special Eduation rooms, track and field uniforms, portable PA system, digital scales in science labs, Career Fair, Cardboard Challenge, Drone and support for STEM lab, & much more.



Shepard special lunch is managed by Robin Bear and Lunch Solutions. Our favorite vendors will be returning. The registration instructions (attached) and link is available on the PTSO website and lunch website.

SPARTAN FEE DAY IS FRIDAY, AUGUST 14th (10am-1pm / 4:30pm-6pm)

Students can walk their schedules and pick up District items (gym uniforms and locks) from the Shepard staff. This is also a good time for students to bring their school supplies and put them in their lockers. If you can’t make it Spartan Day, please contact the office to schedule an alternate time. If you did not pre-order school supplies, see our website for a complete list:

Please check out our website at for a calendar of upcoming events, descriptions of programs & events, volunteer opportunities as well as FAQ’s.

Have a good day and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Steffanie Pinsky and Julie Calderon, Shepard PTSO Co-Presidents
