Mardi Gras Ball Committees
2022-2023 SBDM Committees!

Dealey’s SBDM—the “site-based decision making” group that serves as an advisory council for Principal Ibarra and her staff—is creating four committees for the 2022-23 school year. We are looking for committee members, and this is an excellent opportunity to become more directly involved in school governance. If you would like to join one of the committees, please e-mail Lance Currie ( and Bridgett Neeley (

Academics: Help Dealey meet its goal of becoming “A” rated by the Texas Education Agency!
Leadership: Alaina Livingston & Ms. Emery
Community: Help Dealey expand its culture of engagement and inclusion so that all feel a part of the Dealey family.
Leadership: Sarah Diouf & Stephanie Garner
Safety/Security: Help Dealey communicate with parents effectively on safety and security measures. And don’t prop open doors!
Leadership: Lance Currie & Ms. Schneider
Strategic Positioning & Marketing: Help Dealey tell its “story” in a world where parents have many choices on where to send their kids.
Leadership: Bridgett Neeley & Ms. Daroche
The committees will likely meet at least every other month. Each committee will be asked to identify goals and metrics. And each committee will be asked to include goals to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion.

 Finally, the next SBDM meeting is November 17, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. It’s open to all, so please join us!

2022 - 2023 PTA Reflections Program
Reflections has been a staple arts program in many schools for over 50 years. Through the efforts of our Local PTAs, millions of students have found a creative outlet in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.

With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.

Reflections has grown to be one of the largest nationwide programs of its kind, with more than 200,000 students participating annually.
Submit an original entry by November 11th, 2022.
