LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - The Laredo Independent School District is saying "Thank You" to all of their children!
From Monday, April 7th, to Friday, April 11th, all LISD elementary schools are celebrating the "Week of the Young Child."
KGNS stopped by D.D. Hachar Elementary School and saw kids having fun with many activities. But kindergarten teacher Alberto Lopez says the fun doesn't stop there.
"Now, all week long we're doing fun activities for the kids," said Lopez. "For example, today we had a visit from Dr. Soto, we also had a science camp for the children, and it all culminates to the big event that we're having at Shirley Field this Friday."
Lopez says the kids are having a great time, and he loves seeing the smiles on their faces.
"It's important to the students, cause us teachers are very fortunate to work with them," said Lopez. "Hopefully we can provide them with at least something positive in their lives. To work for it, go to college, and, you know, just help the community."
