Time is running out for Dallas ISD elementary school students to sign up for the 21-Day Challenge – participants must register by Oct. 1.

The annual contest, sponsored by Medical City Children’s Hospital, challenges students to make healthier snack choices for three weeks. Those healthy snacks should contain at least one fruit or vegetable, and recipes available on the website can provide inspiration and great choices.

Kid-friendly recipes are developed by culinary arts students in the Texas ProStart program, along with partner the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association.

Registering in the challenge qualifies the top participating schools for prizes and bragging rights (not to mention the encouragement to eat all those yummy snacks). Learn more and register at  www.kids-teaching-kids.com.


Dallas ISD Rising: J.N. Ervin Elementary students, staff talk school’s turnaround

While teaching math at Kennedy Curry Middle School, Annette Powers kept encountering students from J.N Ervin Elementary School unable to add, subtract or multiply.

When Ervin became a Dallas ISD ACE School, which incentivizes high-performing teachers and campus leaders to voluntarily work at low-performing campuses, Powers signed on to help transform the school.

“I wanted to change the school’s culture and change the feeder pattern so students would leave knowing how to do the basics of math,” she said.

Dallas ISD Rising: Thirteen schools grab spotlight for tremendous turnaround

Thanks to Powers and the other outstanding teachers and campus staff, Ervin Elementary is now a much difference school than it was just two years ago. The school is not only no longer on the Improvement Required list, it earned two academic distinctions.

For a first-hand look at how the school has changed, the Hub asked the school’s students, teachers, staff and volunteers.

Annette Powers, Math Teacher

“It’s all hands-on deck, and everybody empowers the kids—as well as we empower each other—to make sure the climate is what it needs to be at the school.”

Amazing, Fifth-Grader

“What I love about (this school) is that it’s a community where people can learn together.”

Daniel Crisler, After-School Program Coordinator

“Kids are happy to be at school, parents are starting to get more involved, and the community is really starting to come around to invest in these kids, which is really cool to see.”

Melanie Jenkins, Office Manager

“We have more parent engagement, more activities going on for our students.”

Derrick Wesley, Physical Education Teacher

“It seemed like in the past that students were okay with just getting by. With the staff we have now, we are not allowing them to just get by. We want them to thrive.”

Gregory Chapman, Community Liaison

“This school year things are fixing to just blow up because all of our new partnerships—the church and the community—coming back to J.N. Ervin makes a huge difference for the students.”

Toyota and TutorMate team up with J.N. Ervin Elementary School

James Wallace, Principal

“We are excited to build upon and exceed these gains, and I’m thankful to be a part of a wonderful staff and excellent school community.”


Dallas ISD grad’s AP exam success earns her Texas AP Scholar award

A Class of 2018 graduate is one of the top two Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars in the state.

Kimmy Chang, who gradated last May as the School of Science and Engineering’s (SEM) valedictorian, earned the State AP Scholar Award by scoring a 3 or higher on the greatest number of AP exams, and the highest average scores on the AP exams she took. She currently attends Stanford University. She is just one of this year’s top AP Scholars in Texas.

The list of AP tests Chang took is a bit staggering: AP Human Geography, AP Calculus AB, AP Computer Science A,  AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, AP Calculus BC, AP World History, AP Physics 1, AP Art History, AP Chemistry, AP Physics C: Mechanics, AP U.S. History, AP Latin, AP Stats, AP English Language and Composition, AP English Literature and Composition, AP Physics 2, AP Studio Art: 2-D Design, AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, AP Macroeconomics, AP U.S. Government and Politics, AP Comparative Government and Politics, and AP Psychology.

An emphasis on Advanced Placement tests at Dallas ISD’s School of Science and Engineering is seeing great success.

All SEM students are required to take AP Calculus. In 2011, 73 percent of SEM students passed the AP Calculus exam. In 2018, 100 percent passed the exam, with 75 percent (78 out of 106 students) earning the top score of 5. Nationally, 19 percent of students score a 5 on the AP Calculus exam.


