Back to School Carnival held in Anna, IL

ANNA, IL (KFVS) -

Not every kid likes to go back to class after a long summer, but one Illinois school thinks they have just the thing to get kids excited about it.

Lincoln Elementary in Anna, Illinois hosted a Back to School Carnival on Thursday night, Aug. 14.

Kids and parents got to enjoy some free food, games and even a bounce house. Even better, students were given free school supplies.

'Just a night for the kids to get together and meet their teachers, faculty members and administration," Mark Laster, district principal, said. "They've got a scavenger hunt going on inside where they are touring the building, they come out here and all the churches have free school supplies for them and of course we've got food and bounce houses and everything else."

Organizers say the carnival is a great way for kids to hit the ground running when heading back to class.
