Jump Back 2 School Planning Committee

The Jump Back 2 School Committee met Wednesday, June 21st to continue with their planning of their back to school event. According to the National Federation Survey (2010), the cost to prepare a child for their first day of school is $422.00 dollars. Not every family can afford such an expense, especially if they have more than one child. As a result, non-profit organizations, local business, and the Nogales School District work in collaboration to host a back to school event yearly, to help provide schools supplies to children in need within the Nogales School District. The goal is to have children equipped and ready for the first day of school. The event is not open to the public. School district staff help identify the children and families in need within the district. Families are mailed an invitation by the school district with a ticket inviting them to attend the school event. The event serves children from kinder through 5th grade. This year the back to school event will be held on
Saturday, July 15, 2017, from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. at the Ray Molera Gymnasium. The planning committee needs your help. If you would like to donate school supplies or become a sponsor contact us at: admin@makingconnections4u.org
