Classes resume in a week, but this event was about getting fired up for school. The drum cafe was on hand, along with a number of other speakers.
"There's a lot of passion, there's a lot of commitment, there's a lot of emotion, and that's a very good way to start the school year" said ECISD Superindendent Hector Mendez.
He added that he wants all ECISD campuses to become recognized campuses from the state, continuing on improvements made in the past school year.
MISD held their convocation last Friday.
