UPDATE: STISD-Specific Questions from the Ultimate Quest

STISD's 2017 Kick-Off Convocation will be held on Monday, Aug. 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The morning activities - breakfast, a welcome, and mini conferences – will take place at the Med High and Science Academy campuses in Mercedes, and the afternoon team building activities will take place at a surprise location in McAllen. 

Med High is located at 700 Med High Drive in Mercedes, and Science Academy is located at 900 Med High Drive in Mercedes (Mile 2 West and Expressway 83).

Breakfast will be served at 8:00 a.m. at the Med High and Science Academy cafeterias.  

This year's theme is “Work Hard. Play Harder.” It is not centered around sports or physical activity. Please wear comfortable attire. Come ready to make friends, and bring your thinking cap! All activities will take place indoors.  

There will be two Mini Conference sessions.  Times are as follows:

Mini Conference I: 8:45 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Mini Conference II: 10:15 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
