Arts, Civics and Science Enhance Voting Night


While serving as the site for the district’s annual budget vote and board election on May 19, Deer Park High School welcomed the community with an exciting array of activities and displays highlighting the creativity and talent of students from each of the district’s schools. As visiting families wandered the halls, they enjoyed an art show, Shakespearian scene performances and a science fair in the gymnasium. In the cafeteria, elementary students from JFK, JQA and May Moore learned about civics by participating in a mock vote.

Earning the prestigious title of Merit Scholar, Class of 2015 salutatorian Aaron Zhang has been named a National Merit $2,500 Scholarship winner.

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation selected Zhang for this honor due to his outstanding academic accomplishments. He was one of just 7,600 named Merit Scholars out of more than 15,000 finalists in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program, held by the NMSC since 1955.

Zhang and other winning students can use their $2,500 award at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university.

Hippotherapy Happiness for SADD Students


High school SADD Club students took a trip to Pal-O-Mine Equestrian in Islandia on May 8 to meet the horses used in the center’s hippotherapy program for individuals with disabilities. The students learned about Pal-O-Mine’s equipment and the care and feeding of the horses,  took a tour of the facility, and even got a chance to see the center’s mini-farm with goats, sheep and donkeys.

“The students were impressed by how docile the horses were,” said adviser Janet Werner. “For many, it was their first time being so close to a horse.”

From Poetry to Dessert in Deer Park


The district’s department of world languages and ENL celebrated National Poetry Month by hosting “International Poetry Festival: A Night of Poetry, Milk and Cookies” on April 16.

At the event, students from kindergarten through 12th grade – representing the high school, Robert Frost, JFK, JQA and May Moore – recited both original and famous poems in French, Italian, Spanish and English in front of an audience of family and friends. Students also prepared and performed songs in the various languages of study. The delightful evening culminated with milk and cookies for all.

Cello virtuoso Jillian Annie Bloom, a member of the Aiana String Quartet and alumna of the Manhattan School of Music, visited the high school on May 8 to work with orchestra students.
