Principal's Message... 

It was a great pleasure to meet so many parents of our new 6th grade class at the parent workshops on Tuesday and Thursday. The sessions were very well-attended and I was happy to hear from many of you that they gave you great information. I realize we have a LOT going on at the beginning of the year, but there is a lot to know about Deal and how to get what you need for your children.

I want to thank the following teachers for coming BOTH nights to lead sessions or help manage the event: Mr. Ngwa, Ms. Azimi, Ms. Ellsberry - Carter, Ms. Dziato, Ms. Lerum, Ms. Clements, Mr. Downing, Mr. Ager, Ms. Curran, Ms. Nakamura, Ms. Quinn, Ms. Philip, Ms. Winkowski, Ms. Banal, Ms. Maddrey, Ms. Scott, Ms. White, Ms. Ruiz (Brittingham), Mr. Gueltig, Mr. McDowell, Mr. Martis, Ms. D. Jackson, Ms. Law, Ms. Purcell (LoFaro), Ms. Venezia, Mr. Martini, Ms. Burnham, and Mr. Siddiqui. This group of teachers and staff truly rock. (An additional shout-out to all the members of the administrative team as well!)

Our next big event is Tuesday's Back-to-School Night, starting at 6:30. Families will go through their children's schedule, period by period, meeting teachers and lear  ning about the curriculum in each class. Although not a time for one-on-one conferences with teachers, the night should give you an excellent idea of who is in front of your children and what the experience is like. Parking is ALWAYS a challenge, so all who would like to take a pleasant evening stroll to Deal are welcome and encouraged.

Preceding the main event is our Music Information Night, starting at 5:45 in the cafeteria on the 10th as well. Families who want to find out about our ensemble groups - instrumental and choir - are encouraged to attend. This year, Deal has added two vocal directors to the repertoire of ensembles to demonstrate our commitment to a great arts program (thank you PTA!). Come and meet our three Deal music teachers as well as the vocal directors.

Finally, this is Deal Support Week for the PTA. We are asking that each of you join up with the PTA to help maintain the level of activities at Deal that you know and love. In the first few weeks alone, the PTA has helped significantly: welcoming our new teachers, providing playground equipment, supporting professional development, funding our Period 8 initiative, purchasing needed school supplies, and much more. The Deal PTA takes a wise non-invasive approach - get people to sign up and support, run just a couple of big events, and let the magic happen. This week is very important to their efforts. You, readers of this newsletter, get to decide whether we can get a new laptop, support a student to China who couldn't go, provide a scholarship for a student to Hemlock, or make sure that every student participates in every activity. It only happens because of your support.

Thank you for doing your part.

Students must have parental permission to stay after school


The Alice Deal Library welcomes students for reading and homework after school! Students must have a permission form on file in the library to use the space after school. Students may pick up a form in the library, or may download it from the library website (Library Pass). 

International Baccalaureate


My name is Ms. Alieze Stallworth and I am one of the assistant principals at Deal as well as the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP) coordinator. The role of the IB coordinator is to provide guidance and support on the implementation of the Middle Years Program.  As assistant principal, I also work with the administrative leadership and the instructional development teams on all aspects of teaching and learning in the school.


This year has been, and will continue to be, an exciting and busy year for the IB MYP at Deal.   This summer the administrative team attended the IB Americas Conference where we met IB representatives and school leaders from  around the world. Deal teachers attended IB subject area workshops in preparation for the current school year as well as for 2014, when the MYP will implement several changes. This fall, Deal will undergo its first IB evaluation since authorization. The purpose of the evaluation visit is to provide the school with feedback on the implementation of the IB MYP. The entire school community will have a role in the evaluation process on November 7th and 8th. Parents, students, teachers, and school staff will be asked to participate in focus groups. The evaluation team will also visit classrooms. 


This year, Deal will continue to build students' awareness of the ten IB Learner Profile attributes. Each month grade-level teams will identify the students on their team who embody one of the attributes. The attributes are: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, and Reflective.  Teachers will also work with students to develop the Approaches to Learning skills. The skills are organized into five categories: Communication; Self-Management; Social Skills; Research; and Thinking.


