Free school supplies!

Free school supplies!

 One thing parents stress about every year is waiting for that school supply list. Then shopping for what's on the list. Then PAYING for what's on that list. Imagine not having to stress about any of that. That's the case in Diboll this year, as school officials have managed to collect enough grants to take the burden off the parents. Michelle Reed brings you that story at 5.

And in Nacogdoches, teachers and staff are already at work in preparation for the first day of school on Monday. Today, the district set goals. And as poor academic ratings plague the district, Donna McCollum explains at 6 how teachers find their inspiration in the students.

Also at 6, Caleb Beames brings you inside the courtroom, where a man stands accused of murdering a man he claims he shot in order to protect his mother.

Also at 6, it's not Hunger Games, it's Angelina College. Find out why students will be carrying around bows and arrows.
