National Honor Society Ferns

  • The NHS is selling ferns for graduation. These ferns are ordered from a local florist and will be delivered for graduation. With a fern purchase, there will also be a dedication included in the graduation program for your student. Please contact or any of our current NHS members to help assist with the ordering process. 
  • Please use this link to order ferns by May 12th:
  • The cost of a fern is $40.

Senior slideshow and Pictures

  • Senior Pictures - If you want your portrait to be included in the senior section of the yearbook or the class pictures that hang in the hall, you must be photographed by Prestige Portraits by May 31 - no exceptions. The sooner the better. 
  • You must contact Prestige and let them know you are from Deer Park.  They will give you several options of portrait packages to purchase.  The cheapest option is the one that gets you in the yearbook and in the class picture.  You may do larger packages if you want to, but that is up to you. 
  • In the past, Prestige has scheduled a “Last Chance” day when they come to the school to take photos of seniors who have not scheduled their pictures on their own.  Due to Covid restrictions, we do not know if they will be able to do that this year, so to ensure your spot in the yearbook and in the class pictures, schedule an appointment with Prestige ASAP.  Their contact information is below:
