Ballet Recital

Great Job! Kashia on your ballet recital. Kashia Jones is a very talented girl, she has participated in a lot of extracurricular activities this school year. She gives 100% in everything that she does. I think that she is an exceptional individual. If you ever see her in passing just stop and visit with her so you too can experience what I do everyday when I talk with her. (A diamond in the Rough)

Prayer Breakfast

The prayer breakfast was great. And it was an honor to be there and to here all the mayoral candidate's speak. They did an awesome job and it was really a privilege to be there. I want to thank CDM for standing up and doing more than just talk about the issues of so many people.

2007 CDM Prayer Breakfast

This morning's prayer breakfast was a wonderful event. The venue was beautiful, the crowd was great, and the CDM staff coordinated quite a successful morning.

Special kudos go to Ms. Wyshina Harris for courageously and eloquently representing an often-overlooked, yet incredibly important group within our community! Wyshina, you did a fabulous job and we are so proud of you!

I was glad to hear from all of the mayoral candidates present.

I hope that they have heard the voices of South Dallas -- and ALL of Dallas -- regarding our concern for the important issues which were presented this morning.

Thanks to all of those who helped to bring these issues to the forefront of the mayoral race.

Remember, early voting begins this Monday, April 30th, and Election Day is May 12th -- let's all get out there and vote for the candidate who will best lead our city into a brighter future!

  • I would like to shine on the kids for book cooks they have improved since we had our class meeting and I am so very proud of them.
  • I would also like to shine on the kids in science they are learning and being active in every activity that we do.
  • Over all I am proud of the kids in every way. So nice to be around such bright kids.

Thanks for the great suggestions some of you offered. Thanks for being great parents!

Out door activities

As the months pass on its a joy to come and see the kids have so much fun while playing outside they play football, monkey in the middle, and they seem to enjoy being around each other. And I figure that makes them very happy.
