HOUSTON – Several Houston-area school districts are starting the 2022-2023 school year on Monday. Among those, Alief Independent School District.

The district welcomed more than 40,000 students to the classroom.

The district also debuted the Maria Del Carmen Martinez Early Learning Center, a brand new campus for preschoolers. The new campus features interactive classrooms with learning themes that encourage students to use their imagination.

“We wanted something that is appropriate for students, for our four-year-olds that are coming into these buildings.” said Mari Martinez, Early Childhood Coordinator and namesake of Martinez ELC. “We wanted something that is hands-on, which is exactly what our children learn. They learn through play.”

Kids in New Caney ISD, Livingston ISD, Groveton ISD and Hull-Daisetta ISD have also started classes.
