What's Happening at DATA

Today is the big day for our students and staff at DATA - the STEAM Carnival. We are so excited and proud to host this NEISD event on the campus here at Roosevelt. This is where we can truly see our students "Creating the Future Through Design" by integrating science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Thank you all (in advance) for supporting your students by coming out tonight to witness their creativity, hard work, and collaboration first-hand.

Have a great weekend!

Until next time,

Mrs. Szabo
