These Three Upcoming
Events Calendar-Worthy

Please get out your calendar, smart phone or whatever you use to flag key dates for you and your family. Over the next month or so, Mesquite ISD is hosting several events — or in one case getting a program started — that may be of value to you and your neighbors.

Have you driven by our new Technology Excellence Center, formerly the Armory Building next to Hanby Stadium, and wondered what it looks like inside? Then please join us between 4 and 6 p.m. on Monday, September 30, for our Community Open House. Tours and demonstrations will take place, and refreshments will be served.

Our next Parent University, a district-sponsored workshop geared to help our parents and guardians bring out the best in students, is set for Tuesday, October 29. With the theme of Cyber Safety, this event will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at our Professional Development Center, 2600 Motley. Learn how to protect your child through the safe use of the Internet and other mobile devices. Childcare will be provided.

And last but not least, our A.L.I.V.E. Program for parents, guardians and community patrons kicks off another annual session in October. Back by popular demand, this class continues through May through monthly meetings. It provides a thorough look inside what it takes for us to educate nearly 40,000 people a day. Not only do A.L.I.V.E. participants get one-on-one time with our district leaders, they also get to experience some things – like cafeteria food – just like a student. Perhaps you’ll want to become one of our Board members some day like one of our A.L.I.V.E. graduates successfully did.

I urge you to make a special effort to attend at least one of the three events or programs. We need your participation and connection to our district to improve even further as a school community.
