2019-2020 Board

Meet your 2019-2020 PTA Board

President –

Hello, I’m Jen Lingo, your PTA president for the 19-20 school year. I’m the proud mom of four kids; Grace (12th) and Sadie (10th) at Sickles High School, and Max (2nd) and Ava (1st) at Deer Park. I’ve been proud to be involved with, and serve on, the PTA board since my eldest daughter opened this school as a kindergartner in 2007. I’m so excited to work with our new principal and PTA board to create a memorable school year for ALL students at Deer Park. Please feel free to email me with any questions at jenlingo77@gmail.com.

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”  – Martin Luther King, Jr

VP of Programs –

My name is Caroline Perjessy and I am VP of Programs for Deer Park this year and am looking forward to contributing to the already wonderful programs we have, while adding some extra elements that make them even more accessible and inclusive. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), hold my doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision, and am invested in the social and emotional health of our children. One of the reasons I joined PTA was to help establish more programs that can meet the emotional needs of all kiddos and to provide support to parents, too. I have 2 kids at Deer Park; Alex, who is starting 3rd grade, and Benji, who will be going into Kindergarten. We are so thankful to be a part of the Deer Park community and I look forward to the upcoming year! Please contact me at cica12@msn.com.
