Mansfield ISD will host its annual back-to-school bash on Saturday, Aug. 7 from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts, 1110 W Debbie Lane.
The event, meant to bring the community together for a day of family fun, will officially kickoff the start of the 2021-22 school year.
In addition to a wide variety of activities and games, there will be school supplies, student health services and more—provided completely free of charge to Mansfield ISD students.
Through various sponsorships and donations, the district is able to provide backpacks filled with school supplies through our Stuff the Bus Campaign community fundraiser. The fundraiser raises the money necessary to buy the school supplies that will be distributed at the bash.
If you are interested in helping us reach our goal of giving away 5,000 backpacks, please consider making an online donation or becoming an event sponsor.
At the bash, school supplies, shoes and health services will be provided free of charge to MISD students.
Backpacks and shoes will be given to Mansfield ISD families on a first come, first serve basis. Backpacks will be distributed at the Ben Barber Innovation Academy, across the parking lot from the MISD Center for the Performing Arts.
Services include sports physicals, immunizations, eye exams and other health resources. Bring your child's shot records to take part in the free immunizations.
No registration is required, but families will be required to check-in for the school supplies and health services provided. Parents/students should be ready to provide the student's ID number on the day of the event for verification.
Community groups and businesses that wish to provide relevant services, products and information to attendees have the opportunity to occupy a booth at the bash. Booth space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Reserve your space here.
If you have questions about an existing booth request, please contact Elizabeth Carmody at 817- 299-6369 or ElizabethCarmody@misdmail.org.
Each campus will be in attendance with fun activities like bounce houses, obstacle courses and more to interact with our MISD families. In addition, a variety of student performances will be held in the Performing Arts Center. This will be an opportunity for parents/guardians and students to meet with the campuses they will attend and see some of the many programs Mansfield ISD has to offer.
