Free Back to School Bash
Posted on 14 August 2009
It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost time for kids to head back to school. Whitney Recreation Center will host the Fourth Annual Back to School Bash to help kids – and their parents – get back to the books from 10 am to noon Aug. 21 at 5712 E. Missouri Ave. near Boulder Highway. The center also will be collecting school supplies, which will be given out during the Back to School Bash, through Aug. 20. The event is free, but pre-registration is required.
The Back to School Bash will feature great resources for parents and lots of fun for kids. Some of the activities and services such as haircuts, hairstyles, music, face painting and a limited school supply giveaway will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Supercuts, Marinello’s School of Beauty, Whitney Library, Visiting Angels, Hot 97.5 FM, Custom Eyes, Nevada Covering Kids and Families, Three Square and Amerigroup Community Care are all partners in the event.
School supplies needed include crayons, pencils, loose leaf paper, notebooks, folders, pencil cases, erasers, colored pencils, pencil sharpeners, scissors, glue, glue sticks, backpacks, rulers, markers and anything needed to prepare a child for the coming school year. All contributions can be dropped off at Whitney Recreation Center through Aug. 20.
