The Grand Rapids Public Schools' Back To School Celebration scheduled for today has been moved from John Ball Park to City High-Middle School, 1720 Plainfield Ave NE.

The event will be held today from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.

This exciting event brings together GRPS students, their families, and prospective families to get ready for the coming school year.

Families will enjoy free food, giveaways, music, and live entertainment. Kids’ activities include games, bounce house, obstacle course, face painting, balloon animals, and arts and crafts. There will also be dozens of informational booths about school choices, special education services, after school programming, English Language Learner services, early childhood, adult education, athletics, school safety, health services, and much more! School uniform providers will also be at the event, so families are encouraged to bring cash or credit card to purchase uniforms, which are required for elementary, K8, and middle school students this fall.

The Back to School Celebration is brought to you by Grand Rapids Public Schools and title sponsor Applied Imaging. Additional sponsors include Grand Rapids Community College, Meijer, Comcast Internet Essentials, TRiO Educational Talent Search, Goodwill, Kohler Expo’s Kids and Family Expo, and Screen Ideas.