Annual Districtwide College Fair draws more than 2,300 visitors




More than 2,300 students and their parents attended the 2018 Dallas ISD Districtwide College Fair on Sept. 19 to learn about opportunities available after high school graduation.

That attendance figure represents more than 1,800 Dallas ISD students, nearly 50 more who attend schools outside of Dallas ISD and the about 400 parents/guardians who also visited the fair.

When they arrived, they were greeted by dozens of representatives from colleges, universities, trade schools and the military who were eager to share information about their institutions.

Transportation was once again available to the fair from Dallas ISD schools. There were 830 students who rode 27 buses to the fair, with 123 bus chaperones riding along.

There were 45 event volunteers and representatives from supporting district departments including Student Engagement and Counseling Services, Custodial Services, Graphics, Communications Services, Health Services, Dallas ISD Police, Strategic Initiatives and External Relations and Transportation Services.


Campuses, departments prepare for racial equity grant requirements

Dallas ISD staff from various district departments and identified schools collaborated to complete individualized consultation sessions that align to five specific components of the Funds for Achievement and Racial Equity (FARE) Grant.

The purpose of the FARE Grant is to better support identified schools by providing additional funds to address academic and infrastructure needs in respect to these five components:

1) staffing

2) supplemental instructional programs

3) after-school enrichment programs

4) professional development

5) materials and resources

Departments participating were Teaching & Learning, School Leadership, Extended Learning Opportunities, Advanced Academic Services, Early Learning, Special Education, Student Engagement & Counseling Services and the Racial Equity Office.

Principals from the four participating high schools, nine middle schools and four elementary schools met with representatives from each of the featured departments to select appropriate resources, and update their Campus Improvement Plans with goals and instructional strategies to reflect the allocation of the FARE Grant.

Find information about the Racial Equity Office here.

Rangers tie it in 9th but fall to Halos in 11

If there is an early leader for a defining trait at the infancy of the Don Wakamatsu era, resiliency appears to have surged in front. The Rangers refused to go down without a fight Monday in Wakamatsu's fourth game as interim manager, eventually falling 5-4 to the Angels in the 11th inning on a game-ending home run from pinch-hitter Jose Briceno.


Calhoun works on honing all parts of his game

Just because the plate appearances are not coming with any consistency does not mean Willie Calhoun is content to wait for a chance to be a difference maker. The Rangers' No. 2 overall prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, was working on his outfield play with interim manager Don Wakamatsu on Monday afternoon, well aware that his all-hit, hot-prospect status is not enough to be an everyday player in the Major Leagues.


Gallardo seeks to get back on track vs. Angels

Right-hander Yovani Gallardo (8-6, 6.59 ERA) will take the mound Tuesday at Anaheim, having gone 1-5 over his last seven starts with a 7.39 ERA. He still has eight victories since June 23, tied for third most in the American League. The Angels will counter with right-hander Matt Shoemaker (2-2, 5.48) in the 9:07 p.m. CT start time.


Who is Rangers' all-time single-season ace?

We take a look at each franchise's One Game To Live pitcher, the one pitcher, during his one peak season, that you'd put on the mound with it all on the line. You just get to pick one pitcher, and one season, when he was at the height of his game. Who's your pick?


Rangers rally to win as crowd honors Beltre

Third baseman Adrian Beltre walked off the field at Globe Life Park -- possibly for the last time -- in the top of the sixth inning during the Rangers' victory over Mariners on Sunday afternoon. He was accorded a standing ovation.

The Single Guy Blog

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!


My Dream Girl’s Baby Daddy Revealed

Well after a month of stalking my dream girl’s facebook page I finally found out who her baby daddy is. To get you up to speed I was shocked a while back to find out my dream girl was pregnant. I had never even seen her post anything about a man in her life. Well after a long wait she finally tagged her baby daddy to a post about the baby. I of course had to click on his name and check him out. And of course he is a low ranking military guy. Now don’t get me wrong I respect our military. But in this area most of the military guys are not the most upstanding people. And this guy is no different. So prediction-in a year or two my dream girl will be a single mother,left by her baby daddy when he got transfered or cheated on her with some other flavor of the week. But hey that is the life of a single guy-watching the hot girls fall for the cool guys that don’t deserve them and will treat them like crap.


