During Mr. High's years at Crockett there were many school events, some of which were "legendary", as he called it. "You can talk to any student in PISD who went to Crockett and they can tell you about the Crockett Christmas Party," he said. The tradition of Christmas and Valentine's dances continued during Mr. High's time as principal. He also recalled field trips and school contests (band, choir, sports, etc.). Field trips included the planetarium in Tyler and the National Museum of Science and History in Dallas.
