This Saturday, Waco ISD hosted their 7th annual Family Fest event.
At the event, parents were able to register their kids for school. All students got free backpacks and school supplies. Families were also given the opportunity to get free immunizations, dental and vision examinations.
“It’s kind of costly when you have more than one child to buy backpacks and school supplies for so it really helps a lot,” Richard Carvajal said.
Waco ISD said this event is to make things easier for the parents and bring the community together.
If you did not get a chance to attend the event you can still register your child online at wacoisd.org or go to any Waco ISD school.
