Lauderdale County Schools held its annual convocation for teachers and administrators Monday morning.
It's an annual event to discuss goals for the district and get people excited about the new school year.
"It's good to see people. Everybody seems to get on the same page when we do this," said West Lauderdale Elementary School principal Larry Vick. "And it's a good starting point for us for our school year."
Vick said the convocation has the added benefit of being a reunion of sorts for district employees who have not interacted for about three months.
The first day of school for students is Friday, Aug. 7.
