July 19, 2022

The swimming pools may be open for the summer swim season, you may still be planning that family trip to Six Flags or the Gulf Coast, and there’s probably a barbecue or two with friends and neighbors left on the calendar, but hard as it may be to believe, the first day of classes for Lamar CISD schools isn’t far off!

It won’t be long now before school supplies start filling up the shelves at the stores. Before the back-to-school season gets into full swing, we thought we’d take the time to give a shout-out to the amazing Lamar CISD schools located near Candela!
