We are so excited that Reilly Elementary has been selected to be part of the 2020 Dallas ISD bond, and as such will be completely replaced with a new school on the same site. Therefore, our current needs are focused on advancing student learning in lieu of updating school infrastructure.
Our goal is to ensure that any donation made today will impact students even after the new school is constructed.
The Reilly PTA is continuing our focus on Field Trip options, with the goal that EVERY GRADE LEVEL MAY PARTICIPATE IN AT LEAST (1) FIELD TRIP PER SEMESTER. Last year (2022-2023) the Reilly PTA was able to use funds raised from NTX Giving day to send Pre-k, Kinder, 1st, and 4th grades to the Fair Park Aquarium. Students had a blast checking out aquatic animals, touching sting rays, and eating lunch on Fair Park Grounds. The Reilly PTA also brought the Perot Museum to campus after hours for a STEM night, and was able to provide free dinner for families who attended.
This year, we have big plans to have more on site Field Trip options and family outreach after hours. The Reilly PTA would also love to contribute to any specific learning tool purchases in preparation for and for use after the Field Trip, so that students can have a wholistic and lasting experience.
Although some organizations do not charge a fee, many do. Funds provided for NTX Giving Day can help cover the cost for these fees, as well as any necessary travel costs, and lunch accommodations.
