Dr. Barbara Jordan Elementary School
Annual Community Walk & Health Fair
Saturday, November 4, 2017
Annually, Dr. Barbara Jordan Elementary School teachers, teacher assistants, parents, community leaders and representatives from the Dallas Police Department visit over 120 student homes, delivering smiles, hugs, and goody bags to nearby residents. After the community walk, parents and students are invited to the school for the health fair, health screenings and a day of fun and games.
The Annual Dr. Barbara Jordan Community Walk is the schools opportunity to engage parents, students and the community by going outside of our learning walls. Studies show that students succeed in the classroom when parents team up with teachers to make education a family commitment. Jordan teacher, Stephanie Sosa, said, “I love seeing the students faces light up when we visit their homes, and it gives me an opportunity to visit with students from previous years.” Principal, Lucy Hopkins looks forward to the community walk every year, encouraging and motivating parents to become active participants in their child’s educational success.
