Thousands of students, families and volunteers attended the annual Back-to-School Block Party at Prince George’s Stadium to meet, greet and get #PGCPS1stDayReady! The “unofficial kickoff” to the new school year also marked the end of the #PGCPS15KBackpacks campaign, which collected 15,000 backpacks and school supplies from staff, community, businesses and sponsors.

Interim CEO Monica Goldson mingled with attendees and distributed backpacks, joined by Board Vice Chair Carolyn Boston and Board Members Raaheela Ahmed and Curtis Valentine. County Executive Rushern L. Baker III and State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks were among the elected officials in attendance. 

 Backpacks and supplies will be donated to Title 1 schools and community organizations throughout September.
