DISD Scholars from Harry Stone

On Thursday, March 19th, Dallas ISD recognized 7th, 8th, 9th & 10th graders in the top 5% of their grade level for the entire school district in a ceremony at Ellis Davis Field House.
We wanted to make sure that we at Harry Stone also acknowledge their achievements, and in particular the 21 7th and 8th grade students from Harry Stone who made this list. By my rough calculation, that’s around 15% of our 7/8 graders.
This is the first year of an annual recognition ceremony planned by DISD for our district, and our school’s, top performing students. We look forward to adding Harry Stone students to this list year after year. Congratulations to all of the DISD Scholars from Harry Stone for the 2014-2015 school year.
Thanks, Mr. Bennett, for highlighting this program and our phenomenal students.
