Jerry Junkins

On Thursday, December 10, 2015, Jerry Junkins hosted its 2nd annual Holidays Around The World Multicultural Night. This year we had over 350 families attend the event. We always hope to showcase the diversity of our student population on this special night. Our families come together and share their cultures with one another. We began the evening with a family potluck, and encouraged families to bring dishes they would normally share at home. Santa came by to visit with all the children. We’d like to offer a special thanks to Costco who donated 250 backpacks. Every child received a free backpack after their visit with Santa. We also had a station set up for the children to create Christmas ornaments and write letters to Santa. Then it was off to the auditorium, for several student performances that highlighted Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa. Thanks to our donors, we had over 30 raffle prizes given away that included three tablets and one brand new bike. We finished the evening with a special video highlighting our student cultures. This event definitely supports our mission of creating global citizens by exposing them to the diversity within our own campus!

Behringer-Harvard and Junkins team up

To support our mission of providing a supportive culture for the twenty-first century learner to reach their academic destination and become productive citizens of the world, Jerry Junkins Elementary has partnered with Behringer-Harvard in launching a Coding Club for the 4th and 5th grade students. The Behringer-Harvard IT staff members meet every week with our students teach them how to code. In the spring semester, students will be applying their programming/coding skills to robots. We are so fortunate to have Behringer’s support in making our vision a reality. Our students are on their way to being equipped with the skills necessary to contribute to our evolving tech-driven society.

Dallas Innovates, a content hub for innovation, was created through the partnership of the Dallas Regional Chamber and D magazine – the platform aims to communicate the innovation occurring in the various sectors of the city and launched publicly yesterday. Exciting that they chose to profile IDEA as their key feature story in the “Education” space.

December 15th, there was a screening of the documentary “Most Likely to Succeed,” that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and has since been showed at various film festivals around the country. IDEA was invited to participate in the panel discussion after the screening – One of our students, Sam Nix, participated in the panel discussion and impressed the audience away with his insightful and articulate comments; I’m so proud of him!
