Of course, we are proud of our tamales and our award-winning restaurant, but the Moreno family’s true passion is enriching the lives of the children who are a part of our city’s schools. The opportunity we have to give back to the community through helping students in the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) means more to us than any of the accolades that have been bestowed on La Popular.
Education is the key to a successful and thriving city.
We believe in the DISD because we have seen it work, especially in the East Dallas area where my siblings and I attended DISD schools. We believe that if we can replicate our exceptional experience across the DISD, parents who once fled to the suburbs for private schools will begin to “Choose DISD.” A migration toward Dallas’ school district has the power to boost our economy and the diverse communities within the metroplex.
It’s important that we not only assist with donations, but that each of us also provides hands on help by mentoring students and encouraging them to become responsible, productive citizens. Additionally, voting is such an important factor in determining where our school district will be in the next 2-plus years, and it’s vital that you support our city’s future by casting your ballot for the right leadership for the DISD.
This year feels different.
If you, like the Moreno family, feel a strong commitment to Dallas and all it has to offer, it’s critical that you invest in relationships with your area schools and trustees. As is illustrated by our community’s avid sports fans, Dallas is a city that likes to win, and to achieve educational bragging rights, we must be willing to join the DISD’s team effort to become the “Top Urban School District” in the country.
