With approximately two weeks away from the start of the new school year at San Diego ISD, Primera Iglesia Bautista held a back to school bash Saturday.

The bash got started with a few songs, a special blessing and a pet show.

Rev. Manuel Casso Sr. spoke to the students and their parents in attendance about the importance of taking Jesus Christ with them to school. He gave advise about making new friends and how not to be a bully.

Casso introduced Mother Goose to the children who had stopped by to read a story.

Students received a small packet of basic school supplies that would help them start the school year. All in attendance were treated to a meal.
