Unfortunately for some parents here in the key city, financial problems make it a time they dread.
In an effort to create some relief, today LULAC or League of United Latin American Citizens, held their annual back to school rally.
Over 200 hundred people gathered to receive free school supplies, snacks and education tips.
LULAC reminded students to stay in school and stressed the importance of a good education, something that some parents never experienced for themselves.
