Mandatory Junior Parent Meeting

Dear Class of 2020 Parents,

Friendly reminder, ​Wednesday, February 6, Theater, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m we are having a special meeting to discuss the Class of 2020’s graduation venue. It is important that all parents be present for this important discussion.

Background:

Historically, each individual class at SEM has graduated from the Majestic Theater located at Downtown Dallas. Previous classes have secured this venue by fundraising and paying all required expenses and fees. Graduating from the Majestic Theater has never been a free event. Graduating from the Majestic Theater in May 2020 is only possible if all funds are fundraised through SEM PTSA and with your support. Of course, it is not obligatory for any parent to donate funds toward graduating at the Majestic Theater – it is not mandatory for any parent to donate funds. I will simply emphasis that your child / Class of 2020 cannot graduate at its historic venue/location if it cannot gain support to fundraise.

Purpose:

Parents, you have another option which includes graduating at Dallas ISD’s Ellis Davis location at no cost. This is the reason for our special meeting – I am seeking your input and will ask that each family cast one vote (digital via Google Survey). Voting link will be provided at the meeting and via “remind” on February 6th. I am asking that you cast your vote electronically to accomodate for parents who are unable to attend due to extenuating circumstances. That is why the online poll will be open from Wednesday, February 6, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. to Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. Only one vote per family. Be thinking about: Do I want my child to graduate at The Majestic Theater or Ellis Davis Field House?

There is no action needed on your behalf right now. I look forward to sharing all details at our upcoming spring meeting including a detailed financial analysis to help better inform you.

Respectfully,

Mr. Palacios
