“Oh cool!” Esmerelda G. exclaimed as she walked into the Wyly Theater’s rehearsal space. It is no surprise that this phrase was repeated many times on Friday evening as more SCORES kids shuffled into the lime green, mirrored room overlooking an Astro-turf patio with a view of the Dallas Arts District. The scene was stunning.
And then the kids began their poems and the excitement in the room buzzed. Stevens Park Elementary proclaimed their poetic love of soccer, Cesar Chavez Learning Center performed odes to their namesake Cesar Chavez, Anson Jones Elementary recited the virtues of recycling, Maple Lawn Elementary told tale of themselves and their families, and Lida Hooe Elementary reflected on the travails of school.
It was a fantastic event and the kids did a great job! Thank you coaches, parents, students, and the Wyly Theater for making this event a success!
