We're Getting Closer!

Soon and very soon, school will actually begin for the 2020-2021 school year in Dallas ISD! It's been a long time coming, and we're excited to connect with our scholars once again! Ms. Jordan sent a message asking students to check their schedule. If there are any concerns, please contact her immediately through any of the modes of communication available--phone, email, Remind...

Last week we held our first virtual Phoenix Camp. At the end of my presentation, I asked students to answer the question posed by the late poet, Mary Oliver in her poem, "The Summer Day" : "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Our freshmen and new students were to respond to that question using Flip grid. The pictures you see are screen shots of some of our students. Thank you so much for participating! It has been inspiring listening to the hopes and dreams of our scholars. We will do all that we can to push them even further to impact their communities and this world.

Later this week, I will send our virtual student calendar as well as other pertinent information to ensure a smooth entry into an experience of teaching and learning at Rosie Sorrells School of Education and Social Services for 2020-2021.

Have a great week and be safe,
