    Key Club Students “Rock the House” at District Convention!

    DPHS Key Club recently attend the District Convention in Seattle.
    Out of ALL Key Clubs in the states of Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and the Idaho Panhandle and British Colombia, Deer Park Key Club was awarded the Major Emphasis Award for “The Fight Against Childhood Cancer” project that lasted from September through January.  It included all the work dedicated to raising awareness and donations to the American Cancer Society and the American Childhood Cancer Organization Inland Northwest.

    The second award was for the Seventh Grade Service Project organized with Deer Park Kiwanis and Deer Park Middle School.  Key Clubs are divided into four groups, and these groups are determined by the club’s membership.  Deer Park High School, because of our large membership, competes with school much larger than ours.  In the “Gold” group, one award is given, and Deer Park Key Club was the winner.
    It is great to go out on top!  Way to Go!
