BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The oldest school in the Rio Grande Valley expands its services to some of the youngest members of the community.

The school’s president tells Local 23 News that 34 students are already enrolled and will begin classes this week.

Edward Camarillo, “We have curriculums for them. We have a nice playground for the children. We’re excited to take these little ones and make them a part of our family.”