My Dream Girl Is Pregnant

I was stalking around Facebook the other night checking out different posts by people like I do when I am bored. I checked out the Facebook page of a girl I have always had a huge crush on. This girl is beautiful. My total dream girl. What did I see? A post saying she was pregnant. That’s right my dream girl is pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong I always knew and know I would never have a chance with this girl. But what surprised me is that she never talks about a man in her life. She never posts pictures of her and a guy. And in fact I always thought maybe she was a lesbian because she always posted pictures of her and her hot model girlfriends. So now I am wondering who is the father? Is she dating someone and just not posting it? Even in the comments on her posts about being pregnant everyone just congratulates her. They never mention a boyfriend. Did she get pregnant by having a drunken one night stand? Did she intentionally get pregnant even though she says it was a surprise finding out she was pregnant? I mean no offense but there is so much birth control around if a girl gets pregnant she is either really stupid or wanted to get pregnant. And I have never considered this girl to be stupid. And who is the guy and what is he like? Is he some military guy from Fort Drum? Is he a professional? Is he unemployed? And does he ever know or care he is going to have a baby with this goddess? So many unanswered questions! One thing for sure,I will be checking out her page a lot to see if I can get an idea of exactly who this lucky guy is. This guy that knocked up my dream girl!


2017-And Still Single

Well we are almost a month into 2017-and I am still single. I wonder if Miss Right will find me this year. She seemed like she was in hiding during 2016. I mean I realize a lot of things happened in 2016 and she was probable busy. My Miss Right was probable busy helping Trump get elected President. Miss Right most likely was working with Obama to fight this Isis problem. Miss Right was obviously tied up helping my Cowboys win the NFC East. Oh and I am totally sure my Miss Right was completely taken up with helping to stop this whole Global Warming situation. But come on enough is enough….come on Miss Right…put all this dam community service aside and find me already!


Scam Girls

I never thought I would fall for it-but I did. You see there is a large group of girls on the internet that try to scam guys. They try to get them to send them money with the promises they want to meet but need some help to get by. I always have thought I was smart about all this. When I start talking to a girl off one of the dating websites I always try to look her up to make sure she is real. Well I started texting a girl yesterday off the Seekingarrangement website I have been on for about a year. We were texting back and forth. I searched her number on facebook and found her profile. Everything seemed legit. She said she wanted a long term arrangement with an older guy. We talked until about 5pm. Then she said she was trying to get money for her baby sitter and gas in the car and if I would send her some money. She even said she was sorry she was asking and would pay me back when she got paid next week. So I sent her $50 through Paypal. She said thank you so much. I said your welcome. And that was it. I texted her a few times after that and no response. I sent her a friend request on facebook and she blocked me. I had fallen for it. A scam girl had gotten me! The funny part about the whole thing is she could have gotten way more from me if she had kept talking to me and kept me going. I mean seriously $50 is not much,hell I spent more then that on lunch yesterday. But it’s just the point I got had. But you live and learn. But one thing is for sure-if your on seekingarrangement.com and start talking to a girl with lots of tatoos from Elmira Ny that calls herself Hannah,don’t send her money! You can thank me later for saving you money!

