We’re getting excited to get back to school in the next few weeks! For us here at the Texas Book Festival it means the Festival is getting close and we have a new year of Reading Rock Stars to get ready for. We’re planning, organizing and ready for a new year.
It’s a good time to pause as we begin to get overwhelmed by to-do lists and shopping to remember that this time of year brings as much anxiety as it does anticipation. Parents become worried as costs begin to pile up, and students are transitioning to new friends, new classes, and new teachers. This is where back-to-school festivals and programs come in handy; a prepared student is a more confident student, there are many community resources that can help you and your family to get prepped for the start of the new school year.
We’re proud to participate in El Mundo’s annual Back to School festival on August 19 at the AISD Delco Activity Center, where attendees can participate in backpack and school supply giveaways, vaccines, health screenings, vision screenings, raffles and door prizes, a community resource fair, music and entertainment, fun for kids, snacks, and family fun. The event is FREE and open to the entire community.
We’re looking forward to helping to give members of our community school supplies and get kids excited for the new school year. We’d love to see you there!
