Students swarm Square

Chris Devoe and his daughters Heaven and Amaya look through a goodie bag at the Back 2 School Block Party held Sunday on the Square. Amaya is a student at Porterdale Elementary School. About 2,500 people attended the event, which celebrated the start of a new school year. Organizers handed out 1,250 bookbags full of school supplies. Students return to Newton County schools Monday.
