Students at Rodriguez Elementary were given a "Welcome" goodie bag to start off their morning. The bag had a few essential items that you would find in a students desk. One of the items was an eraser. The eraser was a reminder that no one is perfect and if you make a mistake you can erase it and start again.
Kindergarten students in Ms. Huser's classroom at Vogel Elementary are seen sitting on the carpet learning about their classroom rules. They were all smiles and very inquisitive on the first day of school.

Seguin ISD again enjoyed access to the HEB Family Foundation Camp in Leakey last week. Thirty students participated in the Adventure School Summer Camp. This program is just one of the many free camps that SISD offers to the SISD community. The Adventure School was designed to be an extension of the 5th grade outdoor education program allowing students an opportunity to learn advanced skills including zip-line, rappelling, rock climbing, mountain biking, stand up paddle board, and kayak and canoe skills including rescue techniques.
Thank you to the Seguin Chamber of Commerce, its membership and volunteers for creating 95 goodie bags that will be handed out to our new teachers on Monday morning.
"Another Seguin business is congratulating our students and teachers for their academic success. I want to thank Mr. Davila and his son Adrian for helping spread the good news with a sign outside their restaurant.
