SAVE THE DATES FOR BACK TO SCHOOL RALLIES, CUTS & CURLS
The district’s Office of Equity, School Support, & Community Engagement has teamed with many community partners to offer three special events that provide valuable resources for our families as we head into the 2021-22 school year.
This annual event provides elementary, middle, and high school students with free full-size backpacks and school supplies. Because of COVID-19 precautions, the YMCA of Central Kentucky again plans a drive-thru pickup format for the neighborhood rallies. Advance registration is required to reserve a time slot at one of the nine locations.
Please stop by Lexington Green to help stuff a school bus with donated supplies, which FCPS will distribute to students at the Cuts & Curls event. Suggestions: backpacks, earbuds/headphones, half-inch binders, 1-inch binders, 2-inch binders, composition notebooks, spiral notebooks (1 subject, 3 subject, and 5 subject), loose-leaf paper, index cards, folders, pencils (wooden and mechanical), pencils boxes/pouches, highlighters, markers, crayons, colored pencils, dry erase markers, scissors and Fiskars scissors, glue sticks, hand sanitizer, Kleenex, and Clorox wipes
Area barbers and stylists will offer free haircuts, braids, and new styles for FCPS students at the annual Cuts & Curls event, hosted by STEAM Academy and Success Academy at 1555 Georgetown Rd. Registration is required.
