But somewhere around the ages of 2-4, you notice every outing seems to become more expensive too! Restaurant bills double because children are now […]

“It’s exciting to have established a new partnership with JCPenney and Dallas ISD,” said Tom Hayden of Dallas ISD’s Volunteer and Partnership Services. “In today’s competitive world of business where profit margins are razor thin, it’s refreshing to have a company that puts the success of the students, families and staff of Dallas ISD at the forefront of their community involvement.”


Generación del 2017 recibe más de $211 millones en becas universitarias

La generación de 2017 de Dallas ISD ha reporta haber recibido cerca de 5,730 ofertas de becas o subvenciones institucionales que suman un total de $211 millones.

Alrededor de 4,000 estudiantes informaron haber solicitado una beca o subvención institucional.

El superintendente Michael Hinojosa dijo que los estudiantes y sus familias deben estar orgullosos.

“Las becas representan los primeros frutos de las innumerables horas invertidas en busca de la excelencia académica, inversión que continuará recompensandoles en el futuro”, dijo Hinojosa.

Son los mismos graduados quienes informan a los tutores o consejeros universitarios de sus preparatorias sobre el número de solicitudes de becas o subvenciones que completan.

Además, el índice de graduados del distrito que completó la solicitud gratuita para ayuda financiera del gobierno federal, conocida como FAFSA, que es el primer paso a la mayoría de las ayudas financieras para los estudios universitarios, ha sobrepasado el del año pasado.

Chicken and waffles among newest menu options in Dallas ISD

Demeatria LaForte is getting a new kitchen, but it won’t be in her home.

 LaForte decided to swap a restaurant kitchen for a school cafeteria in the Dallas Independent School District. But first, she’s getting a sneak peak of the new recipes that will be part of the school meals menu for the 2017-2018 school year.

“I am super excited about the new recipes in the school meals menu,” said LaForte. “The new recipes will offer more variety to students, which will encourage them to participate in the school meals program.”

Chicken & Waffles, Apple Cinnamon Texas Toast, Chipotle Fish Tacos, Curry Roasted Cauliflower, Sassy Italian Corn, and a Southwest Black Bean Bake are some of the new meal options that Dallas ISD students will have when they return to school.

Several of the items on the menu LaForte and her staff will soon prepare, are chef-inspired recipes, created by Dallas ISD’s Food and Child Nutrition Services chefs and staff, while some were created by Dallas ISD culinary students during theCooking Up Change competition this spring.

“Engaging students in the selection of the menu items gives us with the opportunity to hear their voices,” said Michael Rosenberger, Executive Director of Food and Child Nutrition Services. “Our mission is to provide nutrition that fuels successful learning, and the best way to do that is to create a menu that students are really excited about.”

This experience will give LaForte the opportunity to learn how one meal impacts a child’s success in the classroom. In Dallas ISD, all students are able to receive breakfast and lunch at no-cost daily. In schools with after-school enrichment activities, an after-school meal is provided to all students at no-cost as well. Snacks and other items not included in the daily menu options may be purchased.

For now, LaForte is eager to set foot in her new industrial-sized kitchen complete with all of the ingredients to create a recipe for student success.

Parents can visit http://dallasisd.nutrislice.com/ or downloading it as a mobile application to access their child’s school menu, which includes nutritional and allergen information, as well as provide feedback on the meals.


‘Waffles y Pollo’ es una de las nuevas recetas en el menú escolar del Dallas ISD

‘Waffles y Pollo’, o mejor conocidos en inglés como “Chicken and Waffles”, es una de las nuevas recetas del menú escolar del Distrito Escolar Independiente de Dallas, para el año 2017-2018.

Varios de los nuevos platillos en el menú fueron creados por empleados del departamento Food and Child Nutrition Services del distrito y otros por estudiantes de clases culinarias.

Todos los estudiantes del Dallas ISD reciben desayuno y comida a diario sin costo alguno. En escuelas con programas de enriquecimiento después de clases, también se da un alimento por la tarde a los estudiantes sin costo alguno. Refrigerios y otros artículos no incluidos en el menú diario, pueden ser comprados.

