Let this be the last “hoorah” for your kid(s) before going back to school!

The Grand Rapids Public School district is holding their annual back to school party this Thursday 8/17, at City High/Middle School from 4p-7p. The event is supposed to bring Grand Rapids parents and students together and get them ready for the new school year.

Plenty of kids activities are planned including:

  • Face painting
  • Slime-making
  • Balloon animals
  • Inflatables
  • Sand art
  • Photo booth

Plus tons more! MLive says that this year they have larger tents and more hands-on activities planned. Free food, giveaways and live entertainment will all be a part of Thursday’s celebration.

The event will also be informational for parents as there will be dozens of booths about school choices, special education services, after school programming, athletics, health, etc.

The Back to School celebration is FREE so just show up and get ready to have fun.

The first day of school for the Grand Rapids district is Monday, August 28th.
