Walmart is gearing up for back to school with events starting today with teacher appreciation.

Educators are invited to the Alcoa store, 1030 Hunters Crossing, and the Maryville store, 2410 U.S. Highway 411 S., from 12:30-4:30 p.m. July 13 to receive cake, beverages and a gift bag filled with school supplies and coupons.

Next Saturday, July 20, Walmart will hold a wellness event that provides students and their families access to health services including low-cost immunizations, free health screenings and in select locations, free vision screenings.

Parents also will be able to speak one-on-one with a Walmart pharmacist about any health concerns they have for their children going into the school year.
