Hundreds of kids recognized for their perfect attendence
Hundreds of Laredo children were honored for having perfect attendance at school for the last six weeks.
Judge Hector Liendo hosted a perfect attendance picnic at Veterans Field for close to 800 students of three elementary schools Friday.
Liendo says kids have been rewarded for their achievements before, but never with a celebration this big.
He says the perfect attendance program serves as a way to teach children to be proud about going to school everyday.
