Deer Park High School hosted its annual Wrapping and Rapping Party to culminate the district’s Adopt-A-Cherub project. Organized by the school’s SADD Club, and in partnership with the district social workers, students adopted 37 “cherubs” and collected more than 100 gifts.  

Needy families throughout the community were identified and their age, gender and interests provided for students to purchase appropriate gifts. Students reached out to their peers and were able to enlist the help of more than 100 student volunteers to purchase wrapping materials and wrap the gifts.

Participating club members included the student council, Gay-Straight Alliance, ICC, Cornerstone Club, Art Club, Freshman & Senior Class, Leaders Club, Women’s Choir, HEAT Club and Varsity Leaders Club, as well as individual students.
