Returning back to school can be a stressful time for parents and children. Between finding new outfits and supplies the costs add up. However, the Red River School Board is trying to help diminish the cost through their Back to School Bash on July 30.
Items are supplied to all Red River Parish Students free of charge.
“It’s a joint effort, we have local business members who are our community partners and we have local churches who are doing supply drives,” said Superintendent Alison Hughes.
The Back to School Bash will also feature food, haircuts and other activities. Hughes is expecting roughly 1,500 individuals to attend, an increase from 1,200 last year.
