Dosey Doe to Hoedown
When a group of youngsters begins a program with “Howdy, partner!” you can bet your bottom dollar you’re at the annual SBS Hoedown. Texas pride and rodeo spirit swelled at the treasured 30-year tradition presented by PK4 and Bridge students. Little buckaroos donned in jeans and denim skirts, cowboy hats, boots and bandanas galloped into the E Gym to perform Texas-themed songs, square dances and recite Texas fun facts for an audience of parents, grandparents and special guests alike. The E Gym was filled with SBS legacy -- of the 76 students in PK4 and Bridge, 25 of them are children of SBS alumni or former SBS students.
Head of School Dr. Don Davis welcomed the audience of proud parent wranglers. “Thank you to our parents and grandparents who have paved the way and laid a foundation of a biblical worldview to our children, as we instill Judeo-Christian values at Second Baptist School from generation to generation.”
Capturing the spirit of our rich Texas heritage, students rode stick horses, performed a square dance and sang songs that included “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” “The Lonesome Trail” and “God Bless, Texas!” Learning the pattern of songs, developing large motor skills through dance and gaining self-confidence by performing in front of an audience allows academic, physical, social and spiritual growth for our young cowboys and cowgirls.
