    Do the math: Girls + Education

    Girls + Education = The Future at Thomas Haley Elementary School

     

    Thomas Haley#Elementary School is a Recognized campus of Irving Independent School District, which is located 12 miles west of Dallas. We have 170 students enrolled in the QuESt After School Program sponsored by 21st Century.

    Out of the 170 students enrolled in QuESt, we have approximately 100 girls and they are a great example of why girls are the future of United States. The girls enrolled in the program range from Kindergarten to 5th grade and they participate in activities such as book club, peer mentoring and even debate. Although most of these girls are under 10 years of age, their thought process can rival students twice their age.

    Each day the girls at Thomas Haley Elementary demonstrate why they are the future by being leaders on campus and encouraging other students (even the boys) to be serious about their education. The girls are excited each day about interactive enrichment activities and they excel in and outside the classroom. Not only are they excited about their education; they are able to tell teachers which colleges they are considering at such a young age. Thomas Haley Elementary is located in a low economic community and throughout all the obstacles these young minds may face, they are very optimistic about the future and they are taught to make results rather than excuses.

    The adults of this great nation should know the outlook of the United States is safe because the girls of Thomas Haley Elementary School QuESt are confident that Girls + Education = Future.
