SILVIS, ILLINOIS -- Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 is the first day of school for Silvis students and kids at George O Barr Elementary School got a special treat.
Volunteers including The Mayor, Silvis Police and Silvis Fire, and retired teachers held signs welcoming back the students. They also blew bubbles and gave out high fives.
Our Good Morning Quad Cities crew helped kick off the school year last year. Angie, Jon, and Eric were back Wednesday morning to do the same.
The teachers say it's important for kids to start the year off on a good note.
Teachers also lined up outside of North East Junior High to welcome the students back to school.
