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!
