NBC 6 along with Christus Health want local kids to be ready for the first day of school.
Preps are underway for the 5th annual Back-to-School Healthy Checkup at Sci-Port.
Tonight vendors are getting set up ready for parents and students to come get supplies.
Health professionals will also be offering free dental and eye exams, and free eye-glasses will be available for children who need them.
They expect to serve more than a thousand local kids, but you have to preregister in order to participate.
