Despite the rain, Robstown Independent School District students attended the district's third annual Back to School Rally at the Robstown High School Football Stadium on Friday.

Administration staff and high school cheerleaders were present to help distribute the drawstring backpacks to students.

Superintendent Dr. Maria Vidaurri said the event was a way to talk to parents and answer any questions they might have about the up-coming school year.

"We want to make sure everyone is ready for day one," Vidaurri said. "This is us saying we're excited and we want to welcome them back."
