It has been a super busy time at Herbert Marcus Elementary. Below are just a few of the activities that have happened in the past few weeks. We had Dallas Reads!, Family Story Time, and even a visit from meteorologist Greg Fields from WFAA. Check out our events below!

Dallas Reads!

This year on 11-12-13, we participated in Dallas Reads! This year’s event was FREADOM and the theme was Leadership and Service in honor of all those who serve. We had several volunteers come read to our students and every class spent time reading and having a fun time.
