"This year’s crowds equaled or exceeded the usual numbers of parents, grandparents and friends who took time from their busy schedules to have lunch with students and view the many examples of excellent student work on display in our hallways and classrooms," said DISD Superintendent Henry Scott. "In spite of the unusually high number of school days missed because of ice and snow, our students and teachers have worked hard to remain on task and on schedule. We’re tremendously proud of what they’ve accomplished … and the great improvements and high levels of successful learning we continue to see.


"Community support and family involvement play a huge part in student success, in that they encourage and motivate our students to do their best. We’re very grateful for this. Texas Public Schools Week offers the perfect opportunity for us to showcase student work while also thanking our community for the exceptional support they provide, year in and year out, for our schools and students."
