Intune is an after school music mentor club where Paschal high school students give lessons on Guitar, Ukulele, or Piano to our 4th & 5th grade De Zavala students.
Leaders 5 is a mentoring program that allows all of our 5th grade students to make an impact in the lives of kindergarteners here at De Zavala. Using the skills they learned in Academy 4, our 5th graders meet with their mentees each month to discuss leadership traits, read a story, and build positive relationships through fun community building activities.
As an enrichment club for pre-k through 5th grade students, our mission is to celebrate Hispanic culture by researching and educating our De Zavala family on the various aspects of Hispanic countries that make up our student population and inspire students to become conscious global citizens.
Club de Cultura
De Zavala offers coaching for many events in the district UIL competition from music memory to chess puzzles. The purpose of UIL is to prepare students for citizenship by providing healthy character building educational activities. Students learn many skills through UIL, such as public speaking, writing, and teamwork.
Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books - Battle of the Books consists of three competition reading teams including 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Our students participate in multiple novel studies and and book club meetings throughout the year and compete annually at the district competition held at TCU.

Their vision is to help create schools and communities where every child is connected, respected, and provided a safe environment in which to thrive.
Floor Ball Club
I'm excited to start the very first floorball club in a DFW public school district ever! Although some might assume it a "made up sport" floorball is growing in popularity here in the US after taking over various countries in Europe by storm! In fact, ESPN will be televising floorball for the first time in November! 🙂
Floorball is a great sport for everyone. It's a fast paced sport that is suited for players of all ages and abilities . The rules promote safety among players with minimal contact on the body or stick allowed. The sticks are made of carbon (and/or) fiberglass, and won't damage wood or synthetic surfaces. The ball is designed to be controlled, and go exactly where you want it to go. Unlike floor hockey you won't have to use a puck that jumps all over the place, or a street hockey ball that can damage walls. Younger floorball players are required to wear protective eye guards, but unlike floor hockey, players don't need protective equipment to play.
Parents, be ready for your kids to fall in love with a new sport!
