Volunteers from Student Support Services help Speer Elementary 's counselor distribute AVID planners.

The Arlington ISD skipped the traditional beginning of the year convocation event for the second year in a row Thursday and instead celebrated its teachers and their commitment to students with the AISD Day of Service.

Non-campus employees for the district, which includes those working in finance, curriculum, human resources, educational support services and more, helped teachers and campus staff with everything from classroom set up and distributing textbooks to laminating and creating bulletin boards during the Day of Service. AISD teachers and staff are working hard to get their classrooms and campuses ready for the start of school on Aug. 22.

'It 's always a busy time to get classrooms ready for the start of a new school year, so we created the AISD Day of Service to provide extra support for our teachers and staff,' AISD Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. 'Our administration employees are excited to spend time in classrooms and on campuses to connect with teachers for the benefit of our students again this year.'
