Did you know that William B. Travis has a community partner school?
Last year, the Travis PTA and North Dallas High School started working together to build a relationship between our neighborhood schools. We had two very successful food and clothing drives; however, due to covid, our interactions were limited.
This year we are continuing to plan activities and events to promote a better sense of community, mutual support and interconnections between North Dallas High School and Travis TAG. Some ideas for collaboration include gatherings at Cole Park, Band Collaborations, and Open Mic at Uptown to name a few.
We welcome your suggestions and please stay tuned as we plan (and re-plan) fun events and activities adhering to DISD and Dallas County’s Covid status.
Currently, students and families in our neighborhood are experiencing housing and food insecurity; some are recent hurricane evacuees and some continue to deal with the economic devastation from Covid. We are inviting you to support NDHS and consider gifting one or more of the listed items below.
