Welcome to the 2019-2020 School year!
My name is Jennifer Lingo, your PTA president this school year. I want to welcome you all, new and returning Rangers, to a wonderful new school year. I first off want to say how excited I am to work with Mrs. Lefler, our new Principal. She has the heart of a Deer Park Ranger, and I can’t wait to see what all she can accomplish at our school. Secondly, I would like to congratulate our school in achieving another A rating! Deer Park has kept an A rating since it opened in 2006, showing our teachers and staff are truly committed to giving our students a top-notch education.
As we kick off this school year, I hope you look forward to some of our traditional events, such as Ranger Round Up, the Deer Park Skate Nights, and Movie Night under Stars. I hope you also look forward to revamped events, such as Boys Night Out and the Sweetheart dance, replacing the mom/son and dad/daughter events as more inclusive events focusing on our students and their ever-changing family dynamics. In addition to our events, we are making a few smaller changes in the PTA. This year, we have lowered the price of PTA memberships, eliminated sno-cones, and opened up dress down days to ALL our students. We hope these changes make our PTA feel more inclusive and welcoming to ALL of our students.
On behalf of the entire PTA board, I wish you ALL the best this school year. If you have questions, comments, concerns, or ideas, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
