New Families - For all those that are new to Deephaven School this year and have not been
contacted by our new families committee or a sponsor family, please call Stacey Douville at

able to answer any questions that you have about the school. We can talk about outside
activities as well such as sports or even after-school clubs. We have a lot of helpful and
friendly families and would hate to miss anyone that is new to our school. Please call and we
