NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Most students are looking forward to the last day of school.

We found in Nacogdoches some kiddos and their parents anticipating the first day of school.

They were at the Pre K- and Kindergarten Roundup, still going on, at the Nacogdoches ISD District Support Center.

Until 7 p.m. tonight. parents can enroll their child for classes.

If you can't make it, registration will continue all summer long.

There are some good reasons to get your child in school at an early age.

"It gives them an opportunity for their children to begin early literacy programs,” said Chante Davis, Nacogdoches ISD’s executive director of accountability and federal programs. “It engages the student in social activities with other children their age. It involves them in the school system. We're able to recognize any special needs that the child has ahead of time."

Anyone enrolling their child in Pre-K or kindergarten should bring the child's birth certificate, parent identification, proof of residence, and proof of income if they have to qualify for socio-economic programs.
