Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Parents and students in Fargo are back into the swing of things after the summer break. Thursday was the first day of school for Fargo public schools.

Parents snapped photos of their elementary students in front of the Hawthorne school sign. Middle-schoolers at Carl Ben Eileson were out early socializing and catching up after summer vacation.

One parent says her kindergartner is most excited about his new lunch box and backpack.

Leah Smith – Parent: “We're really excited, a little bit sad to leave our friends at our old childcare center, a little bit of tears this morning, but real excited."

Overall enrollment in the Fargo school district on the first day is just over 11,000.
