  • District holds groundbreaking ceremony for new Carpenter Elementary building

    Posted by Matthew Lucas on 11/8/2018



    Earlier today, the District held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new W.A. Carpenter Elementary School.  In addition to members of the School Board and administration, the event included Principal Suzanne Holcomb and several members of her team, former Carpenter principals Belinda Box and Bobby Garcia, and representatives from cre8 Architects, construction contractor Durotech, the Deer Park Education Foundation Board and the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce.  Special guests included Bill Carpenter and Jerry Carpenter, for whose father the school was named.  W.A. Carpenter was a School Board member for almost 30 years and also served as mayor of Deer Park.


    During his opening comments, Superintendent Victor White noted that he met his wife in a third grade classroom in the current Carpenter building and that each of his three children had also attended school at Carpenter.  But White also echoed the new Carpenter’s motto, “Building a Strong Foundation for Our Students and a Future They Have Yet to Imagine,” as he explained his hope for the new school.


    “This groundbreaking ceremony is an indication that those same kinds of memories that I have and that I know a number of you have will continue to be made in the lives of the students here in this new facility,” he said. 


    Site preparation has already begun for the new Carpenter Elementary, which will be located behind the current school.  The goal is for students and staff to move into the new facility during the spring 2020 semester.  The project is funded by the District’s successful 2017 School Bond Election, which was overwhelmingly approved by voters.

  • October 2018 Guests of the Board of Trustees

    Posted by Matthew Lucas on 11/2/2018

    During the October meeting of the Board of Trustees, the District hosted a number of student special guests.


    The District recognized students from the Deer Park High School FFA program who participated and placed at auction in the 2018 Pasadena Livestock Show and Rodeo.


    DPHS students earned four Grand Champion awards, Reserve Champion in eight categories of competition, two Grand Showmanship awards, and one Reserve Showmanship award.  The live auction total for FFA students exhibiting livestock and floral projects for all school districts was $372,250. The overall Deer Park total was $179,500, which was almost half of the total amount received by the 11 participating schools.

    The Board also recognized Deer Park High School art student Dalton Burke, for whom the last few months have been filled with creative expression and activity.  After his work was named Best of Show in the 2018 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Art Contest, Dalton was awarded a scholarship to the Western Art Academy at Schreiner University in Kerrville for a month-long study this summer.  He was one of 48 participants chosen from 150 applications.  The academy is a rigorous four-week program that teaches students the process of creating Western Art through painting and clay sculpting.


    That led to him receiving a scholarship to participate in the exclusive Susan Kathleen Black Foundation’s 17th Annual Workshop for high school artists in Dubois, WY.  The workshop gave Dalton and his peers the chance to work alongside dozens of professional artists for six days. Dalton was among the 150 student artists attending from the United States and overseas.  At the Board Meeting, he was joined by his art teacher, Kate Harrell, and District Art Coordinator Amanda Baker.
