To tip off the back-to-school season, the Dallas Mavericks continue their commitment to celebrating and providing resources to the Dallas Independent School District students, faculty and staff by hosting a Back-to-School Celebration at Adelle Turner Elementary School and Lincoln High School. With a donation of school supplies and dental kits, provided by Jefferson Dental & Orthodontics, the Official Dentist of the Dallas Mavericks, the Mavs ManiAACs, D-Town Crew and Mascots Champ and MavsMan will welcome students, along with special appearances by Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall, Dallas Mavericks player Grant Williams, Dallas ISD Chief of School Leadership Tiffany Hutt and Dallas ISD Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Elizalde.
The Mavericks committed to Adelle Turner Elementary School through the multi-year Adopt-A-School program, investing in resources and supplies, and providing training, volunteers and mentorship from the Mavericks organization, while working collaboratively with the school leadership to develop a shared vision in creating an inclusive and diverse school environment. The partnership is part of the Mavs Take ACTION! plan to address racial inequities and disparities, promote social justice and drive sustainable change in Dallas/Fort Worth. The adoption of Adelle Turner Elementary School, a predominately Black Dallas ISD school with a high percentage of low-income students, supports investment in education by nurturing the community and building quality relationships with school leadership, classrooms and students.
