Even though it is hard to believe, it will be back to school for Texarkana kids next week.

There are some events planned to get the kiddos ready to return to class. All four of the cities public schools will begin with a Meet the Teacher evening, this Thursday the 9th, with some campuses having that in the days following.

Each district will have varying orientations and special events. If your district has not already done so there will be schedule pick-ups. Of course there is the ever increasing list of school supplies that need to be picked up before the first day of class.

Liberty-Eylau and Pleasant Grove actually have their first school day on Monday August 13, with Arkansas High and Texas High getting started on Wednesday August 15.

Already beginning are varsity Volleyball games, with football right around the corner, kicking off before the end of this month.

You can get a complete list of pre-school activities and school calendars at the respective school websites which are listed below. Here's hoping it's a great school year for you're kids, not only in Texarkana, but around the Four States Area.
