    I was surprised by that, but the school didn’t feel that full (as usual). Was there some other event going on at the same time?

    I’ve seen the parking lot full for other events – The Science Olympiad, for example.

    Re[2]–ok, that’s true, BUT that’s an elementary school event held at a high school, it’s not a high school event…
    Re[1] It just goes to show what happens when most people get to school by 1 or 2 people in a car–the parking lot can’t hold them. A lot of kids get to Skyline by bus or being dropped off.

    In fact–interesting sidenote–Sulura Jackson spent some time talking about how some kids who had chosen Skyline as a school of choice/magnet had to drop out and go to their home school because of the AAPS transportation cuts. I am not sure how many kids they lost that way but the freshman class has just over 380 kids and the sophomore class has well over 400.

    There was also a box in the lobby for people with transportation problems to write notes. I don’t know how many people saw them.

    There seemed to be some event going on in the football stadium that night. Possibly a soccer game.

    I’m encouraged that so many parents came.
