Summer has officially begun for the 4,200 K-8 students currently enrolled in Trinity Basin Preparatory’s seven Dallas, Fort Worth, and Mesquite public schools! The students, their families, and school staff enjoyed an evening of fun, food, family, and more at Dallas Heritage Village, home to the largest and finest collection of 19th century pioneer and Victorian homes and commercial buildings in Texas on Thursday, June 9, 2022.
Trinity Basin Preparatory encompasses the idea that it “takes a village to raise a child.” Local nonprofits that partner with the charter school were at the event to exhibit services available to students and families in the coming summer months and upcoming school year. Dallas Youth Sports, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Clayton After School Program, and Parents Advocating for Student Excellence (PASE) set up displays at the event, sharing information about resources available to the Trinity Basin Preparatory community.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the end of another successful school year with our students, their families, our staff, and prospective students and families at Dallas’ beloved Heritage Village,” Director of Development Brandon Duck said. “Our staff, students, and families have worked hard and we were glad to welcome them to an evening of fun and community on the last day of the school year.”
The event hosted current and prospective students, families, and staff as they enjoyed Dallas Heritage Village amenities through historical buildings and demonstrations to connect the classroom curriculum to the hands-on learning experience.
Students had the opportunity to explore a variety of historic buildings including the Section House, Farmstead, Schoolhouse, and Shotgun House. Trinity Basin Preparatory and the Village created an educational scavenger hunt, where the Village staff will be available to answer questions and provide support. Between historical activities, students posed for photos with beloved characters sat for face painting and shared popcorn and giggles with their classmates and families.
