Dallas ISD is bringing the fun—and information about its neighborhood schools—to the community as part of its Rock the Block celebrations.
District representatives are holding block parties at seven apartment complexes in the Kimball and Carter high school feeder patterns in May and June. At the May 31 kickoff at the Magnolia Creek Apartment Complex, families shot basketballs with Dallas ISD police officers, enrolled their children in Dallas ISD schools, and showed off a few dance moves.
“We are reintroducing and reengaging our neighborhoods with our neighborhood school,” said Jacqueline Bell, school choice communications coordinator for Dallas ISD
Vanetta, a parent at the Magnolia Creek Apartment Complex, said she was thankful for the event.
“This means you care about the kids, and their education,” she said.
