CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - As the Lowcountry prepares for the start of classes, District 20 students got together Saturday for a big back-to-school celebration.

Students and their families gathered at Burke High School to get ready for the school year.
The event included information about the schools, as well as fun events like vendors and live music.

This also gave students and parents time to get to know their teachers.

"We also wanted to make sure that we help with supplies...but most importantly building relationships with out schools and our parents," Simmons Pinckney Middle School Associate Principal Nathan Nelson said.

Donated supplies for classrooms were collected and will be distributed to participating schools for their students, organizers say.

Classes start this Monday for Charleston County Students.