War Is Coming

People don’t want to admit it but war is coming between the U.S. and North Korea. North Korea is getting close to having a long range Nuclear missile that can hit the U.S. Americans don’t have the stomach for war but they need to get it and fast. If North Korea is allowed to get a missile that can strike our home land the party is over. The war is not going to be pretty. Lots of people in South Korea will die and so will American soldiers. But war is the only way to stop the mad man in the North. The left wing Liberals,liberal media and lots of gutless Americans think that we can talk to the leader of North Korea to get him to stop his Nuclear and missle programs. But that just won’t work. The more we talk the more he keeps building. He now has a million man army. Now to be honest-again something the Liberal media will not tell you-a lot of those million soldiers in the North are just teenagers. When the real fighting starts a lot of that million is going to run home to mommie. Right now the boys think they are cool in a uniform fighting for their country,but when the bullets and bombs fly the coolness will end and they will drop their arms and run. But there will still be soldiers that fight. The war will start shortly with an air campaign. Once our bombings of the North start then North Korea will start bombing South Korea. Then China will get in as well as Japan. If we are lucky the Russians might sit this one out. They have no real interest in that area of the world and they know they have their hands full in Syria. The war will be short but bloody. And President Trump will carry the blame,when he is actually doing what Presidents before him should have done. They should have stopped North Korea long ago before they were strong enough to give us a battle. But yes America war is coming-so get ready for it!


Why Obama Care Didn’t Work

President Trump is now in the process of repealing and replacing Obama Care. Everyone knows Obama Care didn’t work,even if they do not want to admit it. What a lot of people don’t know is why it didn’t work. It is very simple-Obama Care didn’t work because to many people were forced to buy insurance. The insurance industry is a business,and as a business they need to make a profit. Insurance companies rely on more people having insurance then actually use it. But when Obama Care mandated that everyone had to buy insurance people instantly wanted to use the insurance they purchased. Before,when people didn’t have insurance if they got a cold they stayed in bed,had chicken soup and recovered in a few days. Now with people being forced to buy insurance you can bet as soon as they even got the sniffles they went to the doctor. Before Obama Care people bought insurance for emergencies. The people who had insurance knew that some day they would need it for a major illness,but did not use it for the slightest ailment. The new health care plan that has been introduced does not have a mandate. If they keep that then this new health care law should do fine.


Hollywood Is Out Of Touch

After watching and listing to some of the actors and actresses in the past week talk about President Trump I now know that Hollywood is out of touch with main stream America. Hollywood just can not deal with the fact that their views do not reflect American values. What is worst is Hollywood can not deal with losing the election. Clinton did in deed win the popular vote. But what people don’t want to admit is Clinton won that popular vote by winning NYC and the LA/Hollywood areas. A lot of people live in these areas but their values are not the values of main stream America. Clinton did not win the working voters in Michigan or the farmers in the Midwest. She did not win the Southern voters in the bible belt. Clinton did not win the retired population in Florida. The protesters this past week are showing this generations true colors. A generation that has always gotten a trophy even if they finished last. A generation that has always gotten their own way-from Gay rights to Womens equal rights. A generation that has been able to work less because the government will give them a hand out to make ends meet. Well Hollywood and NYC better buckle their seat belts because the next four years and beyond are going to be a very bumpy ride. President Trump is in the White House and main stream America has taken back their country!


President Trump In 7 More Days

Well its been a long road but in just 7 more days we will have a new President. The last year and a half has been up and down. For a while I actually had my doubts if Trump could do it. But he did! And it is pretty obvious Clinton supporters thought for a long time that she would be the next President. Hotels in the Washinton DC area reported a huge number of cancellations because Clinton supporters had already made reservations planning to come to see their candidate take the Oath of Office. Now most hotels are booked back up again with Trump supporters. To get a room in the Washington DC area next week it will cost over $1,000 a night. Who knows what the next four years will be like. Maybe Trump will be a great President and maybe he won’t. I am certain of one thing however,the liberal media is going crazy trying to figure out what happened. They still will not admit that they were out of touch with main stream America. The liberal media thought what they believed was what America believed. Trump hit a nerve with Americans. When I say Americans I am not talking about people in NYC or LA. Those people do not reflect true Americans. True Americans think the government has gotten out of control,that there is to much interference in our lives and special interest groups like the Gaye and Lesbian groups have gotten way to much attention over the past 8 years. America took their country back and next week their leader will take control of a country wanting and needing a change. God Bless President Trump and God Bless the USA!
