(WMC-TV) - Kids getting out of their parents' cars at Lucy Elementary seemed eager to get to class Monday morning. And parents were not holding back their excitement either.

"I am, I'm looking very forward to this year," said parent Tenesha Rayford.

And just like you might expect when hundreds of students are being dropped off, things tend to get a little crowded.

"Typical crowded," said parent Shelly Muston. "Everybody dropping everybody off and just a madhouse."

Feeling were mixed about how things will work out with the new unified school district.

Some think the new changes will be good for education, but others say they hope to have more options next year.

"Millington is going to have their own school system soon, so I'm hoping we will be in with Millington," said parent April Davenport.

Meanwhile, kids said they just want to have a good year. youngsters we talked to say they just want to have a good year.

"I want to have fun and do good," said Zhane Davenport.
