Deer Park PTA Mission & Purpose

Welcome and Thank You for Visiting the Deer Park PTA Website!

The Deer Park Elementary School PTA was founded in April 2005, before construction on the school had even begun. We are excited to be in our 14th year of providing our families enriching activities and exciting events throughout the year. We are proud to be working alongside Mrs. Lefler and Mr. Findley to help create a culture of kindness and inclusiveness at Deer Park. Please take a minute to browse our website and see what the PTA has to offer Deer Park. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kelleigh Ambs, PTA President at president@deerparkpta.org
