Baptist Church to Help Mesquite School After Fire

A Church Comes To The Rescue

According to NBC DFW, a Mesquite School might have a temporary location after their facility caught on fire. Sadly, the fire was a total loss for Appleseed Academy. However, the Mesquite school is working with a local church in Meadowview to open up a temporary location. Now, the school’s workers are preparing the classrooms for students. The state still has to approve the new location. However, the school hopes to be up and running in a few days.
