The Houston School District will host a back-to-school event 2 to 6 p.m.Thursday (Aug. 11) at Hiett Gymnasium.
“School-A-Palooza” is a fun, resource-filled event to help kick off and celebrate going back to school.
The event is free, and everyone is welcome.
Monetary donations are also sought for school supplies. The district will purchase exactly what each grade needs, and those will be distributed by classroom teachers.
Schools resume on Aug. 22.
