Community partners have combined efforts to make a bigger, better “Head of the Class Bash” back-to-school festival. The event will include the distribution of 3,000 free backpacks filled with required school supplies; access to a variety of services, including physical examinations and immunizations; numerous activities, such as financial literacy computer games, healthy cooking demonstrations, and bounce houses; and much more.
For the first time this year, the free family festival is being held at the Jack Stephens Center on the University of Arkansas Little Rock campus. The larger location and combined efforts of community partners will allow more students and families to access more resources and activities under one roof than ever before.
