Wrap up from an All-Star spring
This spring was a whirlwind for the North Texas All-Stars, finishing the school year with over 550 students served across 5 school sites and a record-breaking spring fundraiser. The All-Stars wrapped up the semester with exciting field trips and new experiences. Take a look through our highlights from the spring.

Hector P. Garcia’s spoken word club participated in a city-wide event at Da Verse in Deep Ellum. This spoken word event gave students from across the Metroplex a chance to listen to their peers from all grades preform and express themselves through dance or various art projects. We’re extremely proud of Vanessa, Edgar, Rodney, and Shanell for practicing their public speaking skills and performing their original poetic pieces in front of the large crowd.

Our Irma L. Rangel students rallied together to give back to their community and spent time serving meals at the Dallas Life Shelter. The All-Stars not only served food, but also helped carry trays, and cleaned and cleared tables. The All-Stars were both thankful and excited for the opportunity to spend time with those living at the shelter.

E.H. Cary All-Stars watched the Texas Rangers play the Kansas City Royals at Globe Life Park in Arlington. Fox Sports donated the use of their amazing Fox wrapped charter bus, making the trip extra special, especially for our All-Stars who had never attended a professional baseball game.

Students from our newest school site, Felix G. Botello Elementary, visited the Latino Cultural Center to learn from local Dallas artists. Students were amazed at how art could reflect emotions and depict events from history.

ASAS Life School student, Joanna, blew the crowd away with her speech at the Rising Stars luncheon. While Joanna was a hard act to follow, our guests also thoroughly enjoyed their time listening to Dak Prescott’s personal and professional journey that led him to his success today. Thanks to our advisory board, and Gina Betts, event chairman, we raised over $420,000 for our Dallas All-Stars.

Overall, we are incredibly grateful for another successful year of providing enriching programs for our All-Stars. Thanks to all who helped invest into the lives of our students. Stay tuned with ASAS updates for an exciting new school opening this fall!
