Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Deer Park District Curriculum
Deer Park High’s science department’s main goal is to provide students with inquiry-based, hands-on learning experiences that help them better understand the world around them. Students work with different compounds, in particular, they examine the ability of carbon to make rings and form chains. High school students also study thermodynamics. Students identify what thermal energy is, and explain how it consists of ordered and unordered motion of colliding particles. Besides the typical science classes, the high school offers anatomy, living environment, forensic science, astronomy, oceanography, and marine biology.
The goal of the social studies department is to cultivate students who are contributing citizens to a global society. Children look at the relationship of communities with bodies of water, mountains, and other geographic features. Government is also a component of the curriculum. Students learn about the procedures followed to make and enact laws, and explain how laws are needed to maintain order and keep the peace. This is done by engaging students in historical and social inquiry as they analyze information as well as understand multiple perspectives.

Chalk Talk: Personalizing Your Education
Students have identical lockers, sit in identical desks, read identical textbooks, and may even wear similar uniforms, but there are ways for children to personalize their educational materials. Students can put many items in their locker to make it their own. They can put photos of their friends, family, pets, favorite singers or actors, and more. They may hang personal artwork and drawings or inspirational quotes. They may use letter magnets to spell out different words. There is a wide range of folders available, and children can personalize them even further by adding stickers, drawings, words, magazine clippings, etc. Students can also select from different styles and patterns of lunch boxes and backpacks and include buttons or pins on them. Of course, parents and teachers should always make sure students' personalizations are school-appropriate and that they are not damaging any school property or writing in their textbooks.
