Christmas In The Stars

 Duncanville ISD used 'The Force' to create a Star Wars-themed float for the city's "Christmas in the Stars" holiday parade on Friday, December 4. The district's entry featured students dressed in Santa hats brandishing blue light sabers, a video screen playing fight scenes from the Star Wars series and a huge reproduction of an AT-AT vehicle from the Empire Strikes Back movie created by Tamara Gurnell's construction class at Duncanville High School. Alexander Elementary School's drum line performed on the float along the parade route.

Carla Fahey, Janice Savage-Martin and Tom Kennedy from the Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees rode along on the float along with members of the district's administrative team: Assistant Superintendent for Campus Support, Mike Chrietzberg, Chief Financial and Operations Officer, Ronald Kuehler and Dr. Sandra McCoy-Jackson, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.

Choirs from several of Duncanville ISD's elementary campuses performed following the official tree lighting ceremony.
