This incredible school, established in 1912, had been in that building since 1942 and has been a beloved institution of the neighborhood. The amazing staff, the exemplary academics, and the close-knit family atmosphere of the school have made it a school of choice for families across the Dallas area.

As a PTA, we feel fortunate that the district has found a way for the school body to move intact to another building and that all of the classes and staff will be able to stay together, but that transition process and the state of the school building means that the school will be starting over essentially from scratch. Please help us to provide the funds for this transition process - as of now, we are still assessing the needs of the teachers, administration, and students, and your donations will help to provide supplies for the classrooms and students, curriculum, books, anything that we are able to provide to outfit the new building and smooth this transition. 

Thank you so much for your generosity.

Como parte del PTA, nos sentimos afortunados que el distrito encontro una manera para mover al cuerpo escolor intacto a otro edificio y que todas las clases y facultad podran permanecer juntos. Pero ese proceso de transiciòn y el estado en el quedo nuestra escuela significa que tenderemos que empezar de zero. Porfavor ayudenos a prover los recursos para este proceso de transiciòn- ahora todavia estamos determinando las necesidades de nuestros maestros, administracion, y estudiantes. Y sus donaciones ayudaran a prover los utiles necesarios para los salones y estudiantes, curriculo, libros, y cualquier cosa que seamos capaz de propocionar para equipar el nuevo edifico y hacer una transiciòn mas suave. Muchisimas gracias por su generosidad!
