Denton ISD, in partnership with the Denton Chamber of Commerce, will welcome approximately 300 employees new to the district during an event beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 3 in the Denton High School Gymnasium, 1007 Fulton Street. Lunch is provided.
Proceeds from the event will benefit new classroom teachers through a specific series of grants established with the Denton Public Schools Foundation to fund supplies for new teachers.
“In the past we’ve generated as much as $8,700 that is then given to new teachers through a grant process,” said Travis Veselka, Denton Chamber of Commerce’s Director of Membership and Marketing. “It’s important to us that these teachers feel welcomed and supported by our community.”
To date, more than 44 vendors have reserved a space at the event and they will be on hand to provide information on local resources and services that are beneficial to new families in our community.
