Save the Date: Launch 2021 | Friday, July 30

Two years ago, and for two-years running, Deer Park Schools and our community organization OneDeerPark hosted a summer festival called Launch, that provided our students with back-to-school supplies, haircuts, food, games and prizes all at no charge to the families. Everything was completely FREE! While COVID obviously put a halt on our momentum last year, we are back up and running this year and looking to make it our best event yet!

Thanks to local sponsors and OneDeerPark, this festival-like event will feature carnival games, prizes, popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy, a dunk tank and so, so much more!

Come out, grab a burger or hot dog, play a game or two, and get a fresh cut to get ready for the start of the 2021-22 school year! It's sure to be a great event for the entire Deer Park community!

Updated Dates: Safe, Seen, and Heard Presentation

Anyone else feel like they are in survival mode these days? Do you ever have full, happy days where you forget the chaos of the outside (or inside) world?

Either way, we are all in the thick of it, and one thing that makes it tougher is trying to do it all alone. So, let’s not try to do it alone. In this two-session series we will be inviting families to come together in a supportive learning environment in order to engage with one another with practices that help us not just survive in trying times, but thrive. 

We all have the capacity to cultivate safer relationships with ourselves and others. The key is practice. And practicing within the context of community makes it that much sweeter.

What's New at Amity Elementary?

Amity Summer Academy Opens

It seemed to be the shortest summer on record here at Amity Elementary! We dismissed kids on the last day of school, took a week to get organized, and then reopened our doors to students attending the Amity Summer Academy! We always get such great joy in seeing the excitement and smiles our students have when coming into the building! They are bringing it daily to our Academy sessions, even though it is the summer!

In our picture below, kindergarten students are reviewing letter recognition and letter sounds with Mrs. Hill during their Amity Academy session.
