Trustee Joyce Foreman represents District 6, which includes Southwest Dallas. Trustee Foreman says teachers and community coming together is a recipe for helping students soar. Below is an excerpt from her monthly column which appears in the North Dallas Gazette in which she shares success in her district schools.
Let’s keep this momentum rolling!
As with any new beginning, the 2017-2018 school year offered a chance to reset and renew as we continue our efforts to do what’s best for children.
This year is particularly exciting for me because of all the great accomplishments District 6 experienced last year. As a matter of fact, every school in District 6 met the state performance standards as measured by the Texas Education Agency. This is quite a feat, and it is a powerful show of what can be accomplished when schools and community dig deep and stand together to bring opportunities to students to help them succeed.
This also demonstrates the caliber of teachers and principals we have in District 6. Their hard work, persistence and belief in our children is a formula for success. I am grateful to each of them.
I am also honored to serve the great people of District 6, and I encourage each of you to join me as we advocate for children. What we accomplish today could make a huge difference in the life of our students. Please don’t think that you have nothing to give. Your time, energy, or expertise can carry more weight than you might ever imagine.
Thank you for your support, and let’s keep the momentum rolling and make it the best school year ever!
