Deer Park’s summer Unplugged program in August brought fun and socialization to Deer Park High School and Robert Frost Middle School students, providing them with a chance to reconnect and learn during a variety of enriching class sessions covering topics from arts and crafts to outdoor sports tournaments.

The high school’s classes included anime and cartoon character design, batik pillow making, digital portfolios, Mexican culture, Photoshop and digital art, power walking, small-sided soccer, touch rugby, woodburning, woodworking, and yoga.

Frost’s sessions included 3D printing, acting and singing for musical theater, bead art, button making, cheerleading, coding, darts, journaling, Lego, origami, sailing, sand art, soccer, string art, table tennis, woodworking and yoga.

“Unplugged is a great way for our students to form meaningful relationships with our staff while taking classes that fit their various interests and abilities,” Deer Park High School Associate Principal Garret Noblett said.

“It was so nice to meet the incoming ninth graders who participated in the program, and to see them collaborate with our current students as they engaged in this year’s Unplugged activities,” Deer Park High School Associate Principal Dina Pannone said.

“The Unplugged Program was once again a huge success, and we all look forward to welcoming these amazing students in the fall of 2022,” Robert Frost Associate Principal Kevin Quirk said.