During the month of September, teachers will identify the student on their team who best fits the Learner Profile Risk-taker.

Bus Information '13-'14
If your child travels on the 4 bus routes that WMATA makes available for Deal students, here are some important phone numbers for you.

If the D31 or D32 bus is late, misses a pick-up, or never shows up, please call the Western District Superintendent, Ms. Jacqueline Smith, at 202-962-5684 as soon as possible. Her email is [email protected]. Students who are passed should try to get the bus identification number. If your child rides the D33 or D34, the Northern Division contact is Ms. Priscilla Alston. She can be reached directly at 202-309-0783. Her email is [email protected].

As always, please send an email about bus problems or concerns to j[email protected]

Here is a link to the bus route schedule.

1) The Office of Youth Engagement now identifies students who accrue 10 unexcused absences as "chronically truant."


2) Students must be referred to court once they have reached 15 unexcused absences.


3) Students must be at school 80% of the entire school day in order to be considered "present".   



The ONLY excusable reasons for a student's late arrival and/or absence from school are as follows:

  • Illness or medical cause (a doctor's note is needed for 5 or more absences)
  • Medical or dental appointment 
  • Death of the student's immediate family
  • Summoned to attend in judicial proceeding 
  • Religious holiday
  • Lawful exclusion or expulsion from school
  • Failure of DC to provide transportation  
  • Emergency or circumstances approved by LEA

In order to be acknowledged as "excused", the student must provide a note to the attendance counselor (written or electronically) from the parent and/or guardian relaying  at least one of the reasons listed above.  


If you have any questions please contact the Welcome Center and ask to speak to the Attendance Counselor, Ms. Johnson. 

DCOne cards
Please make sure your child has bus fare until they receive their DCOne card from school. All replacements and new photos have been shot or ordered. Although some buses have let students on without a fare and in the absence of a card, this has not been universally true. The cards have been processed faster than expected, so some students have already been receiving theirs. Cards are being distributed for 6th graders through their home rooms as quickly as we receive them.
Student & parent information


New: Edline

All Deal classes will be active on Edline with homework and progress reports at the start of this week. Grades will be updated at the start of each week (before school opens on Monday). Early in the advisory, overall class averages will be left off of progress reports in order to avoid the distortion of grades due to placeholder assignments. Instead, students and parents are encouraged to focus on individual assignments. Are all assignments complete? Are assignments high quality? If you have class-specific questions please direct them to the course teacher. For general Edline questions and account support please contact [email protected] 


New: Spanish Humanities inaugurates biggest Spanish library collection in Deal history!

New: Conflict Resolution and Peer Mediation

Peer mediation is a process of conflict resolution in which trained student (or adult) mediators assist disputants to discuss and resolve a conflict. Mediation is available at Deal for student (and adult) disputes on a referral basis. If teachers or students are having a conflict or want to let someone know about a conflict situation, they can refer the situation to Ms. McFarland, the Peer Mediation coordinator. Mediation referral forms are available on the bookcase outside the counseling suite and can be left with a counselor or Ms. McFarland's box. Parents can refer a conflict situation by calling Ms. McFarland at (202) 939-2014. All previously trained mediators from any grade  are invited to participate in the mediation program and to attend our weekly meetings on Friday mornings at 8:00 am in Ms. McFarland's office.

Join Wilson Crew!

Did you know that 8th grade students can join the Wilson High School Crew team?  Come learn about Wilson Crew and the Learn to Row Program at an information meeting on Tuesday, September 10th from 7:00-8:15 pm at Wilson HS, Room 416. 

Learn to Row is a two week program running Monday through Thursday, from 4:30- 6:30 pm at the Thompson Boathouse on the Georgetown Waterfront.  Beginning rowers will learn rowing safety, boat handling and the basics of the rowing stroke, and will be introduced to the rigor and teamwork that characterizes Wilson Crew.
