Denton County Teacher Back-to-School Celebration

Join John McLeod, Democratic candidate for State Representative in District 64, as he celebrates with some of the hardest working men and women in the county, our teachers.
You may have noticed stores and businesses busier than normal and restaurant waiting times increasing, helping to remind us all that it's back to school time again. For the last few months the media and our conversations have been filled with discussion of our struggling Texas schools as the Legislature, once again, failed to increase school funding by even $1. However, what often gets overlooked is that despite the many failings of our representatives, we are blessed with some of the best educators anywhere. These hardworking men and women continue year in and year out to overcome substantial obstacles to teach our children in difficult circumstances. To thank them for all their sacrifices and hard work, we are hosting a special event. We will be providing fun, food and fabulous door prizes thanks to the generosity of many local businesses that care about our teachers.
What: Denton County Teacher Back-to-School Celebration
When: Wednesday, August 16th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Where: Downtowner, 725 N. Elm St., Denton
