Hello, ESSM Parents and Scholars!


We now know that we will begin our year of learning and engagement virtually! The announcement from Superintendent Hinojosa was made publicly on last Thursday. That being said, if any ESSM student needs a Chrome Book, please call the school at 972.925.5940 to speak with our office manager, Ms. Contreras. You may also email her at PContreras@dallasisd.org.


Last week our cluster teachers met with our seniors through a Zoom Meeting. We will be following up with those seniors who were missing in action. On Tuesday, August 25th we are excited to meet with the Class of 2024, our Freshmen! If your freshman has not registered for this time of connection, please do! We want to meet you up close and personal!


Our teachers will officially begin on Thursday, August 27, 2020 although it will be virtual. Many have begun to come to the campus to organize and gather materials in preparation for the delivery of effective teaching and impactful learning.


Our counselor and cluster teachers are working collaboratively to make sure our students' schedules are accurate and ready to go on day one!


Finally, we need at least 20 students, parents, and teachers to get our PTA up and running. Thank you to those who have signed up. If you haven't, today is great day to join us. We need you! Please sign the google form below. Thank you for your patience and choosing Rosie Sorrells School of Education and Social Services. We are truly grateful.


Thank you and Be safe,

Valarie Kendrick

Principal
