Alief celebrates 100th anniversary this week

On February 14, Alief Independent School District celebrates its hundredth year of teaching and educating students.

The district chose the 100th day of school to celebrate its growth from a rural area to the diverse community that is now.

All around Alief, students participated in the “Alief: 100 Years of Love” video and art contests. High school students could submit a video about why the love Alief and why it was so special to them, while elementary students could create art showing their love for Alief.
