“We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting our 2nd annual Back To School Bash at Red River High School on Monday, July 30th at 5:30.
“We will be offering backpacks filled with supplies for grades Pre-K thru 8. Student’s grades 9-12 will be receiving bags filled with the supplies they need for the upcoming school year.
