DISD a winner

Last week I went to Guyer High School at 6 p.m. to see a performance by the school choir.

When I drove into the parking lot, there were no parking places open for me to park. I went to a side lot where I found a spot — but the lots all around the building were almost full, at an evening hour.

I looked up the school grounds and saw the athletic stadium and its fields full of lights and cars around it.

I went inside the main building and it was reasonably crowded with students and others — all of whom appeared to be parents or friends.

As the choir director began, he said they had to finish no later than 8 p.m. to allow a show from Harpool Middle School to come into the auditorium.

When leaving the auditorium at the conclusion of a great performance by the Guyer choir, the school was as crowded as it was during a normal school day — adults and kids all over the school, inside and out.

I found out that evening there were two choir shows, theater rehearsal, a student conference meeting, a basketball practice and a lot of athletic events. There were a couple of hundred people in the school.

The DISD is a sure winner in my book for not only sponsoring a lot of events but also allowing schools in the evenings to support and sponsor events where parents and others can come and see what is going on.

Bob Treadaway,
