Parent Center Goes to SMU
A few parents from Lamar Middle School along with Mrs. Taylor, Lamar’s parent liaison, took a road trip via (TRE) to Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas. After catching two trains and one bus they finally made it to their destination. The parents attending the field trip received a wealth of information relating to their student's academic journey within the district. Additionally, they were able to see the limitless opportunities and avenues available that the district provides to help all Irving students become successful socially, academically, and, emotionally. SMU and Irving ISD are working together to create a global gateway with limitless opportunities that shape and position students for success no matter where they go or what they pursue! It is Mrs. Taylor's desire that an inviting climate and culture is created that includes all stakeholders: students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the entire community, working together to create successful students!
