As any parent with small children knows, back to school time can be expensive. In fact, many parents spend more money preparing for the new school year than they do at Christmas. However, many children return to school without the basic supplies they need.
The annual Go Ready Back to School Festival helps students and families prepare for going back to school.
Get everyone ready and excited with free haircuts, immunizations, and clothing for students, free lunch, and family-friendly activities.
Local agencies will be on-site and able to provide families with information about food and housing, employment, health care, parent and family support, after-school programs, early learning and a variety of other community resources.
Go Ready! is brought to you by Vancouver Public Schools’ Family-Community Resource Centers and community partners, is free and open to all VPS families and students.
The 2019 Go Ready! Back to School Festival will take place on Wednesday, August 14th from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm at Hudson’s Bay High School (1601 E McLoughlin Blvd).
