Sophisticatedly silly songs simply spectacular
By Robin Scott
The auditorium at Dalhart High School was packed with excited guests. The children began by announcing in song, “We’re here because we’re here because we’re here because we’re here.” The audience immediately got into the silly song spirit and by the time the children began to sing “Yackety Yak” the audience was joining in.
Several of the 5th graders had speaking parts in the musical and a few participated in skits. They included Cassie Borunda, Skylar Carranza, Danielle McMillen, Gunnar Vance, Caden Evans, Romeo Salas, Tyler Brewer, Foster Conner, Charlie Rowell, Gaveyn Wheeler, Ben Romero, Chynna Darcus, Diego Ortiz, Galen Valdez and Zane Fixen.
Children from the 5th grade at DIS recently performed in a P.E. Program that featured creative exercise routines set to music. That program along with Thursday’s silly song event gave proud parents and family a double dose of their children’s talent and enthusiasm. Keeping parents connected to their children’s activities is one of the most important goals of the Dalhart Independent School District.
