Watauga County Families! We are talking to you. Please help spread the word.

Any family that is struggling to afford the high costs of back-to-school shopping please make plans to attend the 2018 Back to School Festival.

A frequently asked question is what can families expect at the festival. We have information provided by the Back to School Festival team.

The festival will offer school supplies to help lighten the burden of back-to-school shopping. They plan to do their best to supply as many supplies as possible from backpacks, to pencils, erasers, and paper. You need it, we probably have it!

NOTE: The festival cannot guarantee that your child will get everything on their supplies lists. You may need to purchase additional items based on your child’s personal school list. Check your child’s teacher’s supplies list (usually available at their school) after you leave the festival to see what additional items you may need to purchase yourself. If there are items on your child’s list that you cannot afford and the festival cannot readily supply, a team member will take your name and school name and do their best to get these items to you within the first week of school through your school social worker.

Professional Stylists will be on hand to offer school kids a fresh new look! If you haven’t seen the High School Cosmetology Room than you are in for a big surprise. Kids will receive a new haircut compliments of local professional stylists.

Local agencies will be on hand to offer information about beneficial programs and services.

Free lunch will be provided to all students and families.

Information Booths will also host activities for your family to enjoy. Come enjoy festivities and get into the back-to-school spirit!
