Back to School rally is Aug. 9
By Telishia Malone
Edna ISD will kick off the 2018-19 school year by hosting the Back to School Rally.
It will be held on August 9 from 4:30-6 p.m. at the Edna Elementary School located at 400 Apollo Dr.
All Edna ISD students and parents are invited to attend. The rally will provide families with health screenings and services, school supplies, and more.
Madalyn Maresh, assistant superintendent said, “Edna ISD has been very fortunate to receive outstanding community support – both in the participation and sponsorships to provide school supplies.
“With Walmart closing in Edna, it may be a bit more challenging for families to purchase necessary school supplies locally. We anticipate more students than ever will partake in this year’s Back to School Rally,” she said.
Food, face painting, activities, and demonstrations will be available for local residents.
