Wednesday marked the first day of school for many districts, including Alief ISD.
Students packed into Petrosky Elementary School before the bell rang as school officials talked with us about new expanded programs. This marks the first year that the district is offering full day pre-K. The school is also one of several in the district to offer a Mandarin immersion program. Last year it kicked off for just one grade, now it has expanded to kindergarten and first grade and we’re told it will continue to expand every year.
