A Successful Start to the School Year

Deer Park welcomed the district’s incoming kindergarten students in style with schoolwide play dates. John Quincy Adams and May Moore Elementary Schools opened their doors prior to the first day of school for an afternoon of fun and introductions. Students and their parents arrived at their respective schools and had the opportunity to meet their principals, teachers and classmates. The playground served as the social center where students played together and enjoyed a snack provided by the schools’ PTAs.  As the play date came to a close, students exited through the gates to board a bright yellow school bus, where they became familiar with proper bus etiquette and practiced a safe riding experience.
