It's back to school time!

For a lot of East Texas students, they'll be headed back to class this week. They'll be finding their way to their new classroom to start a new year.

Kindergarteners will be getting to know new kids and teachers.
Elementary school kids will be reuniting with some classmates from last year.
Middle schoolers will be adjusting to a bell schedule and changing classrooms.
High schoolers will be negotiating with counselors to get a schedule change to be with their friends.

The first day of school also marks a ritual for many students and parents - the first day of school picture. That picture represents so much, not just their first day of school, but growing up and changing as they start a new year every year. Moms and dads all over East Texas will be taking those innocent pictures with hand held signs marking what grade their going into. Pictures will be taken before the kids leave for school, outside the school and even with the teacher in the classroom.

Mix 93-1 and Whataburger want to celebrate the first day of school with you and we want to see those first day of school pics on you social media. We know you're going to post them there and when you do simply add the following hashtags on you Facebook or Instagram posts:
