The first day of school for Chicago Public School students is September 2. And the push to make this a safe and successful year is well underway. There was lots of dancing and partying in the streets of Englewood as students, teachers and others were getting ready to return to class.

Mayor Daley, Police Chief Jody Weis, and other officials were also walking the parade route.

Some children even scored free school supplies.
