YISD hosts Back To School Rally, backpack giveaway
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The Ysleta Independent School District helped gear up their students for the upcoming school year.
YISD gave away 2,500 backpacks Saturday morning full of school supplies which students said will help their families save some money.
Chico, the El Paso Chihuahua's mascot was also on hand bright and early this morning to give away the backpacks.
"I had to get up early and come here, which is pretty boring. Then we got in here and I got this cool backpack, check it! And yeah, it was pretty fun,” Samantha Gonzalez, one of the backpack recipients told our crew.
Higher education schools also attended the back to school rally -- such as El Paso Community College and UTEP.
