High School Student Participates in Ringing NYSE Closing Bell
On Thursday, May 2, 2013, some students from Deer Park High School were invited to Wall Street. Twenty-two students from the Health Education Action Team (H.E.A.T.) and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) clubs were invited to come and ring in Global Youth Traffic Safety Month from the Stock Exchange floor and to cheer on their colleague, Steven, who was one of five youth members chosen from throughout the country to participate with Allstate and National Organization of Youth Safety (NOYS) in ringing the closing bell. Club advisors Ms. Sherry Deacon and Ms. Janet Werner accompanied the students on the trip. All students were given medallions to commemorate their visit.
The district wishes all of our students success on their upcoming tests. The district’s position encourages universal participation in state tests. The DPUFSD has no authority to allow students to opt-out of state testing. Thank you
