NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Hundred of people gathered for a back-t-school event in North Little Rock today.

North Little Rock Academy provided kids with free school supplies, immunizations, hair cuts and dental exams.

Kelly Phillips of the Junior League of North Little Rock says it's important for students to be in the right state of mind -- and ready to go -- on the first day of school.

"If your kids teeth are hurting, they can't concentrate and do what they need to be doing at school. If they're worried about whether their haircut looks like a friends' they're worried about that and not about learning important things," Phillips said.

The Rose City Community Church of Christ and the Junior League of North Little Rock sponsored the event.
