On Friday, December 8, an unusual weather phenomenon occurred when El Campo saw snow for the first time in a close to a decade. This was many ECMS students' first time experiencing snow. Those that came to school were allowed to go outside and play in the snow before heading to class. Many students commented that they enjoyed this unique opportunity.