Los padres pueden visitar http://dallasisd.nutrislice.com o descargar la aplicación móvil para tener acceso al menú, el cual incluye información de nutrición y de alérgenos. Además los padres pueden dar su opinión sobre los alimentos por medio de esta aplicación o página de Internet.


Class of 2017 reports receiving more than $211 million in college scholarships

The Dallas ISD Class of 2017 has reported receiving nearly 5,730 scholarship or institutional grant offers totaling more than $211 million.

Almost 4,000 students in the Class of 2017 reported applying for a scholarship or institutional grant.

Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said the scholarship recipients and their families should be proud.

“These scholarships are just the first dividends from the countless hours invested in pursuit of academic excellence, an investment that will continue to pay off far into the future,” Hinojosa said.

The scholarship data is self-reported by seniors to their high school counselor or college access advisor.

Meanwhile, the district’s completion rate for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA), which is the gateway to most types of financial aid for college, has already surpassed that of last year. As of June 28, approximately 59 percent of the Class of 2017 graduates had completed the FASFA, which is three percentage points higher than the completion rate as of August 9, 2016, for the Class of 2016 graduates.

Yu has career-worst outing before Deadline

Yu Darvish has been at the center of trade rumors for a while now, but he was able to put them out of his mind before Wednesday's 22-10 loss to the Marlins at Globe Life Park.


Seise hits first professional homer

Jose Siri extended his hitting streak to 31 games, the longest in the Minor Leagues this season, on Wednesday, and he did so in style, hitting a pair of home runs and going 3-for-4 with four RBIs for Class A Dayton.


Beltre edges closer to 3,000, but Yu rocked

On a night where Adrian Beltre was chasing history, the Marlins carved out a bit of history for themselves. Miami unloaded on Rangers starter Yu Darvish early, and the Marlins cruised to a record-setting 22-10 victory on Wednesday night at Globe Life Park for their fourth win in their last six games.


Gomez drives in 2 after initially getting day off

Rangers outfielder Carlos Gomez has been playing with some soreness in his left side, which is why he was given a day off on Wednesday.

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!


Women Are All About Looks-And I Can Prove It

I post personal ads on craigslist always hoping my future wife will finally read one of them. I never get any responses. So I decided to do a test. I posted 2 ads. One ad was basically true-it told my age,looks,that I was a computer geek and a nice guy that knew how to treat a woman. The title said “I’m the nice guy you have been looking for”. The second ad was a lie-I said I was buff with tattoos,looking for girls that could keep up with me and was a total bad boy. I even posted a fake photo of a guy with tats naked in front of the mirror. The title of the ad said “I’m The Bad Boy With Tats Your Parents Warned You About”. I got one response to the ad saying I was a nice guy-and the girl that responded was not even really serious about a relationship. The second ad got so many responses I could not tell you how many it has gotten as of right now. The last count was about 70 responses. I have even gone so far as to send some of the girls responding my number so I could text them and I could test them even more. One girl I have been texting this morning I told her everything bad. That I was on leave from the military for a while because I came in drunk. That my buddies call me yo yo because my rank goes up and down so much. I even told her I am horney and looking to hook up with a girl today-even though she was not free to meet today. Do you know what she said? “Well good luck I don’t want to get in your way,I will have you when I am free next week”. I mean really? If it was reversed a guy would have said so long lol And guys will respond to ads even placed by average girls. Guys don’t look just for the hot girls. But the girls they are all about the looks and attitude. The more buff you are and the worst attitude the more they want you. I guess that’s why my future wife hasn’t emailed me yet. The story of a single guy’s life.

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!


Welcome To The Trump Revolution

History was made yesterday. Donald J. Trump stuck his middle finger in the air and gave the country and the world the biggest F…You in history. Hillary Clinton thought she was meant to be President. But she didn’t think she was meant to be President because the people neeeded her. She thought she was owed the White House. All of the polls said Clinton would run away with the election. But the people stood up and said enough is enough. It was time to take the country back from the special interest groups and the minorities that have had far to much power in our government in the past couple decades. Historians like to talk about the Reagan Revolution of the 1980s. Welcome to the Trump Revolution. A time when the hard working middle class will have the power. The time when the United States will come first. And a time when we can once again say Merry Christmas without being yelled at for not being politically correct. Tighten your seat belts left wing liberals because the next four years are going to be amazing!
