Special Thanks

4th Grade – Class of 2025

We would like to express our gratitude to the 2016-17 4th Grade Class for their generosity!

The gift of a sensory/texture wall for our sensory room will benefit students for many years to come!  

 

 

  

Team Armstrong raised $825 for the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas 2016 Buddy Walk on October 23.  
Our 27 member team consisted of campus staff, parents, students, family and friends.  
We would like to extend 
special thanks to those who walked and donated!  
It was a fun fall morning!

 

Thank you, Park Cities Learning Difference Association!!!

We appreciate the generosity of Park Cities Learning Difference Association!  

PCLDA funded the purchase of materials and resources that will directly impact students in our LIFT and Structure classrooms!  

Also, PCLDA recently funded a great portion of a TEACCH training for two of our team members!  This upcoming training will directly impact instruction for our students!  

We are so grateful for the generosity and support from this great organization!  

Armstrong teachers and students thank you!!!
