Event description

Description

We are thrilled to invite you to participate in the 23rd Annual Creek Classic Race, which is scheduled

for March 2, 2019. Last year’s race attracted over 1500 runners from all over the state, and this year

we are anticipating even more!


What makes Creek Classic such a great race is that it is an event our entire Deer Creek community

can rally behind to support the students in our district. It is the single largest fundraising event in the

district, and its proceeds benefit every single school, elementary through high school. In the past, we

have had a portion of the funds raised go to causes like Backpack for Kids and this year is no

different. This year’s worthy cause is our Deer Creek Transition Center.


The Deer Creek Transition Center (DCTC) is the first of its kind. Its focus will be on providing support

and assistance for our special needs students and helping them learn to live and work

independently. DCTC is scheduled to open for the 2019-2020 school-year and will service students

with disabilities from middle school through graduation. Students will be able to gain real-life

experiences in a safe environment.


You may be thinking, “Why does Deer Creek Schools need a fundraiser of this size? Don’t those items

come out of the school budget?” The truth is, like many schools, Deer Creek has seen state

educational funding decrease over the years, forcing the district to make up the difference, even as

our student population continues to increase rapidly. Also, Deer Creek receives only a very small

portion of its budget from federal Title money. This means our district relies on our local community to

provide funding needed to create the best possible educational experience for our students.
