OPS to host Back to School Bash and Book Fair at Baxter Arena

WHAT: FREE BOOKS, FREE T-SHIRTS, FREE BACKPACKS, AND FREE PHOTO OPS WITH SCHOOL MASCOTS, STAR WARS CHARACTERS, BATMAN AND MARVEL SUPER HEROES! That is just some of what students at all 63 schools can expect to see, do, and gather at this year’s OPS back to school bash in August. Students will also have opportunities to climb aboard a fire truck, explore the OPD Able 1 helicopter; get free candy and trinkets from community partners, reconnect with friends and visit with Dr. Logan.

All elementary school principals and other staff members will be present to meet, greet and welcome back
students and their families to the 2019-2020 school year.

To help students build on the momentum (nearly 3,000,000 minutes) they achieved during the OPS summer reading program, students will also have the opportunity to select some of their favorite books to take home and add to their personal libraries, so they can continue to meet their reading goals well into the school year and beyond.

A live DJ will provide music for those who love to move to the groove. Games such as corn hole, basketball shots and face painting will provide additional fun for students who attend. Food trucks will also be waiting outside to serve up delicious meals.

It promises to be a day of FUN, FUN and more FUN for OPS families!

WHERE: Baxter Arena (2425 S. 67 St.)
WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
WHY: Because family and community engagement is an important component for student success. It also helps create a positive bond between home and the school.
